"Happy Building recently completed some design and planning work for a rear extension and loft conversion. Abbas and the Team made the whole process really easy, came up with some great design ideas, and took care of all the admin for the planning application." - Jenny, Kingston Upon Thames

"I had utilised Happy Building's architectural services, where they provided a great service. I then received a very competitive quote for the building work, which commenced mid-October. Unfortunately, it became apparent that the contractor was out of his depth on the project. Although potentially stressful, having Happy Building on our side proved to be a total asset. Not only did they review the services provided, but they redid the work to a professional standard and had an array of traders deployed to help swiftly. A big thanks to Sophie and Valter." - Sarah, Sutton

"Geo Wilkins was our Architect on this project. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the service and the quality of the ideas and plans he created. We felt Geo listened intently as our views were clearly taken on board. Plus, new ideas were suggested, which helped tremendously plan our new kitchen/conservatory. The process was efficient and completed in advance of the scheduled timeframe too." - James, Chessington

"Working with Abbas at Happy Building was a fantastic experience. One I would thoroughly recommend to anyone. Abbas listened to our ideas and helped us to visualise new layouts and possibilities, selecting options that we wouldn't have considered ourselves." - Jonathan, Carshalton

"After a very positive discussion with their client services team, we decided to work with Happy Building. Our project was relatively simple. We wanted to complete a rear extension with an open plan kitchen diner and minor work to our master bedroom. Our assigned Architect, Geo, was extremely positive and enthusiastic. He understood our needs, and we felt really listened to our objectives. The work he created was excellent. After selecting an option, we pretty much went ahead to plan with minor amends. There was some delay in obtaining planning permission, but Geo kept us informed." - Paddy, Epsom

"We were delighted with the work Happy Building did for us. The vision and designs put together by Abbas exceeded our expectations, and he really brought our ideas to life. Also, he was patient and pragmatic as we requested amendments to the original plan and got us quickly to submission for planning approval. Would recommend Happy Building for any architectural work." - Alex, Epsom

"I couldn't be happier with Happy Building's quality of work and professionalism. Our Architect was Anastasia, and she's fantastic! She listened to our requirements, asked lots of questions and gave some great ideas that we would have never considered. We couldn't be happier with our plans and even our neighbours, who extended before us, said they wish they'd designed the same layout. Personally, I loved that Anastasia didn't simply go for the most "standard" and obvious solution but really took time to understand how we'll use the space. 100% satisfied customer!" - Ivelina, Merton

"Happy Building has been professional and amazing in guiding us to the design for our rear extension. Jamie has paid great attention to the design requests and has incorporated our lifestyle into the final plans. We feel we are getting a tailored experience, ensuring we will love living in the new space. Jamie has been quick to communicate, accessible and given clear explanations to our many questions. The team has worked hard to ensure everything is running smoothly and efficiently. We highly recommend them.." - Annie, Lambeth

"I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Happy Building, they have great creative design ideas, and their building work is to a high standard. In addition, having one point of contact from start to finish makes the whole process very easy and stress-free." - Jo, Banstead

"Work is progressing very well at our home. We are amazed at the incredible scale of the development. Each day brings good surprises as we see more work taking place. We are delighted with the Happy Building Team. They work to high standards, are creative, courteous, friendly, committed, honest and hard working. We would not hesitate to recommend them. Valter and his team bring vision, great ideas and solutions. They have worked with us to enhance the project and make our family home the way we always wanted it. A big thank you!" - Sam, Cheam

"I was so pleased I chose Happy Building for my kitchen-diner renovation plan drawings. Unfortunately, the work hasn't started due to Covid-19. However, we achieved council approval in good time. No matter how busy the staff were, they always listened, talked about changes or modifications, and gave me an idea of how much the job would cost. I am so pleased to have chosen Happy Building with their true professionalism and excellent rapport!" - Casper, Sutton

"We chose Happy Building for our architectural design and the planning application. In addition, we included structural design, project specification, and costs for the second stage. At all times, the people we interacted with were super friendly, explaining everything in detail. Happy Building took our wishes and concerns into account. And were very helpful in guiding us through this unfamiliar process of planning and designing an extension.

The design phase was an enjoyable experience because our Architect Anastasia made a real effort to understand our wishes. She also proposed new ideas (like a vaulted ceiling we absolutely love). Anastasia also amended the design to accommodate the concern of the planning permission officer.

The second stage of structural planning and costing also went really smoothly. We got all the necessary drawings and detailed project specifications, leaving no room for confusion. The project specification was so precise that we felt confident there was no chance of misinterpretation when we approached other builders for comparative quotes."- Toni, Sutton

"Happy Building was thoughtful throughout the design process, offering options and challenging our requirements for the better. They didn't just take our idea and draw it, which was refreshing. Instead, the team have been conscientious and detail orientated." - Caroline, Lewisham

"Abbas and the Happy Building team have all been very open, helpful, and knowledgeable throughout our project's design and planning phases. The whole process has been made straightforward. We've been kept in the centre of the process throughout. The financial estimates have been set out in full, and there has been no pressure to spend more than we budgeted for. So overall, we couldn't fault the process." - Tony, Sutton

"Happy Building have been great throughout the whole process so far, their online platform allows you to keep on track and be aware of any updates instantly. Abbas, Ben and Fran have been so responsive, friendly and helpful during the site visit and presentation of options. It was great to see how our build will look with photos and detailed drawings and also to hear their suggestions from their knowledge and experience as Architects. Really looking forward to the rest of the process and hope it continues to be as smooth and enkoyable as it has been so far!" - Nicola, Worcester Park

"Happy Building was clear and frequent in their communication from the start, allowing me to be part of the process and give guidance when required. For example, when we met the Architect, Jamie, at our home, he listened to our planned scope, adding value and experienced viewpoints to the discussion. In the end, we went with a different and better value scope of works through the engagement of Happy Building. Highly recommended." - Joe, Purley

"We found Geo and the team very helpful with all our queries. The overall coordination and communication for the design project were superb. We felt that our ideas were always given due consideration and incorporated as much as practicable." - Maurya, Caterham

"Happy Building was fantastic to work with. From the start, the staff were accommodating and helped explain the process of getting drawings completed and submitted for approval. The Architect that handled our particular project was Geo. He was meticulous, thorough, and really took an interest in how my partner and I utilise the space in our house. As a result, we maximised the potential while keeping to our budget. Geo was extremely helpful and approachable throughout. I would recommend Happy Building to anyone looking to embark on any kind of home build." - Jake, Cheam

"Had an amazing experience with Happy Builders. Our Architect, Geo, was very responsive. He really surprised us with creative suggestions for our kitchen refurb. Geo took the time to listen to our needs. We felt he understood what we were looking for and went out of his way to make sure we were happy. Would highly recommend." - Kelly, Croydon

"We were impressed with the company introduction from Rommel, who gave a great insight into the services provided by Happy Building. We were then assigned Geo as the Architect for our project. He really listened to our ideas and was very enthusiastic about getting the project underway. Geo produced several design concepts according to our budget and worked closely to get to the planning submission stage. We are really pleased with the final plans, and it was a pleasure working with Geo and the Team." - Darrell, Surbiton

"I found Happy Building easy to work with. Ben was clear their scope of work in the design phase. There were clear dates and meetings set out from the start, which were met on time. Geo was our assigned Architect, and he really understood what we needed from redesigning our downstairs living space/kitchen-diner. Geo gave us two great designs to choose from, with lots to think about before we decided on the final tweaks before planning submission." - Lisa, Epsom

"We were supported by Geo while creating the architectural plans for our project. Geo took the time to explain how everything would work and made helpful suggestions to enhance our ideas. This was especially helpful when trying to understand the cost implications of each decision and allowed us to arrive at the perfect balance. Would definitely recommend Happy Building." - Stephen, Carshalton

"Happy Building does really live up to their name, but not just happy; they are competent and accommodating. Would recommend." - Sally, Sutton

"Working with Happy Building through the design process has been a breath of fresh air compared to a previous experience we've had with another Architect. The process we were guided through gave us everything we needed to know about design ideas and impacts on cost, which meant we could make decisions from an early stage around the most important features. The plans were well presented, and we were so happy with the Architect's ideas put forward to us. We look forward to the next stages with Happy Building!" - Alex, Kingston Upon Thames

"Geo was exceptional in drawing up the plans for a proposed kitchen extension and re-organisation of the downstairs of our house. He was consistently patient, imaginative, and a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. This was a difficult job in that the brief involved several unusual accommodations given the special needs of a family member. Still, Geo made real efforts to understand and interpret these needs well while delivering the brief. The design is excellent, and we would not hesitate to work with Geo again." - Thomas, Banstead

"This company was very professional and client-centred. They delivered the job to a very high standard." - Hazel, Merton

"I first contacted Ben. He was a pleasure to deal with, providing me with a competitively priced package that met my needs. I was then invited to meet with our Architect Jamie to discuss my initial design. Jamie had many ideas, and I could see he was excited to take the project on. I've been dealing with Jamie for the past 3-4 months, and the experience has been great. He's been fantastic in coming up with new ideas and has gone above and beyond. Plans are now submitted, and I'm looking forward to the next phase. Again, I would highly recommend Happy Building." - Stephen, Banstead
