Submission of pre planning application

“Advice was sought for the conversion of a balcony from existing railings to a glass/ steel structure. Liz Galloway visited the property at very short notice; proposed that a pre planning application would be prudent, prior to going ahead with full planning permission. The application was speedily, professionally and very courteously put together at a very reasonable cost. Liz Galloway was always available for phone conversations, follow up emails and advice. She clearly has a sound and knowledgeable relationship with Planning officials, and is very familiar with the local environment. The pre planning was successful, and I have no hesitation in recommending Caldotec wholeheartedly. Extremely competent professionals, and a pleasure to deal with.”

Refurbishment of an old building to become ground floor office accommodation and first floor flat

“I found the whole of the team at Caldotec to be very professional at all times. Their communication is excellent – constantly updating and keeping me informed of items within the project. I had weekly catch-up meetings onsite which were very useful with all actions raised being dealt with very quickly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Caldotec.”

Numerous renovation projects at The Lamb at Angmering. Grade 2 Listed, built 1775.

“We have had numerous projects to renovate The Lamb at Angmering, which was in a dreadful condition when purchased from Punch Taverns in September 2011. Liz Galloway has been a godsend to us. We have had renovation projects on the ground, first and second floors, leading to at least 8 applications to renovate. The last, to build onto our outside courtyard at the rear of our property which she successfully negotiated for us. Her knowledge, her negotiating skills and her advice have all been outstanding and we have come to trust her judgement on all of the projects we have undertaken. A first class organisation and staff who know all of the minefields before you tread on them. Highly recommended.”

Architectural Services

2 bedroom 2 bathroom loft extension plus new layout to ground floor

“We found both Mrs Galloway and Mr McCourty very user friendly. We had our own ideas and they listened and contributed superb suggestions. The plans were easy to understand and any alterations handled well. We have ended up with a superb loft conversion that has turned out very ordinary bungalow into a spacious and modern building and certainly has the WOW factor. We couldn’t be more pleased.”

Single storey extension and reconfiguration and modernisation

“Caldotec worked with us as our trusted advisor through design, planning and project managing the works at our property over an eight month period. They took our thoughts for the changes to the existing interior and the extension and gave us some real innovative options which have given us a property that we adore. They handled all aspects of the planning which was seamless and more importantly for us painless. The project management was excellent with detailed project planning, agreed and met timescales and regular site meetings for us to attend and give input. The whole experience was professional and enjoyable and it continues as they have made several follow up calls to ensure we are still happy with the completed works.”

Acquiring Planning Consent and Design

“Extremely efficient and professional.”

Permitted development

“Design and submit permitted development for single story rear extension. Very helpful with all aspects of the process, providing me with clear and concise plans, which I was very pleased with. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, professional, personal service.”

Single story extension plans

“From start to finish the service given by Caldotec was great. We were kept fully informed of what was happening at each of the phases but they took on all of the effort of getting the required building permissions. Russell and Joao spent a lot of time with us and it is clear that they really understood what we wanted and needed.”

Ground floor extension and alterations around the house

“From beginning they were efficient and accurate. Plans were drawn up and explained and met our requirements. Management side was excellent and went with no major issues. Everything was scrutinised by them and all liaison with builder was very good. Very happy with everything and would recommend them to others.”

Creating plans, gaining planning permission and building regs for an extension

“Russell ensured that what was once just an idea became a reality. His ideas and advice has resulted in a design for an extension which is sympathetic to an Edwardian house and that will completely transform a dark and under utilised space. A happy client who would recommend Caldotec for similar projects.”

Architectural drawings and project management for a loft conversion

“We are delighted to have used Caldotec for both architectural designs and overall project management for our loft conversion, bedroom and bathroom refurbishment. It’s one thing to be highly professional, which they were, but it’s a bonus for the company to also be staffed by a great bunch of people. Highly recommended. A conversion like this is very disruptive and can be stressful, yet working with Emma, it was neither of those things.”
