I would definitely recommend Acre's Needs and Options Review. Acre, specifically Tommy and Alistair, have been really helpful in bringing our ideas together, making suggestions and enabling us to see the vision we have for our home. Before the needs and options review there were a few aspects of the project we weren't sure about but this process has really helped focused our thoughts, figure out exactly what we want to achieve from this project, and get a better idea of exactly how to achieve it

An incredibly useful process for anyone considering a project. 'Needs and Options Review'Acre offer a flat fee, to give level, wise and impartial advice in a way that was measured to fit us as clients. Highly recommend.

Alistair was very helpful! After an initial client meeting (free of charge) he honestly advised that Acre wasn't the best company to help me with my plans. Instead he provided me with details of others who would be better placed to do so and gave me helpful feedback on my project ideas.

We've had a great experience with Acre Design so far. We engaged the Needs and Option review. Alistair was very helpful talking us through the possibilities within our property to give us the space that we need. They got the 'report' to us exactly when they said they would and answered our questions at the review meeting. We're considering our options but will be looking to move forward with Acre Designs when we do.

Right from the start, at the “needs and options review” which proved incredibly worthwhile, Alistair and his team have provided professional, thorough and imaginative service.Our project has daunted us in many ways but Alistair has always been on hand to allay any concerns we had. He has been incredibly helpful, full of ideas and specialist advice throughout the process.Our extension has now been granted planning permission and building control approval. Thanks to Acre Design this is looking so much better than anything we could possibly have imagined.

If you're in need of architectural advice, look no further. I have just completed the comprehensive, and highly beneficial, 'Needs & Options Review', with Alistair and his team at Acre Design. It was money well spent!Having had other architects out who wouldn't even entertain what I had envisioned, meeting Alistair at the property was like a breath of fresh air! From the get-go, Alistair was attentive to my ideas and his vast knowledge of regulations and planning, having worked in Building Control, coupled with his desire to make them work was commendable.An initial consultation, taking measurements and drawing plans, followed by a meeting to discuss the options, Acre Design have been brilliant, knowledgeable and, importantly, approachable too. They keep you in the driving seat whilst being realistic in what is achievable and will take the seed in your mind for your project, as they did mine, and show you possibilities and options you hadn't thought about.As part of the Needs & Options Review, I was given access to my own personal online 'Mood Board' and this was brilliant. It enabled me to showcase ideas I found to the team and see what the team were thinking of too. Alistair found some wonderful inspiration for my project with materials and construction techniques I hadn't considered.In the long run, it is easy to see why a Needs & Options Review with Acre Design will save you money. Changes to plans and practicalities of your design done at this early stage is way more cost effective against needing to make adjustments when you have full architectural plans drawn up. I won't hesitate to use Alistair and his team again and again. I recommend you call them too.David, King Panda Properties
