The service we received from Daking Designs has been excellent, from initial advice right through to receiving approval, couldn't ask for anymore

I would just like to say how nice to have an Agent such as yourself who submits quality plans - and deals with amendments so quickly - It really makes our life in Building Control so much easier.

Ipswich Borough Council

Stewart has been incredible throughout. From the very first meeting, he has been attentive, responsive and has delivered everything he promised, within the timescales agreed.His design satisfied every objective we set, and he was able to suggest improvements and additions which we had not foreseen.The drawings produced for us were very clear, but detailed - so much so that several builders quoting for the work paid compliments to the plans.Stewart managed the whole planning process from start to finish, liaising with the planning authority on our behalf, chasing them where appropriate and keeping us informed of progress throughout. He has responded to any questions we’ve had almost immediately, and made us feel like our project had his full attention.His pricing structure is transparent and very competitive. We cannot recommend Daking Designs highly enough. Thank you

I can thoroughly recommend Stewart Wells at Daking Designs. He set the whole process out clearly and communication was prompt and helpful. We had never been through this process before and Stewart made it easy and stress free.The drawings he produced showed he understood what we wanted to create and how we wanted our home to feel. Stewart is flexible with his time and meetings which is great when you both work fulltime.We were very happy with his service and would definitely recommend him to our friends and family.

We can't praise Stewart enough. Once contacted, Stewart made himself available to come to our property for chat about our design needs. It didn't take us long to decide that we wanted him to carry out our designs and he came back around to take full dimensions just before we went on our summer holidays. Whilst we were away, Stewart completed the design and we were able to agree by email and get the whole thing submitted whilst away! Stewart always kept us updated with regards communicating with the planning office and we soon learnt that we would have to make some modifications due to the distance from a neighbouring property. Once we agreed a compromise, Stewart turned over the new design within 24 hours and this was re-submitted. The planning was approved and we then instructed Stewart to go ahead with Building Control drawings which again were issued without any fuss nor delay. The drawings were subsequently passed subject to calculations required for structural beams/lintels. Again, Stewart was able to provide a contact of a structural engineer who was reasonable in terms of cost. Everything was finally signed off without any difficulties arising. We have already recommended Stewart a friend and would continue to do so for anyone needing similar work in the future.
