We were struggling to get planning permission on an apartment development complex and we were advised to contact Syed. After viewing our plans, he immediately highlighted the shortcomings in our proposal and rectified the proposal. Having Syed negotiate on our behalf with the council was immensely helpful as he managed to secure the planning permission with Section 106 provisions in place.
We have worked with Syed for several years on various high quality apartment projects in and around London. I have always found them to be a very professional outfit, giving a good service, ON TIME, and at a reasonable cost..
Following a disappointing experience with another architect, we met on-site with Syed to discuss the issues and lay out our requirements for the refurbishment and extension of our Victorian house. We were immediately impressed with the range of ideas he suggested and two weeks later were completely stunned by the 3D sketches of a totally transformed house that was totally wow! We engaged LDNPlans.com to formalise the designs, seek planning consent, prepare the detailed drawings to gain building control approval and liaise with our builder during during the extensive works. 9 months later we have a stunning property that we are absolutely delighted .
It only took one meeting to realize that Syed’s capacity and talent far exceeded the 4 other architects I had interviewed. I have been continually impressed by his attention to detail, follow through and ability to balance client desire with incredible design. Syed has the unusual ability to balance high class design with real world application. He also brings his extensive construction background to every project. During construction I realized that those skills were invaluable in turning design into reality. Specifically, Syed held the project to a high standard and made sure the design vision was properly implemented. Syed and hir team at Ldnplans get my highest recommendation.".
We used Ldnplans to deal with a Party Wall Agreement and were very pleased. Syed clearly knows his stuff and we felt very confident in his handling of the matter. He dealt with it all the very efficiently, responding quickly to any enquiries and keeping us fully informed about how it was progressing. He provided straightforward explanations to any queries we had. We would definitely use him again and would recommend him to other businesses or individuals..
Ldnplans has been an integral part of our team approach in creating good design, often meeting difficult time schedules and working with us to bring the costs in line with our budgets in order to make our pro forma work. This attribute is not typical of most architectural firms. You and your firm go above and beyond the call of duty in examining every aspect of each project to meet the quality, cost and schedule. The success we’ve had working together on all of our various projects ensures that we will continue our long term relationship with Ldnplans well into the future. Your willingness to work with me and my staff in providing creative ideas in an open forum is rewarding, and egos do not create obstacles where often it does with other creative firms like yours
We worked with Ldnplans for all phases of the gut renovation of our London apartment and were extraordinarily satisfied. Syed and his group were a pleasure to work with and produced an optimal result. They are responsive at all times, deep thinkers, able to process multiple points of feedback, and lead the project to a successful completion. Syed spent the necessary time to fully understand our space needs and in relation to the possibilities of the apartment layout. He then set forth a number of proposed schemes that optimized our space and were innovative and creative. He was able to work within the constraints of the building and other aspects uncovered along the way. Paul’s personality is calm, controlled, and professional and with that, he is able to work through any situation. With the full range of design services Paul’s firm offers, our project was handled seamlessly from every aspect. In addition, Paul’s group is very advanced in using technology applications for the design work, which makes everything more efficient. Syed is very involved throughout the process, never leaving detail's unaddressed. We highly recommend Ldnplans and will use them again for future project.
Syed and his team at Ldnplans were instrumental in the success of our large-scale apartment renovation project. Throughout, Syed demonstrated an ability to listen patiently, incorporate our ideas, and provide thoughtful feedback in ways that made the complexity of the decisions understandable. Ldnplans’s attention to detail was clear from the beginning of the project through to the end, and saved us time, money and avoidable problems. Most important, we love the result! We would recommend Ldnplans wholeheartedly..
It has been my pleasure to work with Ldnplans on two major development projects. Syed is an extremely talented architect who is meticulous about his work to the finest detail. Syed's talent does not only lie in technical areas. He is an excellent communicator who excels at working with community organizations and design teams.
Having been a Facilities Manager for eighteen plus years, I have had the opportunity to experience relationships with numerous architectural and engineering firms. Of these firms, my professional experience with Syed has been the most positive whether it be a major multi-million pound building and renovation project or a small repair or construction project. Syed will provide you with the personal service and experience that is hard to find in today’s fast past world. Syed provides a personal interest and continues to provide assistance in dealing with any building issues long after projects have been completed.
LDNPlans has completed several projects with our design firm that far exceeded our expectations. They are very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and creative professionals who can comprehend the design intent of a given project and generously contributes their expertise and talent toward realizing this goal. Ldnplans is a good collaborator and a valuable asset to any design team.
My Husband and I have been building multiple homes for the past 25 years. Working with Ldnplans.com has been our best experience. I don’t think that many clients would miss their builders so soon after completion. Should we start another project, Syed would be our first call, and Ldnplans our only recommendation.”
Ldnplans has overseen the construction of several projects in which my firm has served as architect, including the renovation of my own home. With Ldnplans as GC, I feel like I am in partnership with a builder who both appreciates and supports the design goals, but is always looking to execute the work in the most optimal way, bringing their expertise and experience to bear. The Ldnplans team, from Syed's leadership at the top, to the hands-on project managers and committed crew, consists of problem-solvers who anticipate issues in the field before they arise. While they may not be among the low bidders, the added value they bring to a project, and service they bring to a client, will more than pay for itself in the long run
We’ve worked on five projects together, starting with resort work and now hi-end homes. In every case, Ldnplans met our budget and finished the job on time — that’s unusual for an architect.
Ldnplans has no weaknesses; we never have to augment their work, as we do with some other architects. Their drawings are very detailed and complete. It makes everyone else’s jobs easier
