“[Suzanne] was brilliant – working from inception to the finish on my project. A total, complete and full-on flat refurbishment in Bath. The property had been empty since 2009 and over time, the interior had deteriorated so much that it was totally uninhabitable. Added to which, the layout of the flat was ill thought-out and poorly converted.

The brief was, on paper a simple task, refurbishment of a poorly converted 3 bedroom flat within a grand Victorian House into a roomy, 2 bed/2 bathroom flat. I had two very clear objectives, firstly, to ensure the flat had a large, “live-in” kitchen that had direct access on to the rear private garden and to open up and reinstate the fabulous drawing room with its floor to ceiling bay windows and working shutters. The previous alterations were ill thought through and made little of the grand Victorian building’s ceiling heights and original features which were sadly either removed or damaged in the first phase of changing the building from large house to individual flats. Suzanne and her team were able to take my rough design ideas and translate them into a fantastic, well thought through plan. In addition, Suzanne’s keen eye for detail and technical expertise was invaluable from start to finish. She was particularly pivotal in securing a superb builder after seeking 5 tenders for the work and has been central to the project’s success, regularly visiting the site to sign off work and for calmly dealing with the inevitable ‘surprises’ that crop up on all building projects. The project came in on time, on budget and client, architect and builder are still all firm friends. I am ecstatic with the result and would work again with Suzanne and her team in a heartbeat.“
