We chose Tom as the architect for a significant building project on our Victorian home in a conservation area. We needed to shoehorn in a number of demands – kitchen diner, additional bedrooms and bathrooms, utility and boot rooms – into a footprint no larger than the existing one. Tom listened to our brief and came up with a number of solutions. He expertly steered the project through a relatively tricky planning stage drawing on his significant experience and understanding of the perils and potential pitfalls thus securing our planning consent without the need for significant changes.

He then guided us through the initial contract negotiations with the builder whilst being ever mindful of the limitations of our budget. Throughout this process his advice was always pertinent and well judged. Tom was also engaged as the contract manager and again his patience, ability to see the project overall and established relationships with suppliers ensured that the project ran both to budget and time. Generous with his ideas, suggestions, time and patience, the finished project has delivered exactly what we had hoped and we would not hesitate to recommend him.
