architectural drawings

testimonials from our technical drawing clients

Mark did a brilliant job of drawing up plans for our extension, fitting in everything that we asked for and giving us a couple of options. He was incredibly helpful and happy to take our ideas and suggestions, and got us safely through planning and building control with no issues. We would definitely use him again!

(thank you Sam and Lucinda who used us to design a loft conversion and then a few years later we designed a glazed extension for a growing family!) Sam & Lucinda @ 2017-06-28, 09:30

Mark has been very helpful in helping me achieve planning and building control for my new build house. He has listened to what I've required and has been very pleasant to work with. I would recommend MSBC to everyone and will use his services in the future.

(Clare already had Planning Permission via another architect but used us to prepare her Building Regulation application and clear some of the Planning Conditions) Clare @ 2015-06-25, 11:53

Just had Mark to draw up plans for our dormer extension. Have to say we feel that Mark went above and beyond what we expected him to. We didn't have to worry about anything. any queries were answered promptly, and Mark guided us through everything, as my wife and I were totally clueless. Many thanks, Mark. Would highly recommend you to anyone!

I would like to say how impressed both my wife and I were with the service and approach of MSBC. Mark has a relaxed and professional approach to the task in hand. I feel he listened and worked closely to bring to life our dream and aspirations. We certainly gained from his experience.
A first rate service.

MSBC provided 'design' and 'as built' energy calculations to ensure Building Regulation compliance for a new building property in Dursley, Gloucestershire.

MSBC also coordinated sound and air pressure testing.

The service and ongoing support was exceptional.

Mark was extremely helpful and efficient in providing the calculations. As a building contractor would recommend to anyone. Charlie Franklin @ 2016-10-31, 22:21

Highly recommend this company for great service and quick reports and results. Paul wilkins @ 2016-02-17, 19:49

Thanks for the speedy service, Mark. We had made many changes from the original specification which must have caused you a lot of work in the "as built" calculations. Nevertheless you produced the certificates in a very timely manner. I will definitely be using you when (if!) I take on another conversion or build.

Thank you Roger, it will be a pleasure to work with you again - I'm sure now you've been bitten by the bug you'll soon be wanting to start again! Roger Edmunds @ 2016-01-07, 19:50

Excellent service!
Mark was always on hand to answer our questions/queries and issued our As built SAP Calcs/EPC within 24hrs of us submitting the relevant information.

Thanks again Mark

(This was the 1st time we'd worked with Andy, he had all the information to hand which enabled a quick turnaround and we hope to do do business with you again soon!) Andy Calow, www,calco-construction.com @ 2015-11-15, 14:46

Mark provided a good service and helped me out with advice and explanations. Was patient with my questioning and initial lack of required information.

I'd have no problem in recommending him to others.

(Paul built a new house with SIP panels and a zinc roof and achieved a Pressure Test result of just over 2 which gave him a fairly comfortable pass under SAP) Paul ~Baker @ 2015-08-20, 18:44

Mark is very professional and did a first class job of providing the calcs for two new builds. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Mark.

(Bryan built two new houses which were easy to get a pass with as a PV system was provided and insulation above Building Regulation requirments) Bryan Billau @ 2015-06-26, 07:53

I used Mark to perform SAP energy calcs as part of a building completion certificate for a glazed conservatory.
The work was done very quickly and Mark liaised directly with the head of compliance at stroud council. Very happy with the service I received. MJ Worsfold @ 2015-03-16, 11:44

I used Mark to carry out my SAP assessment. Not only was he extremely price competitive, he was helpful and very prompt. He pointed me in the direction of someone who could carry out a pressure test to obtain an accurate SAP assessment. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mark and his company. Richard E @ 2015-03-10, 16:16

general comments

testimonials from previous customers

Mark is wonderfully helpful! My client needed a SAP, and at the same time Mark gave advice on Part B. Fire Safety.

(Thank you Louise - this calculation was for an extension where the glazed area was more than double the 25% allowance but replacement windows to the rest of the house enabled us to demonstrate compliance) L. Ratcliffe @ 2015-05-11, 11:11
