We chose JCA to plan our extension because they were very approachable and helpful from the start. They listened to what we wanted and gave us different options to consider and great drawings to bring it to life. Jonathan has assisted us and managed all the Planning and Statutory issues that potentially stood in our way and liaised with all the authorities required for us to get the answers needed to progress the work. His idea to have a cantilever roof solved issues and made the extension come together as one.
Jonathan has stayed involved throughout the build. He takes great care in his work and clients. Jonathan recommended builders to us, one of whom we chose to do the building work for us. Jonathan has a great relationship with our builder which for us took the stress out of a big project. We would 100 % recommend JCA to others.
JCA were a pleasure to work with and made exciting, creative proposals that we could never have imagined ourselves. Jonathan was very patient as we considered all of the options and we are thrilled with the result. JCA’s extensive network of local building contacts was invaluable when it came to finding a builder and we were delighted with their recommendation. Thanks to JCA our home is now a beautiful space which works perfectly for us.
Working with Jonathan has made the whole process very easy. We were slightly daunted by the prospect of taking on an extension, but right from the start, we found Jonathan very easy to work with. He was happy to spend time finding out about our aspirations and then came back to us with some carefully thought through options, helping guide us to the final design. He helped us through the process of planning permission, challenging the Authorities when he felt the final design was being compromised by their suggestions. However, what really helped was Jonathan’s existing contacts with builders. Without this, we would have struggled to know who to approach, but knowing we were negotiating with builders Jonathan was familiar with, was hugely reassuring. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others.
I really value the professionalism and creativity of JCA. Throughout the whole design and build process I always felt that I could discuss any concerns or ideas with people who are as passionate about design and quality as I am. Not only have I felt that I have been consulted and involved throughout, I have also very much enjoyed seeing JCA ideas develop. The transformation of my tiny, dark off shot kitchen into a truly remarkable light, airy and gorgeous space is absolutely stunning.
Working with Jonathan on our building conversion project has been a pleasure. From the initial meeting to completion, Jonathan has helped ensure that we got exactly what we wanted with his expert insight and gentle guidance. Most importantly, he encouraged us to consider some things that were very different and the result is so much better than our original vision. To say we are pleased with the outcome is an understatement, we definitely over-achieved with Jonathan’s involvement.
Jonathan really helped us demystify the process of having our kitchen extended after spending years debating various options. He came up with 3 options which were visualised well, had expert knowledge of the whole process and put us in touch with a competitively-priced builder he had previously worked with. His solution far exceeded what we were able to imagine ourselves and we were overjoyed with the result!
From the outset, JCA were a pleasure to work with and their obvious experience and knowledge in the field was invaluable in guiding me through the planning and design stages, seeing as this is my first time going through the process. They brought a lot of fresh ideas to the project which I’d not considered previously and after several iterations of meetings and discussions, drew up detailed plans to a high standard then took care of navigating all the planning red-tape with the council. Always punctual, professional and delivering on-time as promised, JCA communicated very well and always made themselves available to clarify any issues I may have had.
It was also very evident that JCA have accumulated a vast array of contacts in the building industry, which they were happy to share and this was a great help when it came to choosing structural engineers and builders and pricing up quotes. I can’t recommend Jonathan Clements Architects highly enough and will definitely use them again if I need to plan any more works in the future.
Jonathan Clements Architects have been incredibly helpful and professional from the outset with our project. They have provided sound advice on all aspects of our house extension and completed the design and drawings to a high standard. Since JCA work closely with local builders they were able to assist with obtaining construction costs and assist with selecting a suitable builder. The project is now due to go ahead this summer, on time and on budget. I would highly recommend appointing JCA to anyone!
JCA did a great job for us and we were very pleased with all aspects of the work. Jonathan is friendly and easy to talk to, which aids the design process. Jonathan gave us all the time we needed and came back to see us to talk about the initial plans and make some amendments. Jonathan was knowledgeable about the practical considerations of the build process and was able to advise about what was possible based on his previous experience. The plans were ready within the agreed timescales; the plans were subsequently submitted and approved for planning permission. Joanthan managed the application process and updates to the plans for conditions. We would definitely recommend JCA!
JCA have been extremely helpful and accommodating in the job we hired him to do. We initially wanted a loft conversion but after listening to Jonathan’s advice & speaking to a builder we realised a two storey side extension would be more suitable. The plans that JCA drew up were fantastic & done quickly and efficiently. Someone was always available to take our calls and talk us through what was happening & what we needed to expect. We found their advice invaluable and their fee, very competitive. We cannot recommend Jonathan Clements Architects highly enough.
