Excellent ideas

"I have used Douglas John & Partners Ltd twice and found them to be great for coming up with excellent ideas, advice, plans and working with them to get to a final solution. They are the experts in getting the final planning form applications. Hence we get the required permission in first attempt. It makes the whole process stress-free and cost-effective. Highly recommended." 
- CM, Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Helpful and creative advice

"Having made a number of enquiries with various architectural practices, we decided that the services provided by Douglas John & Partners Ltd suited our needs the best. Philip was helpful and creative with his advice. Furthermore, he was focused on delivering what we wanted for the final design and was happy to work with us to make sure we got it right. Douglas John & Partners Ltd also offered flexibility in the range of services available i.e not just delivering the design but also obtaining all the local authority approvals. They handled all the contract management required for the builders too. Highly recommended!"

Successful resolution of problems

"We commissioned Douglas John & Partners Ltd when we were considering a double storey extension to the side of our detached house. Philip Curtis was very helpful and proposed a number of solutions. Once the design and layout were agreed, we were given a list of builders and a breakdown of all costs (as per my request) in a timely manner. During the building process, Philip was able to address a neighbour's concerns and managed the situation, leading to a successful resolution. Philip was helpful throughout all our dealings with him. I have since recommended Philip to friends who have then commissioned his services. I would happily use Douglas John & Partners Ltd again."
- SH, Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Honest about timelines

"We bought a 1960's style bungalow in 2012 with the view to updating the whole property, something we had never done before. We interviewed several local architectural firms and decided on Douglas John & Partners Ltd after two visits from Philip Curtis who, we thought, best understood what we were trying to achieve. On engaging Philip, he was very honest about timelines, producing drawings on time and guiding us through the planning application process. He also worked on a fixed fee rather than a percentage helping us in our budget. Although they do not provide project management services, Philip was always available at the end of the phone. Once work had begun and his recommended builders took on this role, it was equally easy to work with them. I would not hesitate to recommend Douglas John & Partners Ltd to anyone looking to undertake work on their property."

A reassuring service

"We recently used Douglas John & Partners Ltd to prepare our drawings and layout for our loft conversion. I would highly recommend their expertise and the helpful services they provide. They are a very professional company and would always recommend their reassuring service." 
- IM, Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Helped us select the right builder

"Douglas John & Partners Ltd acted as architectural consultants for a house extension that involved adding 15 feet to the whole of the back of our house and adding an attached games room. Virtually every room was impacted, it was a significant job. Douglas John & Partners Ltd listened and understood our requirements, and we quickly settled upon a design. Liaison with "building regulations" was handled efficiently. Douglas John & Partners Ltd arranged for 3 quotes, from which we selected our preferred builder. Although not a project manager, they were regularly onsite to monitor progress. I was pleased with the service and would use them again." 
- RL, Langton Green, Kent

Very helpful and professional

"We used Douglas John & Partners Ltd when planning the recent renovation of our house in Langton Green. Philip provided excellent advice and service throughout the planning stage, handled all the necessary planning submissions with the council and prepared the tendering documentation for the building contractors. Overall, Philip provided a very helpful and professional service throughout and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else." 
- TOC, Langton Green, Kent

Patient and understanding

"After seeing a couple of Architectural designers we were getting frustrated that we didn't seem to be getting what we wanted from our future house build project. Then we met Philip at Douglas John & Partners Ltd. He was patient, understood what we wanted and came up with several designs to suit different budgets. We went ahead using their plans that went through the planning permission first time and the house build went smoothly, without a hitch. Definitely recommend." 
- PM, Speldhurst, Kent

Recommended an excellent builder

"After several years of attempting to replace an existing single garage, we finally found an architectural firm who not only designed our new double garage, but steered the application through the difficult planning process (there were protected trees involved), recommended an excellent builder, and supervised construction as necessary. The project was completed on time and within our budget. We were delighted with the outcome and have no hesitation in recommending this company." 
- GC and JC, Langton Green, Kent

Helpful design solutions

"Philip helped us with the design of an entrance that would solve part of the problem of lack of storage in the house and the darkness on the landing. Philip worked with us and we managed to make the most of the space. We are very pleased with our new hall, with built in wardrobes and the design of a lantern in the new roof has brought in the light to the downstairs." 
- VW, Edenbridge, Kent

Easy to work with

"My wife and I engaged Philip to advise on, prepare plans for and obtain planning permission for a substantial extension to our house. He achieved all this in about 5 months including his own family holidays and time taken by the local authority. His charge was very reasonable in comparison to another quotation we had obtained and we felt that the design he proposed made very good use of the available area. We found Philip easy to work with and good at keeping appointments punctually. We would use him again. Our contact with him came from a satisfied neighbour."
