BELOW ARE JUST A SMALL SELECTION OF COMMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM CLIENTS
We chose Jonathon to architect and project manage our two-storey extension with open plan kitchen living area. This included building an additional master bedroom, bathroom, and new downstairs kitchen, utility room, living and dining space. Out of all the architects we met, he was head and shoulders above the rest in terms of dynamism, ideas, energy and professionalism. Jonathon has the ability to move things forward quickly from your initial ideas.
Within a couple of days of asking him to help us, he had hand delivered initial ideas and prices. Jonathon ensured that things ran smoothly through getting planning permission and builder selection. His attention to detail in the requirements documents meant we had a solid written contract in place with our builders. This was worth its weight in gold as it avoided any discrepancies or misunderstandings. Our project went on to be delivered under budget and within the agreed timescales.
Although Jonathan’s fees were slightly higher than other architects, we have since calculated our project would have cost us significantly more without him. He saved us considerably by noticing errors before they became issues, preventing any builder disputes and giving us discounts with known suppliers. In the words of my husband, Jonathon epitomises the phrase ”You get what you pay for”.
Thanks to him, our build was stress free and the transformation to our house has been life-changing.
Engaged Jonathon’s services to design, tender and manage our house extension. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his service. All trades knew what to do and when to be there, with any issues handled by Jonathon during and after the build.
We had considered managing the project ourselves; glad we didn’t, as Jonathon took away the hassle and saved us more money than his fees.

Jonathon held our hand from our first tentative enquiries about plot purchase to the completion of our wonderful new home. Nothing was ever too much trouble. He responds to queries with alacrity, quietly irons out any problems and is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of design and construction. We could never have managed our project without him and cannot recommend him highly enough.

Jonathon designed and project managed substantial improvement works to our Grade 2 listed property. It was a pleasure to work with a professional who understood the client’s needs and then showed real ownership in delivering the finished works.

I have known Jonathon Hartley and used his services over many years. He is always keen to help and has dealt with me in a friendly and efficient way.He has always responded promptly to my phone calls, correspondence and emails and has got projects moving and completed in a very professional way.
I could not have completed the work he has done for me without his expertise, knowledge and contacts.
I have no hesitation in recommending Jonathon to others.
