Mr Russell sustained serious injuries following a road traffic accident. Longdens assisted Mr Russell in finding a property which could be suitably adapted to meet his needs. Following the identification of a bungalow, plans were prepared and once agreed the design team at Longdens prepared all the necessary documentation for the Planning Application.
The property was located in a Conservation Area which meant we were restricted on the amount the property could be extended by. However, we were able to negotiate with the Local Authority and agree on a scheme which met both the client’s requirements and also the Council.

Following approval, the technical drawings were prepared along with a Specification of Works. Prices were then obtained from a selection of Building Contractors. A builder was then appointed and works commenced on site. Longdens monitored the works throughout the duration of the project and assessed all the builders’ valuations. We also provided advice and guidance on changes the client wished to make to the design throughout the project.
We used Longdens to produce the plans for our home extension. We found them extremely efficient throughout the whole process. From start to finish we were kept regularly updated and well informed. Nothing was too much trouble and the costs were excellent value for money. We would highly recommend Longdens and would certainly use them again.
Longdens came up with a fantastic design which included very effect solutions to our space issues. The design was considerate to our budget and allowed us to undertake the work in separate stages over a period of time. The different materials and construction methods assisted with the budget but also improved the design of the extension. Thank you for all your help and we look forward to all the works being complete. Hope you can make the house warming.
Longdens assisted our firm with designs for the conversion of a commercial property into residential accommodation. I found their approach to be innovative, architecturally sympathetic and highly professional. I would be more than happy to recommend Longdens to any of our clients in the future.
