Review received June 2013, from Mr Randal McLister, St Andrews – Design for garage conversion with internal re-modelling, planning / warrant processes:

“I am more than happy to recommend D & H Design, David intuitively interpreted what I was trying to achieve and turned round the original drawings very efficiently.

They were happy to tweak the plan with minor changes from me, they dealt professionally in all communications particularly  with the planning and warrant processes.

Most importantly the end result was exactly what I set out to achieve – an excellent service, thank you.”

"We were really impressed with the service we received from D & H Design Limited. The initial site visit, preparation of plans and submission of application were all carried out with great efficiency and promptness.

Review received October 2011 from Mr Crooks, Edinburgh - Double Storey Extension, Planning & Building Warrant.

Very pleased with the service received. From first site visit to sending through completed and passed drawings. David was always available to answer any queries and assisted through any problems with council. No hesitation in recommending DH Design to anybody.

Review received June 2011 from Mr & Mrs Menichetti, Stirling - Extension & Internal Alterations Planning & Building Warrant Plans.

Following a recommendation from a neighbour, I contacted Mr D. Hall of D&H Design and asked him if he could submit a Planning Application and a Building Warrant Application for a rear extension and a ground floor conversion.

This was dealt with very swiftly and professionally and two days after our very prompt first meeting I received the first set of drawings with an e mail.

Of course when my wife got involved we had to make a couple of changes, both times Mr. Hall quickly produced new layouts and soon the plans were approved

After Planning Approval, the Building Warrant drawings were soon prepared and those too had to be changed as piled foundations were introduced.

Mr Hall dealt with all matters with the Planning Officer and the Building Standard Officer and 6 weeks after submitting the BW application we started the piling of the foundations.

At the end of the building work Mr Hall was also of assistance in resolving the usual red tape, final problems.

I can recommend D&H Design, a very reliable, capable and professional firm.

Review received Feb 2011 from Mr & Mrs Smith, Dunfermline - Extension Plans.

We were very pleased with the service recently provided by D & H Design Ltd.  Any requests or queries were dealt with quickly, efficiently and professionally. The whole process of obtaining the building warrant was completed in 8 weeks and at a very competitive price. I would have no doubt in recommending D &H Design Ltd and would definitely use their services again.
Don't know how you could improve the service, we were very impressed with the short period of time it took to gain the warrant. Can only suggest you continue what you are doing as it worked well for us.
Many thanks
Susan & Bob

Review received April 2010 from Mr Good, Fife- Garage Conversion Plans.

Review received March 2010 from Mr & Mrs McBain, Callander- Planning & Building Warrant Approvals - Large Extension,  Internal Alterations and Garage.

I was delighted with David’s work and manner and had no hesitation in recommending him to a colleague. Given that I work for a construction firm, I am used to dealing with architects and design practices and found that David’s information on the drawings was exactly what was required.....all too often you are bombarded with irrelevant information or not enough.  

I wish you and David every success in the future and will of course be recommending him to anyone looking for architectural input.

Kind regards


It is pleasing to employ a company that is both efficient and professional. David listened to our requirements and added to them to secure both building and planning warrants with minimum delay. Particular mention must be made of the  quality of work, value for money and excellent communications. We have no hesitation in recommending the company.  

Review received March 2010 from Mr & Mrs Whitmarsh, Falkirk - Building Warrant - Garage Conversion Plans

"We are extremely happy with the quick and efficient service provided by D&H Design. The architectural drawings were prepared after careful review of our requirements at our convenience and included all desired features. We particularly appreciated the hassle-free way in which the company obtained our Approved Building Warrant from the local authority." 

Review received March 2010 from Mr Hedges, Livingston - Building Warrant - Extension

I was very pleased with the visits and information I received from David, the plans submitted to the council were very detailed and well within the agreed timescales.

We were very happy with the service you gave us throughout the whole approval process.

‘The service we received from DH Design Ltd was friendly and efficient.  We were kept up to date with the progress of our planning application at all times and would recommend their services to friends’.

Kind regards,

Review received July 09 from Mr Allwright, Livingston- Approved Garage Conversion Plans
The service we received from your company was excellent.
The home visit to discuss our plans was straight forward.
David had a rough idea of what we wanted and guided us through the rest of the procedure.
The plans were received a few days later and any changes that were required was performed within a couple of days and issued to us.
Your company handled all correspondence with the council regarding the Building Warrant, so we had no worries there.
After a few weeks we received all the paperwork from the council regarding the Building Warrant.
Up until now everything has gone smoothly and we have had only the minimum amount of work.
