lapd successfully delivered a scheme that imaginatively responded to and understood our brief. The scheme was within our budget, enabling us to carry out more works than we intended. This was a refreshing response compared to having carried the same exercise using a much larger organisation; where we felt our brief was not comprehended and proved too costly to us in the end. lapd went on to develop the project, tender it and oversee the main contractor to complete the works on time and on budget. We were well informed by them at every stage and able to discuss changes or ideas with them, which were then well managed and realised. We were very happy with their service and would certainly use them again for school building projects.

Dear Opinder, just a short note to say a huge thank you. As always, you were fantastic as our Architect expert at the event. Your talk also was extremely well received by our audience - a really good presentation! I do believe you are the most popular expert we have ever had at the centre - with people queuing every moment of the day to see you - on both days. Thanks again for such a sterling performance - it's very much appreciated by all of us at the Centre.

lapd provided a complete service from the start of the project to the end, allowing us freedom to input our own ideas, while ensuring that the project was viable and within cost. We had particular requirements with regard to renewable energy with which Opinder was fully familiar and able to include or reject based on his experience. Highly recommended as a creative and supportive architect

- Residential client

We enjoyed the design process, worked well with the architect and love the design that we have all created. For peace of mind we employed an independent quantity surveyor to check the cost to build the work and we reassuringly found the lapd cost slightly lower than he estimated.

While we tried not to, it became inevitable to change things as the build progressed. Lapd has been flexible and fair with all our changes. At times when we have felt stressed about the build, lapd reassured us and helped us to resolve any problems quickly and simply.

Lapd's unique approach has ensured that we have a well designed and lovely home that is built to a high standard and to our budget. We are delighted we chose lapd and have no hesitation in recommending them.
