Testimonials

As a builder I found the service that Distinct Designs gave offered me excellent value for money, the service was prompt and they worked with me throughout the process, enabling me to deliver the project on time and within budget. I will be using Distinct Designs again for my future developments. JJ Sandberg, Congham.

After some careful research we chose Distinct Designs to design and oversee the refurbishment of our house including the building of a two storey extension. It was a complicated and technical job involving exterior insulation and a new roof as well as the large extension. Distinct Designs were always helpful and professional and assisted us well beyond the limits of the job in making sure we found the right people to get our home finished. Distinct Designs offer a really first class service for a very reasonable price and are small enough to ensure that their personal, tailored service is always a priority. Overall we would highly recommend Distinct Designs. D. McMahon, Kings Lynn.

I am writing to say thank you for the excellent architectural services you have recently provided us with. We very much appreciate your ideas and design input as well as the speed at which you work. The standard of service we received was above and beyond the call of duty as you had to change the plans for us and resubmit to the council for planning permission as our ideas evolved during the project. You also very efficiently dealt with on-site issues which arose during the build between the builder, kitchen designer and yourself for which we are very grateful. We will be recommending Distinct Designs to anyone who needs to build, restore or extend. A. Piggott, Wimbotsham.

Just a quick note to thank you for all your help with the proposed planning process. True to form, the LPA was a total nightmare; defying any inclination to be rational. Remaining cool, calm and collected in the face of the absurd helped to ensure that matters did not decline as far as they could have otherwise have done! I am very grateful for your wise and professional assistance. P. Oddey, Shouldham Thorpe.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to apologise for questioning the position of our back door on our project. If you remember, I moaned as you had drawn it under a steel beam? Turns out you were right! We marked it out the other day and its position under the beam is perfect and if I had moved it either way it would look very much out of place. Just thought you might like the feedback as I know how most of the time people just moan and don't give any thanks! M. Cholerton, Pidley.

The work carried out by Distinct Designs was done sympathetically on my 400 year old property. We are pleased with the professionalism and attention to the whole project. J. Lawton, Great Massingham.

I am writing this testimonial as a resident of Hunstanton rather than as a client. Perhaps this has more weight in some way because my testimonial is about the significant and, dare I say, inspiring difference distinct DESIGNS has made to a truly un-noteworthy house running along Clifftop Road in Hunstanton. Some time ago, during a 121, distinct DESIGNS showed me the drawings that their Chartered Practice had prepared for the expansion of one of the cliff top homes. I have to say I found the way in which all of their projects are designed and displayed on computer screens, to be completely fascinating. The level of detail was beyond anything I could imagine but it was clear that anyone embarking on a building project of any size should only relay on the services of highly trained and skilled Architects such as distinct DESIGNS.
However, I was totally unprepared for the actual outcome of the design for the cliff top house. Hot only did I make a point of driving past every couple of weeks to see the hive of activity, the project also became a local favourite. I repeatedly saw other drivers slowing down as they passed, to get a glimpse of what was emerging. The other day I drove past on my way through town, and was delighted to see a large but perfectly proportional home on a site which barley got noticed before. The wide but protected balcony, the double height central window and the maximum use of plot made me want to say "I know who designed that!"
Frankly, this project has enhanced the visual appearance of one home in particular and I am sure the owners will have equally been well served in terms of the layout inside of the house. So, from one Hunstanton resident - and I am sure many others - thanks to distinct DESIGNS for showing owners of dismal square box homes that, with the right architectural practice on their project, something truly special can be made. The transformation is outstanding. Maxine Thorne, Business Buddy UK.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the plans that you prepared for The Arts Centre, King's Lynn. The building takes the form of an extremely old split level three storey listed building with features that are inherent with buildings of that age. Having personally carried out many inspections of the building, I still found myself confused in certain areas with all the different occupancies and changes of levels with the limited plans that were available. Taking into account the complicated structure, differing floor levels and differing ground levels, you produced what can only be described as an excellent set of plans, extremely accurate and with all the fire precaution related items clearly marked on as requested.
West Norfolk District Council, the carers of the property, have now taken on your plans and I know are extremely pleased with the finished article. To conclude, you must be congratulated on producing such an excellent set of details plans on such a complicated building. I would never have any reservations in recommending you for any type design/plan drawing services. John Blake, JKB Fire Risk Assessors Ltd.
