Having been through several project cycles with RLH, we really appreciate the additional effort they put into each phase. From inception and early in the planning process through to post completion and sales, the approach to dealing with any issues that arise, has led to the development of an excellent working relationship!
Our Melyn Close redevelopment was the first project that we partnered with with RLH. From feasibility and concept stage and early in the planning process, through construction phase, the level of service has been second to none and their approach to dealing with any issues that arise, has led to the development of an excellent working relationship.
Matt and Nick worked tirelessly to ensure all the necessary requirements were met and supported us through the new Welsh Government Technical Scrutiny Process.
RLH were an absolute pleasure to work with and a breath of fresh air with regards to their design style and superb integration into a team of consultants, to deliver a fantastic end result.
We look forward to hopefully working with RLH again in the future!
Development Manager, Tai Tarian Ltd.
We have a great working relationship with the team at RLH, and have a like minded approach to tackling projects. At concept stage we believe in investing the time to ensure we develop deliverable concept masterplans with due consideration for site constraints such as topography, ecology and other site specific items. RLH’s capability to model in 3D has proved to be hugely beneficial to us in appraising sites and compliments the way we work – directly delivering the infrastructure work. At technical design stage we receive detailed, buildable solutions to ensure the built process is as efficient as possible. Above all we find the whole team to be responsive and easy to work with. We look forward to a long term working relationship with RLH and delivery of a number of schemes together in West Wales.

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.
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 David's. 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!
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.
Mr Gareth Thomas
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.
