“We hired Keri to carry out our downstairs kitchen/living space extension, loft extension and porch/driveway alterations work.
Keri has remained professional throughout – timely, courteous, reliable and patient. Keri has also given us advice and picked up on aspects which we would not have thought of, such as distances on the side of bed spaces to allow for side tables which do not adversely affect window space and lighting etc.
Keri has been lovely to work with and we would highly recommend her services to friends and family.”
“Keri did a nice job for us efficiently and was very responsive to our questions. We would certainly hire her again if the need arose.”
“It’s been a pleasure working with you Keri. We were new to such extensive home renovations and Keri gave us the support and guidance we needed to get going. She made the link between the planning and building submissions and the structural engineer seamless and gave real support during the start of our new venture. Great communication and very friendly. We can’t wait to see our plans turn into reality. Thanks for all your help.”
“We appointed KBA for our house extension and are very pleased we did. All aspects of Keri’s work proved to be excellent, she worked closely with us on the design coming up with good ideas and producing impressive final drawings.
Once our plans were submitted to Hertsmere Council, Keri followed them up with the planning department and building control ensuring that this phase was as quick and easy as possible. You will enjoy dealing with Keri, she is an excellent architect and a pleasure to work with.”
“We are so happy with Keri’s service for our downstairs extension. Keri was very professional in all aspects, very quick to respond and efficient. We are grateful to Keri for the quick turnaround and we will certainly recommend her to our friends and family.”
“I am extremely pleased with the advice and service provided by KBA. The project went smoothly from initial drafts to final planning. Keri was very patient through all stages of the project. I am so happy with the service provided that I have hired Keri again for a much bigger project.”
“We hired Keri to provide architectural services for converting our bungalow into a two floor house by adding another floor. We are very impressed with her service and glad that we hired her for the work. She listened to us and gave us good suggestions. Our friends are all impressed with the plans. It was a complicated project, but her experience in dealing with planning department and large scale development was very useful. Even with lot of objections to our planning application, we got approval. She was efficient not only during planning process but also during building control. She went out of her way to help us in attaining structural drawings as we had some issues with our structural engineer. I’ve already referred her to my friends and would love to hire her again for any future projects.”
“Keri was recommended to us by our friends who spoke highly of her. Keri helped us plan our 2 storey house extension and was patient and professional throughout and built an excellent relationship with our Planning Officer which went a long way to enabling a successful planning application. We would happily recommend her services to our friends and family.”
“We chose Keri based on her credentials, portfolio of work and proximity as we felt it was handy if the architect was familiar with the local area and the council. We wanted a new internal layout, a new second storey extension and a side garage. This was our first build project but Keri guided us through each and every stage of the planning and application stages in easy to understand terms. Any questions we had were answered quickly. When there were a few unexpected obstacles put in the way from the council and from building control, Keri handled them smoothly and the problems were soon resolved. We also made modifications to our original ideas and again, Keri modified her drawings and technical advice without any fuss. I can highly recommend her if you are doing any sort of building extension or new build project.”
“We very much appreciated Ms Barr’s professionalism and awareness of the important issues when drawing up plans and specification for our proposed extension.
She was very responsive to our wishes and provided creative and practical solutions. The various stages of the design process were carried out effectively and promptly, providing us with ample opportunities to make any changes we thought appropriate.
We would highly recommend Ms Barr’s services to anyone wishing to embark on a building project.”
Sometimes you just get lucky! We felt really comfortable with Keri from the very start and looked no further. Now we have an amazing kitchen extension that blends in perfectly with the original house. The kitchen is flooded with light from the sky lights and large windows that look out onto both front and back gardens. We just love being in there.
