What clients say about my work...
We presented Daniel with a challenging project to create access to our landlocked property. Due to the nature of the property, this involved the construction of a bridge from the highway. Throughout the process there was strong resistance from the neighbouring properties and the Parish Council. Despite this Daniel remained professional and was extremely calming throughout, suggesting numerous alternative solutions to achieve our goal.
He represented us at the final committee meeting and successfully achieved planning consent for our plans. We would definitely use Daniel for any future projects and have no hesitation in recommending him.Martin and Alison Verity
Daniel has been an invaluable asset when designing an extension to turn our house into a home. He was always happy to answer my questions, took time to explain and kept me informed at every step of the process. His diligence ensured the proposals were granted planning approval despite the challenges of a Conservation Area and several neighbourhood objections. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.Amanda Fox
We have worked with Dan on several projects now. Dan’s knowledge of listed buildings is impressive and we really appreciate and respect his thorough diligence and constant drive to refine details. His calm demeanour means he takes the stress out of projects for us and he is never scared to challenge us to push the design boundaries.Henry and Richard Miller-Robinson
On our first visit from Daniel we knew he was for us. We liked his personal, enthusiastic approach straight away. He loved to get stuck in and get his hands dirty – that’s what we liked, a down-to-earth hardworking gentleman.
If we ever had any problems or concerns we knew all we had to do was to call and he would put our minds at ease, and it would be dealt with. His attention to detail particularly during the building works was second to none. We are really pleased with the transformation of our building, particularity the reinstatement of the Victorian façade which Daniel based on historic research. Customers and passers-by regularly comment on what a lovely job has been done, and many remember it in days gone by.Manny and Julie Ali, M&J Framing
