We acquired a home that was in need of substantial renovation and modernisation and briefed Robert Rigby Architects on our objectives and requirements for the living space. We were excited by the concepts they generated and having now moved into the refurbished property are thoroughly delighted with the result which has absolutely met our initial brief.From first outline to detailed drawing and then to build completion and snagging, they displayed fantastic commitment and attention to the project as they lived it with us. Inevitably there were changes to be made along the way as the project unfolded and their creative input to find practical and cost effective solutions to these challenges was greatly appreciated.These projects tend to be once in a lifetime and we would have no hesitation in working with Robert Rigby Architects again - although as we are so happy with the result we can’t imagine moving again!
When I was thinking about building a new home I had no idea how to find a reputable architect so contacted the RIBA who referred me to Robert Rigby Architects as they were not too far from my area.Right from the beginning I found someone who listened carefully to what I wanted and nothing was too much trouble. Amendments were made without any fuss or annoyance which put me at ease and allowed me to develop my ideas further plus they were very happy to discuss new ideas and make suggestions. Plans were drawn up, amended and redrawn promptly and without fuss. Robert Rigby Architects were not intimidated by the planning authorities and were efficient and patient in dealing with their negative issues and getting the result we wanted. Not having any builder in mind Robert Rigby Architects offered some referrals as they knew the quality of work; this also proved very successful and there was excellent co-operation throughout the entire build between client, architect and builder with regular and constant contact and meetings to ensure all was going according to plan.All my dealings with Robert Rigby Architects have been dealt with efficiently, calmly and all phone calls and queries immediately resolved.The build was completed within 26 weeks and that in itself is an endorsement to the thoroughness and efficiency of Robert Rigby Architects. I am now the proud owner of a home which is admired by all who see and visit and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone contemplating building their own home.
We were delighted with the design, planning and supervision of our garden room project by Robert Rigby Architects. From start to finish Robert took account of our wishes and ensured that the work was of a very high standard whilst keeping a keen eye on costs.We appreciated the sensitivity with which he ensured that the work was in keeping with the rest of the grade 2 listed building and the surrounding area. We also liked his unflappability in the face of the inevitable unforeseeable problems, which he resolved with skill and good humour.
Dear Bob,Thanks for forwarding the sign off certificate so promptly. We still get compliments re the look of the build and how it blends in.Thanks for your great design!
