We appointed squiresandbrown to produce designs for our development project – an extension and significant internal remodelling of a Victorian semi-detached house in Wilmslow. We also required new vehicular access to the plot. The practice designed a light, bright contemporary ground floor extension and redesigned the first floor to enable us to gain an additional bedroom and ensuite. They turned drawings round quickly and were responsive to requests for design changes. There were some complications with the planners who changed their mind about works allowed under the new permitted development rules. However, squiresandbrown quickly submitted a planning application maintained a dialogue with the planners which meant that the project was ultimately approved.

We were delighted with the scheme squiresandbrown produced and will be approaching the practice again for our next development project.

We have been delighted with the professionalism, speed and skills of all members of staff at squiresandbrown. We have successfully extended a 1970s four bedroom property with leaking flat roof garage and leaking flat roof sunroom into a spacious five bedroom plus office, spacious family home with vaulted ceilings and unusual hip roof that mirrors the gable of the original property.

As we were on a limited budget with a very run down property and grand ideas for an oak-framed entrance porch and sunroom, we project managed the build mostly ourselves with lots of help from squiresandbrown.

squiresandbrown speedily took us through the building regulations process and we were kept updated throughout the project. My plans were extremely detailed and gave me the specification I needed for insulation etc in various parts of our house. The plans have been my Bible and all tradespeople and builders that have referred to them have been impressed with how clear the drawings are.

We made one change early in the build which meant I had to get the plans updated and approved again by building control. My builder was on site waiting for the new information and within 48 hours not only had the drawings been updated but we had authorisation from building control for our changes. Mark Axon of squiresandbrown has had too many phone calls from me which have always been urgent on all matters including underfloor heating, insulation, drains, structural engineer’s drawings and he has always helped me in a friendly, professional and speedy manner.

I have loved our building project. Due to our limited budget we are slowly and lovingly completing but it has been a very worthwhile process.

We would like to thank you and everyone at squiresandbrown for all your input and support in our building project. Having never done anything on such a large scale before, we feel that one of our best decisions was to involve squiresandbrown not just in the design, but also in the project management of our building work.

We feel that everything we asked for in the design of our house, was listened to and taken into consideration. The reconfiguration of the layout incorporates all our requests (something which we initially didn't think possible). Externally the design is sympathetic to the structure and style of the existing building and we were particularly impressed with the way the existing asymmetrical gable was echoed in the extension.

Having decided to ask squiresandbrown to set up a JCT contract and to project manage the build, we felt confident at all times that the work was being monitored and our best interests cared for. We appreciate all the professional support, advice (and at times reassurance!) we were given over a period which could have been very stressful. Everyone we had contact with at the office was very approachable and happy to give us their time.

We would certainly (and have already) recommend squiresandbrown, to anyone considering having similar work done.

- John and Heather Richardson, Knutsford

We appointed squiresandbrown having identified a number of possible architects. We were impressed by their ideas, enthusiasm, professionalism and responsiveness. These qualities have also come through during their work for us and would recommend them in the future.

- Dale Thorpe, Mottram

We are delighted with the service we have received from Emma and Louise. They completed our Building regulation drawings on time, even though we had given them a tight deadline. They consistently responded to our queries quickly and thoroughly. They took time to discuss and redesign several issues until we were satisfied with the solution.
