PD Design were fantastic. They intrinsically listened to our brief but also provided guidance from their extensive experience that has resulted in a product we couldn’t be happier with. PD Design oversaw party wall negotiations, the Thames Water build-over agreement as well as the planning and building regulation requirements that meant the construction phase was uninterrupted, delivered on-time and most importantly within budget. Paul was happy to recommend local Building Contractors, but equally happy for us to introduce our own following personal recommendation. PD Design subsequently reviewed tender packages and ensured comprehensive yet competitive quotes were issued, offering the ability to value engineer the scheme if desired, yet also challenging architectural design and merit. A highly skilled and professional team that was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you.

Construction Company Director

We have been using the expert services of PD Design for around about 10 years now. Their professionalism and industry experience are unrivaled, making it a pleasure to work with Paul Draper for our regular and various architectural needs. With their consistently high standards of service and quality, I would highly recommend PD Design Consulting to other businesses – you won’t be let down.

PD Design have done a terrific job securing planning permission for our major house extension that is located in a conservation area. They fulfilled every aspect of the brief, which included significantly increasing the square footage, whilst maintaining the character of the inside of the house and also dramatically improving the external look. It is worth mentioning that Paul’s combined knowledge of architectural and structural design was invaluable to create the desired space we required and keep within our budget for the project. The structural design was fully considered at the planning stage and was explained very clearly. They were always available, delivered to their project timeline and were a pleasure to work with.

PD Design came highly recommended by friends of ours. It was the first time we’d taken on a project of this size, so we were understandably nervous and did not know about all of the processes involved. The initial consultation with Paul was extremely comforting. He explained very clearly and concisely about undertaking a building project and made it sound all so very simple and easy. The meeting was followed by a very comprehensive fee proposal which was on a fixed fee basis, which was helpful for budgeting, etc. We were very impressed and were keen to work with Paul from the outset. PD Design were conscious of our budget and that we wanted a home that looked great but not necessarily with the highest spec. They were great at making suggestions and being flexible with materials to get the finish we wanted. PD Design also value engineered the project, making suggestions on how to reduce the cost of the structural works whilst not compromising the design. We would absolutely recommend P PD Design. The whole process from our first meeting to completion was a well organised, simple process. Everybody who comes to our new home is blown away by the transformation. They’ve helped us turn a standard victorian terraced house into a home with a real individual design and a wow factor that stands out from the rest.

We have used Paul and PD Design for both our ground floor extension and our loft conversion building projects. On both occasions Paul provided a quick efficient service, incorporating our own ideas along with his own to highlight the design options available to us. Paul was happy to provide several alternative layouts and configurations for us to look at and met with us to talk through the various options. We had a positive, smooth running experience on both occasions and encountered no issues raised by the local council planning office. We would highly recommend Paul and PD Design to take your project forward.
