“Couldn’t be happier with the experience. I used Robert Blake Designs for planning, drawings and structural design of an external granny annex and their designs were spot on with what I was looking for. Will walked me through the whole process and was very responsive to any questions or changes I wanted to make.”


“Thanks to the relentless effort from the great team at Robert Blake Designs, planning for our extension in Loughton was passed. There were many conditions to contend with due to it being a difficult case because of two protected trees within the boundary of the property. This meant arb reports, RPAs, RC and piles were all requested at different stages by the local authority, resulting in several amendments to the original plan. Robert Blake Designs took care of everything and in very good time. Without their knowledge and experience I’m sure we would not have achieved this result. “


“We used Robert Blake Designs for the structural engineering part of our extension design. Our quote was very competitive, and Robert and Will were very responsive, helpful and professional throughout the whole process, answering all of our questions, making changes, and giving the advice we needed. I even recommended them to my mum for her extension design!”


“Very much recommended, I dealt with Will, from the first site visit right through to project completion, Nothing but professional, all phone calls and e-mails answered promptly, a refreshing change from previous experiences with other Architects. Many Thanks.”


“We had an issue with the existing house foundations, and they were able to attend at short notice to meet the contractor and find a way forward. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them in future and would highly recommend to all our friends and family.”


“Robert Blake Designs was recommended to me by a family member who also used them. I contacted their office and was designated Will who listened to my ideas and needs. He arranged to come round and go through our plans for our property. The drawing were designed and alterations made until we were happy and Will submitted them to the local council taking all the stress and box ticking off our hands. Extremely happy with the service and would recommend to friends and family.”


“We’ve used Will from Robert Blake designs twice now. He is quick, efficient and reasonably priced. Always willing to chat and discuss over the phone throughout. We had a beautiful loft conversion he designed for us and he took away all the hassle of the planning permission submission. Would highly recommend.”
