‘Tom has worked for us on our barn conversion project since 2005. He took over from a previous architect that we had to lay off because we were not happy with the direction of travel of the project at that time. Tom has successfully steered our project through to successful completion of the design, negotiating with national parks & building regulations for the changes we required, the tendering process, found an affordable way forward when we were about to quit the project because of costs; appointment of the best builders in Pembrokeshire.
Tom works collaboratively, nothing is too much trouble and he is professional at all times. He has the ability to create and work as part of a team, and in so doing achieves a good team spirit and unity of purpose to work for the best of the project and client.
Tom focuses on achieving a quality end product rather than monetary gain because he believes that this approach markets itself and achieves a win–win for all. Tom has gone the extra mile in steering us towards resolution through several difficult problems throughout the course of the project.
In summary we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Tom, as a consummate professional and a complete gentleman and would definitely employ him again.’
