The designs had been well thought through and we didn’t
“Like many architects, Stephen works alongside his clients, but it’s his inspirational response to exploring a design from the very outset that creates momentum to many challenging projects.
He fully interpreted our Brief, but also evolved his designs as different aspects of the project evolved
He was exactly on time and understood the potential administrative issues with planning etc and had allowed a realistic buffer to accommodate these
Stephen has always been very competitive, but brings the full weight of his experience and advice
He did more than add value, he inspired some of the foundational directions of the design, after hearing what we wanted.”

I am writing to thank you for preparing the plans and writing a detailed building specification for my garage conversion. You understood my requirements, you were happy to make changes, and you provided me with extra copies upon request.
Your attention to detail and recommendations, based upon your vast experience, were very helpful , and I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone requiring your services.
Owen Williams; garage conversion, Pontadawe, S Wales.
“The garage conversion that Stephen undertook for us has been a complete success and enabled us to make use of what was a dead storage space. Stephen quickly understood our needs and provided designs ideas for us to evaluate. Whenever we needed input on the design and build he was quick to respond and this meant we could rely on him to keep the project on time and budget.
We are delighted with the result and everyone comments on what a great space it is. We generally used it as a home office and studio but it has also been used for parties. Stephen helped us to solve a number of problems and we still have a good storage area because an extension was created without spoiling the aesthetic of what is an attractive tile hung building.
The designs had been well thought through and we didn’t encounter any major problems in the planning process. The garage conversion has added significantly to the quality and value of our home. We would be happy to recommend Stephen Waldron Architects.”

“Stephen Waldron approached our rather small roof extension project with enthusiasm and care. He treated our house and our opinions respectfully, always listening to our many questions and answering or helping us answer them.
Not only were we happy with the design process but we were also grateful for Stephen’s extensive knowledge of materials, new technologies and his great experience of local planning procedures and building regulations.
I especially appreciated his allowance for ‘good light’, his meticulous efforts to fit our staircase in and his final bill – which came in under budget. I can’t complain about that!
We now enjoy our views daily.”

It is very refreshing to work with someone that thinks with a similar mind set, has great ethics and morals, and thinks how problems can be solved.
You work is always to a high standard and we truly appreciate the level of customer care and the professionalism with which everything is dealt with. We would have no hesistation in recommending you to others with complete confidence that you will do the best by everyone involved.
I look forward to building a long-term working relationship with SWA and feel that you will be a key part of our property career as we move forward.
