Featured Reviews for Architects & Building Designers in Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK
Karen Parry Architect
Architects & Building Designers in Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK
"Without any knowledge of this company other than online information,I tasked Karen to look at development possibilities for my 200 year old cottage. I did not want to move house though the cottage was just too small for my extending family. The resultant design that was approved by the local authority exceeded my wildest dreams and I solely put this down to Karen and her team's design talent and total perseverance. We really are indebted to her for what she achieved. I cannot thank Karen enough. She is also highly professional, focussed and very disciplined in terms of timescales and meeting deadlines. Clearly, I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company."

Allison Architecture
Architects & Building Designers in Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK
"After getting quotes and meeting with a number of architects to undertake the planning and design of a single story extension to our property we chose Stephen Allison. I have rated his company 5 stars as we really cannot fault any aspect of the job he has done for us. As this was our first experience of extending a property he was very helpful and guided us through each step to be made. I found Stephen very approachable and pro active, always taking time to explain any points we were unsure of. He also put us in touch with a structural engineer that I would also recommend as highly and he has the same professional approach as Stephen. I would not think twice about using Allison Architecture in the future and would recommending to family and friends."

We found Claire very reliable, extremely personable and would highly recommend her services."

Thomas Robinson Architects
Architects & Building Designers in Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK
"I hired Thomas Robinson Architects (TRA) to design and project-manage an accessible extension and internal alterations for a residential listed building. The initial design idea was what inspired me to engage them further - it respected the original building but was very much a design element in its own right, being modern and yet classical at the same time. We established a programme of regular meetings throughout the design, planning application and building warrant processes and my thoughts and ideas were worked in wherever possible. TRA oversaw the tender process and appointment of a contractor and established monthly site meetings throughout the contract. Careful minuting of the meetings allowed issues to be followed through from month to month. Any issues with the contractor were dealt with timeously and there was a detailed approach to final snagging to ensure good quality finishes. Importantly the budget was very well managed, with some items being altered or removed to ensure it wasn't exceeded and this was done without detriment to the overall project. I felt confident in TRA to protect my interests throughout the project which dissipated any potential stressful situations. The finished house extension and alterations have exceeded all of my expectations - the internal space and views out are equally as impressive as the exterior. As a very satisfied client, I would have no hesitation in recommending TRA as a talented, attentive and highly professional company and would use them again if the situation arose."

E Blair Architect & Interior Designer
Architects & Building Designers in Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK
"Emma was on the ball and organised right from the word go. She gave me lots of ideas for my kitchen/ diner and decking layout and was on hand to guide us through the building and planning application processes. Really excellent architect and excellent customer service. We are so happy with the finished result!"

Architects & Building Designers in Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK
"We contracted Domestic Architecture in 2013 to work closely with us on a conceptual design, for a new build dwelling in a rural part of Aberdeenshire. This was to be a challenging project for both ourselves and D.A as the design would have to meet strict planning criteria and a high build specification. We are delighted to report that after three years of hard work, focused attention to detail and a close collaboration with D.A Architect, we have achieved full planning at first attempt. D.A were attuned with our specific requirements from the get go, and provided a very professional and responsive service. We are about to commence the build and we are very much looking forward to continuing our contractual relationship with D.A throughout this stage until final completion. I can highly recommend D.A to any prospective clients. I am confident that we will be able to report a 5 star rating once we complete the build."

JAM Architects Ltd
Architects & Building Designers in Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK
"We hired JAM Architects to design a significant single story extension to our rural three bedroom bungalow, comprising of a small extenstion to the front in order to add an ensuite and a large extension to the rear, with a utility room and large open plan kitchen, dining area and famly room and the existing kitchen becoming a fourth bedroom and WC. Prior to engaging John from JAM Architects, we spent a lot of time struggling to try and work out how we could fit everything in, however John spent time with us in order to understand our requirements and was then quickly able to turn our ideas into a range of options, giving us various choices in relation to the layout and cost. Once we had chosen our desired layout John submitted our drawings to the planning department and due to his obvious experience and attention to detail was able to get the plans approved without any real issues. The same could also be said with the building warrant application, as John worked closely with building control in order to ensure that we got the go ahead to build. Our extension is now well underway and John's detailed plans have been invaluable to the builders, however he is still on hand to assist when they have any questions. Thanks to John, our extension has been a pleasurable and exciting experience rather than a stressful and worrying one. We could not reccomend John and his company highly enough."

A-Cubed Design Ltd
Architects & Building Designers in Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK
"Amanda has provided an above and beyond service right from the outset. Working tirelessly to ensure that our design requests were both compatible with regulations stipulated and yet achieving all we wanted from the build. Keeping a keen eye on the detail throughout the project left us feeling confident and she was incredibly responsive to any queries which were raised. Amanda provides a very friendly and hugely professional service, and is worth every penny of her highly competitive fees! We chose A-Cubed Design through recommendation and I have no concern with now recommending her to others!"

A1 Architectural Design Ltd
Architects & Building Designers in Glasgow, Glasgow City, UK
"Mr Clark was recommended to us by our Builder when we decided that we wanted a large extension built. After meeting with Mr Clark we were happy to employ him as our Architect for our project. He is clearly an experienced Architect and provided us with suggestions and ideas throughout the process of having the plans drawn up. Mr Clark is very approachable and listened very carefully to what we wanted to have included in our extension. He was able to put our thoughts and ideas into the drawings which made us feel part of the process. Any issues with the drawings were very quickly and professionally dealt with by Mr Clark. We were also very grateful to him for overseeing the administration side with the Planning Department and working closely with our Builder and Structural Engineer. He contacted us regularly to give us updates on the drawings and the planning process. We thought that his professional fees were extremely good value and would have no reservation in recommending Mr Clark as an Architect."

Once you have frozen on the architect or building designer, chat through your goals, projected budget, scope of work, schedule and any other specific requirements you might have. Ask them to walk you through the process, including the number of architectural design consultations, site visits and what they will be delivering and when, e.g. feasibility study, a technical drawing, tender package and/or planning application drawings. Also, get a sense of whether they are a good listener, collaborator, and problem solver. Finally, be sure to find out what the architect needs from you,deeds, rights of way, deposit, staged payments and so on.
