Katie at Binney & Sims has an excellent approach and the clear and considered plans she gave us allowed us to truly imagine the potential of our extension. She was honest, open and a pleasure to work with.
We have found Binney and Sims to be extremely professional and reliable, both their vision in design an advice with technical issues is exceptional.
It has been a simple and pleasant process building up our working relationship with Katie + phill.
Binney and Sims have become an invaluable link in our supply chain.
Katie of Binney and Sims attended my house to discuss an extension over our garage. I was greatly impressed by her detailed questioning our our requirements and presented me with various options. She designed our project from the perspective of how we could make best use of space and aesthetics. Although we never proceeded with our project for unrelated reasons, I would thoroughly recommend her to others.
Superb service from this company - they were friendly and listed to our thoughts and ideas as well as use their expertise to guide us when we needed their help. They kept us informed throughout the processes and made us feel reassured. Thank you for making what could have been a painful process pain free!
Katie drew up the plans for our extension, and handled all the paperwork to get through planning approval. She took our thoughts on-board, and was happy to make amendments as needed. I would certainly recommend Binney and Sims for any planning work, and use them again in future if required.
From our first meeting we knew that Binney and Sims Ltd were the people for us. Katie and Phil were a great help with the initial design of the space we needed to create, offering several solutions and even till the last minute was flexible enough to change. Further on in the process we had various plans / calculations drawn up and nothing was seen as a problem, information was shared freely and promptly. It made the start of the build an enjoyable event rather than the nervous unknown that we thought it was going to be ! We thank you , its been a pleasure !
We would not hesitate in recommending Binney & Sims. We found Katie and her team to be highly professional and very approachable. On our first meeting with Katie we sat down and explained everything that we wanted and she also put us at ease with dealing with the planning application side too. Within a week we had our drawings and Katie had also drawn up some different options that we had not thought about too. Once we had decided which drawings we wanted, we emailed our instructions and our planning application was submitted. Katie and her team kept us informed along the way until planning was granted. This was a stress free process and cannot thank Katie and her team enough. We look forward to showing Katie our extension once finished... thank you once again Binney & Sims.
We commissioned Binney and Sims to internally reorganise and extend a 1980s bungalow to provide an upstairs and a large family space downstairs. They were totally involved, sympathetic and constantly a source of sound and helpful advice and suggestions. Nothing was too much trouble, they were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. And the end product is just a delight.
I used Katie and the team for an extension in Northill. From start to finish during the whole process everyone I dealt with was amazing. They are very knowledgable , made changes quickly and kept me updated every step of the way.
Would highly recommend.
Having used Binney and Sims to design our extension we can honestly say we would thoroughly recommend them, the who,e experience overall has been really great.
All the team worked in a very enthusiastic, professional and prompt manner to help. Katie and Phil made the design process exciting, incorporating our ideas as well as their own to come up with a great design, whilst Heather and Helen in the office kept us sane through the planning and redesigning.
We would have no hesitation in using them for further work
Can't recommend Binney and Sims more highly. Not only are Katie and Phill very approachable, they are extremely professional. They have great ideas, very helpful and always on time. Over and above our expectations in every way. You won't go wrong if you use Binney and Simms.
I have just had some plans drawn by Katie of Binney and Sims and cannot recommend her enough.
Katie is clearly very skilled and experianced at committing plans to paper. But what really impressed me was her amazing interpretation and foresight of the vision that I was hoping to achieve and her enthusiasm and ability to turn them into reality.
I found Katie to be friendly, knowledgeable and also affordable.
I've used other local architectural designers in the past, Katie is the best !
Oak Island Hall, Brampton
Very responsive and helpful. Managed the planning permission seamlessly and kept us informed all the way. We got a little stuck with the structural drawings as the engineer took longer than expected but on th other hand there were 42 pages of calculations. But the team chased it all in and we're very happy.
I would have no reservations about recommending this company or using them again. First impressions from Katie were excellent, warm friendly, allowing plenty of time to explore the opprtunities available and answer all my questions. Pricing was very clear and the timescale was clear and kept to.
They kept me up to date throughout the planning process which was successful. I had to make a minor amendment during the application which was swiftly made by Katie and communicated to the council. Phil was equally as professional and helpful, determining the exact details on site ready for building regs. All my many emails were promptly and comprehensivly answered. The whole process was smooth and I believe the service provided was excellent value for money.
Binney and Sims were professional and approachable from the get go, they made the whole process easy and brought our ideas into an reality, we have been left with an open, spacious family home.
I would thoroughly recommend.
Katie and Phil were thoroughly professional and always responded quickly to our requests. Katie's design ideas were sympathetic to our requirements, and she came up with ideas that transformed the final plan. We happily recommend Binney and Sims.
Katie and Binney and Sims provided us with great support right from the initial email enquiry. Although in the end we didn't go through with the purchase of the house, the plans that they drew up for the extension and redesign of the internal structure were brilliant. They listened to our specification, advised accordingly and it is a great shame that we are unable to see the project through to the end. I would have no hesitation in using the company in the future if the need arose.
Katie helped design and plan our single storey extension and dealt with all planning applications etc. She was very open and approachable whilst maintaining a professional manner. She responded to any queries very quickly.
We would not hesitate to recommend Katie and her team :-)
Katie helped me plan and visualize an amazing extension for my small 1 bed cottage property. The planning application process was all handled by Binney and Sims and the stress completely taken away from myself. Her designs were original and really sympathetic to the property's age and history. I would recommend Binney and Sims Ltd to anyone planning an extension/build. You will not be disappointed.
Katie and her team, Phil and Heather have provided outstanding customer services and not only provided the designs but arranged for a number of builders to quote for the work. Nothing has been too much trouble even if it meant changing the drawings again before they went off for approval. They have made the whole process stress free!
