From a developers perspective we like the multi disciplinary approach that RLH undertake, bringing together planning expertise with the working drawings, SAP and Code Assessments, means that aside from the Engineer, we have one point of contact. The use of 3D modelling has also helped us understand the buildability issues we are likely to encounter ahead of time, thus saving time and money. To that end I would not hesitate in recommending RLH.

Dear Matt, I’ve been meaning to write for weeks to thank you for your efforts at Fagwr. The extension, having lived in it for a couple of weeks has transformed that place. From a cosy but dark Pembrokeshire cottage you have managed to achieve exactly what we wanted, a place to enjoy the view whilst not standing in a tempest, along with more accommodation and facilities to house growing families. I have always felt it was a very special place and was reluctant to do anything that would lose the character of the building just for my decadent pleasure of sitting on a window seat, beer in hand, at sunset, but from every angle the design and the quality of building suits the site and it all looks, in my view, perfectly in keeping, a natural extension to the original. It also creates a garden in front and strangely connects the barn to the house as well. I often think of the poor bugger who built it and struggled to make a living off 20 acres of rock up there, he didn’t put in windows because he’d had enough of being outside at the end of the day and was desperately trying to keep the weather out and warmth in. He wouldn’t know himself now in underfloor heated luxury but I’d hope he’d appreciate the effort that you, Nick, Huw and I have put into looking after it and bringing it up to date. I’m rambling now but thanks, we love it!!! Martin Bankes

Seal Cottage, Aberfforest

The project involved converting a small stable into a single bedroom cottage for holiday letting. Rob and Nick at RLH guided us all the way through the process: conceptual design; building regulations approval; tendering; and project management. Communication was always excellent, and during the build it was reassuring to know that Nick was on top of all the details, as we were four hours drive away. The project came in on time and within budget. We are delighted with the end result, as are our guests. We have no hesitation in recommending RLH.

From an initial Design Brief RLH surveyed the original buildings and site, prepared detailed drawings and specifications, successfully managed the process of gaining Planning and Building Regulations approval and provided a detailed Bill of Quantities. The project included demolition, renovation and new build work and the result was a beautiful new cottage and other buildings in the heart of St Davids. We have no hesitation in highly recommending RLH.

From our very first meeting with Rob and Nick, we felt that we were in good hands. A warm friendly reception, good listeners, readily available, very positive attitude.  When it came to developing plans, they were creative and practical and managed to take our basic ideas and improve them such that the finished product was better than we had imagined.  They are also able to marry the aesthetic and the efficient – what they design doesn’t just look good … it works!  Since we lived elsewhere at the time, we asked them to manage the project from A-Z and they did an excellent job, from getting planning permission, to organising the builders (excellent choice of builders), to seeing the project through to Building Controls acceptance.  All we had to do was move in.  The full project took a bit longer than originally announced, but that was mostly to do with keeping the quality high.  All in all, a great job !  Thanks, guys !

From the outset the RLH team understood our requirements; living in military accommodation, in one form or another over the last 26 years, we know exactly what we want in our ‘forever house’; and perhaps, more importantly, what we don’t want!. RLH have produced an outstanding design and throughout their advice, comment and support have been spot on. A truly professional and personable approach, we could not have wanted anything better; they are passionate to ensure they deliver what we want – and they will. We cannot recommend them any higher – thank you.

Cefn Coed, Scleddau

The process of obtaining Planning Approvals, building regulation approvals and producing working drawings required for tendering schemes for new developments has become increasingly complex in recent years. The main lead in that process is always the Principal Designer. Rob, Matt and Nick at RLH have proved themselves time after time in successfully delivering the full design package and solutions for very many of our housing schemes. Professionally, confidently and competently coordinating our design team of specialist consultants to delivering award winning schemes. Their proactive approach and work ethos to finding solutions makes them a pleasure to work with.
