"We engaged Rob having spoken to a few architects for our 2 storey wrap round extension. Rob got our vision immediately and helped us unlock some key areas of the build where the enthusiastic amateur in me had hit some dead ends in design terms. After safely and sensitively navigating us through party wall agreements due to the extension needing piling foundations we finally arrived at end of the build and we are delighted. The proportions and flow Rob designed in are tremendous and beyond our high expectations. We could not be happier and we have no hesitation in recommending Rob and using his services again in the future. From rapid communications to calming experience in getting us through tricky points of the process Rob was always there for us and it was great to have him on our side.
Mr & Mrs R - Lindfield, West Sussex
“Rob recently acted as my Employers Agent on the build of Broadlands Grange in West Sussex. It was very important to me to have an experienced, trustworthy professional overlooking the construction of my new home. He played an invaluable role as my ‘eye and ears’ throughout the project which was extremely comforting. It’s crucial to have someone on the team who can interact with the builders and sub-contractors to ensure that everything is being done right as well as offering fresh ideas and perspective. In summary, Rob was worth every penny.”
Mr L-S - Burgess Hill, West Sussex
"After having a very bad experience with another company, my husband and I were very hesitant on who to trust in taking our vision of an extension for our new home to reality. Rob was recommended to me by a colleague and I have to say that the professional service he has provided has gone above our expectations. Rob explains very step of the process, he has kept us to date with progress and supplied professional drawings and plans. He has handled all of the planning permission procedures, and has been available at all times to answer any questions we have had. When the building control department required further SAP information, he was able to source the correct person for the job, and ensure that it was dealt with in an unbelievably quick time, allowing the project to continue. Rob was able to recommend builders, and I have to say I am very pleased with our choice, they have been able interpret the plans to become a reality. Rob you have restored our faith in finding the “right person for the job”, and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone. We cannot speak more highly of your professional services. Thank you."
Mr & Mrs J - Haywards Heath, West Sussex
"Ours is a modest end-of-terrace house built in the 1970s. It had been previously extended to offer an additional room downstairs and a shower room. These were no doubt useful at the time and were part of why we bought the house 16 years ago. However, they tended to make the downstairs of the house feel rather dark, oddly shaped and cramped. As a retiring couple our needs have changed and we wanted more of a sense of open space and light, even if it meant losing a room. We had some ideas about what we wanted but Rob brought a vision which we would never have thought of. His plans provided the blueprint for a transformation of the kitchen and living areas of our little home into the spacious and light-filled spaces we had hoped for. We have no hesitation in recommending Rob for any design work or renovation you have in mind."
Mr & Mrs S - Haywards Heath, West Sussex
“This is the first time we have had any building work done. In the past we have just moved house! This time it made sense for us to make our perfect house even more perfect by adding some extra ground floor space. We were recommended to Rob Thomas and he made the process very easy and simple for us. He listened to all our ideas and quickly drew up a plan. After a couple of minor revisions we were ready to go and he did all the work of submitting the plans for planning approval, which was quickly granted. He also gave us a list of builders and we were delighted with the one we selected from his list.”
Mr F & Mr T - Haywards Heath, West Sussex
"Based on our experience, I would thoroughly recommend Rob Thomas Architectural Services. Rob took our initial brief, patiently explained the process, and designed a single-storey extension to our house that fully meets our needs. He was very open to accommodating our changes and was quick to react when we encountered a problem with our foundations that necessitated a redesign and re-approval. Rob has an encyclopaedic knowledge of all the stages of planning and approval and proactively prepared all the necessary documentation without the need for follow up. Most importantly for me, he provided calm guidance and reassurance when it was most needed."
Mr & Mrs C - Haywards Heath, West Sussex
"Rob was absolutely fantastic in helping my fiancé set up her dream of running a dog grooming business from our home address. Rob took all the stress away in submitting the planning application on our behalf, and dealing with the council's requests for information. Polite, courteous and always professional, Rob is an asset to his profession and I cannot recommend his services enough."
Mr & Mrs S - Burgess Hill, West Sussex
"I downsized from a family house to a small two bedroomed property almost a year ago and decided that I wanted to extend the kitchen. Rob was brilliant with various suggestions, and created drawings which were excellent. He worked within the timeframe that he had originally quoted, and he also got everything passed by the council with the minimum fuss. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rob for any architectural services that may be required."
Mrs M - Southwater, West Sussex
"I cannot thank Rob enough for the work he has done in drawing up our initial plans and then taking them through to planning stage on our behalf. The whole process is seamless with Rob in control, he handles everything behind the scenes and works hard to ensure you get the best possible outcome. I have no hesitation is recommending him for anyone who is considering any renovation/extension work to their current home. He would always be our first point of call."
Mr & Mrs H - Haywards Heath, West Sussex
"Rob worked quickly and professionally with ourselves and our neighbour on a party wall agreement that was needed before our extension could start. Rob was extremely patient and tackled all issues in a confident and professional manner. We would definitely recommend Rob to anyone needing assistance with a building project."
Ms H - Haywards Heath, West Sussex
"From our first meeting with Rob we found him to be very professional and informative. He dealt with all aspects regarding the plans for our extension; approaching the Council for planning permission and building regulations, and the Water Company about the drains. He also provided us with the names of four builders, all of whom contacted us promptly and are in the process of providing quotations. We would not hesitate to recommend Rob to anyone else who needs plans drawn. He has always been very quick to answer any of our queries."
Mr & Mrs W - Horley, Surrey
"We found Rob to be professional and courteous. He had some very good ideas on our project that we had not thought of, which we used and the timeline he gave us was spot on. We would definitely recommend RT Architectural Services to family & friends and if we have anymore projects we would consult with him again."
Mr & Mrs R - Broadbridge Heath, West Sussex
"Having had some initial ideas ourselves about extension plans for our house, we contacted Rob to discuss what was or wasn't viable. Rob was able to provide guidance and put further ideas forward, which then resulted in him putting together detailed and well laid out drawings for planning permission and building regulatory approval. We have been very pleased with the support Rob has provided to date, and are now looking forward to seeing the drawings come to life."
Mr & Mrs N - Horsham, West Sussex
“We used Rob when we converted our Garage into a Playroom / Bedroom, and couldn’t of been happier, he made the whole process from start to finish run smoothly, and made all the planning process a lot simpler and stress free than we thought. We would definitely recommend Rob to family and friends and will go to him for any future home improvements.”
Mr & Mrs L - Haywards Heath, West Sussex
"Rob helped us with our party wall agreement. He was a very fast and diligent worker. When the time comes we will 100% use you again and recommend you to our friends and family. Thank you for helping us over this stressful time."
Mr and Mrs L - Hurstpierpoint
"Had the pleasure of meeting Rob recently who provided me with an excellent and timely service on plans for a garage conversion. I would 100% recommend his services."
Mr H - Burgess Hill, West Sussex
"Rob provided professional services from start to finish including the initial quote which was clear and concise on payment and application timelines and providing advice and guidance on any queries we had. I will definitely recommend RT Architectural Services to any friends or family who require architectural services."
Mr & Mrs O'G - Hassocks, West Sussex
"We hired Rob to help provide advice, produce the Sketch Scheme, Planning and Building Regulations drawings and party wall notification for a rear extension. Rob has provided a professional service from start to finish producing excellent work on time and as quoted, responding quickly to questions and amendment requests when we changed our mind on part of the design. Many thanks for all your help and hard work."
