Alistair at Acre took on all the planning and execution of the major refurbishment and additions at my family home and worked tirelessly to ensure the house was transformed into the modern attractive home it is today. I always knew I could rely on him, he provided excellent value for money and I warmly recommend him.
We would like to thank Alistair and his team for providing us with plans for our kitchen extension. We found Alistair very professional and helpful listening to what we wanted and giving us some great ideas in return, we would not hesitate to recommend them.
We are extremely happy with our ultimate design and we are very excited for our building work to start. Alistair and his team were very professional throughout.
Really happy with the service provided by Acre Design - finished build is beautiful.
We considered an extension to our property, but had little idea how to proceed. We selected Acre Design from positive reviews posted and have not been disappointed. Help and advice was always available and the team led us through the process in a professional and timely manner. We have no hesitation in recommending them!
After trouble with our first architect, Acre stepped in and had our approvals sorted in no time. He was always on the end of the phone and kept us informed about how things were progressing. Would definitely recommend.
We are first time buyers and we were looking for someone to help us design an extension on our home. From the outset, Acre stood out to us as a professional, welcoming service and we were both impressed by their informative response upon requesting an initial consultation. Throughout the consultation, we felt Acre gave us honest, transparent advice and they were able to creatively help us realise our vision. We were fully informed about their pricing plan and the stages of planning, which we admit we struggled with before approaching Acre. When we received our plans, it was clear that Acre is a business that takes pride in their design service and we were offered a series of meetings to talk through our design. We were over the moon with the final drawings and could not thank Acre enough. We feel that Acre went above and beyond to guide us through the planning process, from applying for planning permission, issuing a Party Wall notice and organising a structural engineer. Acre were responsive to all our questions and queries and communicated thoroughly throughout the process. We felt we could approach them with anything concerns about the plans. We would highly recommend Acre to anyone who is considering designing or planning projects. Thank you Acre!
We have found Acre Design to provide friendly efficient and quality service whom have been focused on our needs as clients. They have progressed a successful application for planning permission for an extension to our home and navigated us through the challenges this can bring. I would recommend them to all. Many thanks
We were very happy with the service provided by Alistair of Acre Designs. We received a quick response to our request for planning help. Alistair knows his subject and as a client we were confident that we would get a well thought out design. We would have no reservations about recommending his work.
Nothing but positive things to say about Alistair, Laura and the team. Nice design, accommodated what we wanted and the drawings were great. They directed us to the next steps and put us in touch with some others great services. Building starts next week!
Called for a design quote after recommended by a local builder, came back with a quote quickly and engaged them for the work. Met the agreed timescales for the completion of the design and no issues, very professional outfit and happy with the work.
We've just completed our Needs + Options Review with Alistair from Acre Design and we're delighted - comprehensive, creative and collaborative! (Got to get a bit of alliteration in there)... Would definitely recommend doing the Needs + Options Review - we've changed our plans for our house refurb from discussing the results.
We couldn't be happier with the service we've received from Acre Design, the process was made so easy for us from the initial concept drawings through to planning and the build. Alistair was in communication with us all the way through keeping us informed on how things were progressing. Excellent work, thank you.
Alistair has managed to build a firm that focuses on excellence. We were planning an extension recently and it would have been easy for Alistair to push his ideas on to us but instead he actually listened to what we wanted and ensured his ideas complimented our own.
Alistair at ACRE was great, polite, on time, and always on the end of the phone. He took our initial idea, made it buildable, within our budget and our approvals went straight through.
I would highly recommend Acre Design. I have been delighted with the professionalism of the team but also their warm and friendly approach when designing the extension to my kitchen / diner. Acre Design also recommended the building firm I used and they were also highly professional with a great work ethic.
Could not recommend this company enough. Very reasonable price for a high level service from start to finish. We love our new home, it has exceeded all of our expectations. 100% recommend.
Excellent service, great design and extremely competitively priced. Will definitely use again and recommend.
We chose Acre design from recommendations, to draw the plans for a second floor conversion from outside open space into an additional room on our property. Quality service and helpful with every step of the design and planning application. Faultless in the way they handled the project even during Covid-19 times.
