what our clients say about us

Build Architecture Awards 2020 Winner of
"Best Architectural Planning & Structural Engineering Company - London & Home Counties"

We have been using STAAC over the past 3 years to design our Extension. Ashley and his team has always being courteous, patient and take careful consideration whilst working with us to get the design that we wanted. We find them easy to deal with as they put the client at the heart of everything they do. Would not hesitate in recommending STAAC.

Rockel Gooden - Jun 2021

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

Ashley and his team helped me design and achieve planning permission/build regs for my large garage conversion. We managed to create a design that incorporated an extra bedroom with an en suite bathroom including sky light and the perfect boot/utility room. I found their service to be above average and their communication, attention to detail and service was just what I needed as I’d never done anything like this before. I have recommended them many times since. Thanks Team Staac! 😊

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness

STAAC made the whole experience of our loft conversion easy. They were friendly and efficient and we are so happy with the outcome.

Fern McGarret - Jan 2021

I have used STAAC for a number of projects over the last 5 years, most recently for plans for an extension on my own house. They provide a professional and reliable service and are always on hand to offer advice and adaptions to plans if required. It's extremely useful and cost effective to be able to use one company to draft architectural, structural and building regulation drawings for a project rather than have to source them from 3 different companies. I have worked with many different architects and structural engineers throughout my career in the building industry and would recommend STAAC over any others.

Jenny Hall - Jan 2021

Have used Ashley and his team on many projects and can attest to his dedication and hard working to bring about the best results whether via structural plans or dealing with planning depts or building regs. Staac have been heavily involved in projects we have undertaken ranging from 3 to 15 units in size as well as seeking planning for a 44 unit mixed use project.

I often recommend Staac to other property developers and friends who are undertaking their own projects and know he has never let anyone down.

Gareth Morris - Jun 2020

Ashley and the team at Staac helped us to design and provide regulation drawings for a bespoke Artdeco new build project.    The service provided was excellent with great communication throughout.    Clear well designed drawings.    Any queries or alterations dealt with promptly.   The teams knowledge is also very helpful when working on tricky projects!    

We have since used Staac on many more projects and look forward to continue working with them in the future.

Highly recommended using Staac if your looking for a professional to help design your dream home or extension,   or need any structural calculations or building regulation drawings.

I run a construction company and have worked with Staac for a number of years now and can honestly say they are super efficient, very friendly team and produce drawings, calculations and 3D rendering to the highest of quality.

I personally would not use anybody else

I have found Wesley and Ashley and the rest of the team at STAAC to be consistently helpful and nothing has been too much for them. I have felt well supported throughout the whole process of planning the extension to my property and would highly recommend their services.

Daniel Rodger - 19/8/2019

Ashley, Wesley and the team added so much value to our single storey extension project, and also helped expedite our programme which was much appreciated with child number 2 due imminently! Would highly recommend them to work with as flexible and engaged partners.

Mark Denner - 2/5/2019

We are pleased with the service we have received. All my queries and concerns have been resolved. Thanks.

Tracy Watkins - 9/4/2019

A very very professional company. Work is to an exceptionally high standard & the project was closely monitored from start to finish. We are delighted with our finished conversion & would highly recommend STAAC.

Anna - 7/4/2019

Very happy with the service from STAAC who picked up one project from a previous architect (who was unable to complete) & another which was in addition to the original spec requested. They handled the process from survey to drawings to planning application to building reg's submission. All at a very cost effective price in comparison to other firms we had contacted. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Shaune Hulse

This company were with us all the way from start to finish. They were able to establish a plan which involved a 9x5 meter extension with a bespoke terrace on top. With their guidance and support throughout, it made the construction run smoothly and stress free. Would recommend to everyone.

Chris & Kim

We engaged STAAC to provide plans for building control approval for a
loft conversion and a single storey extension and to serve as
specifications for the building contract. This included a survey and the
specifications and plans were detailed with several drawings and, in
our opinion, excellent value. The team were really helpful and when we
needed to make changes at (very) short notice, Ashley made the changes
really quickly which was a big help and greatly reduced my stress
levels! We'd definitely work with STAAC again.

Joe Fortune

I used STAAC for the design and drawing work of our house extension this
year (2018). A very professional service. They came up with some good
ideas, were readily available over the phone to address any questions /
alterations we needed to make and were always happy to help. Was
particularly impressed with the quality of the 3D drawings we
commissioned for the project. Many thanks to Ashley and Wesley.

Mark Ambrose

Architectural Design (Small Projects), Reading, Berkshire, Gill - July 2017


got in touch the same day.

I was given a lot of helpful information and an
understanding of the process. I found the surveyor very approachable and he answered all my questions.   STAAC's quote included everything I was looking for.
Very good value for money.

The supplier was very helpful and explained everything
I needed to know about the process and my options.

Very good service.

Architectural Design (Medium projects), Hassocks, J Croager - March 2017​​​

We have worked with STAAC on a number of residential projects and have found them to be both professional and approachable.  Their drawings are easy to follow and they take care to ensure a considered design approach.  Should issues arise or designs change for whatever reason then they are both easy to contact and quick to resolve matters. I would recommend them to other Architecture and to future clients.
