We have recently completed a large two story extension and couldn’t praise Mark enough for the input at the beginning of our project. Mark provided fantastic advice and ideas when looking at initial building options - he saw the space in a completely different way than we had even imagined and we have been so grateful of the fantastic living space we have benefited from since completion. In our opinion, Mark is very reliable and efficient and an absolute pleasure to deal with (he was also very reasonably priced). He got us to the point of building work starting with no hassle whatsoever - thank you so much Mark!
Mr. & Mrs. Clitheroe - Delabere Road, Cheltenham
We are delighted to receive our planning approval. From the outset it was clear that you would bring dynamism as well as professionalism to help us hrough the process. It has been a pleasure working with you and we would be more that happy to recommend your services.
Mr. & Mrs. Simms - Blacksmith Lane, Churchdown
Mark provided a total service to us during the construction of our new home. We purchased a property with the plan to demolish and build a replacement new house of modern design. Mark helped us through the planning process, listened to our needs and designed a house that works extremely well; beautiful but with a strong element of practicality and cost efficiency. He then ran the tender process to help us select an excellent builder and subsequently managed the whole project through to completion. The build was delivered on-time and within budget via an efficient, friendly and stress-free process
Mr. Wilkins - Shawgreen lane, Cheltenham
There are so few Architects who not only have immense experince within architecture and planning, but have themselves project managed the construction element at every stage as well.This combination of knowledge safeguards the seamless delivery of any project, from start to completion.
Mark Le Grand has been managing the majority of my planning applications, with integrity, across several local authorities for the last 8 years.
He is effortless to work with and has mastered the balance of friendly yet firm communication with the planners. This has resulted in a phenomenal 100% planning approval success rate for my company.
Mr. Pickerill - Southampton & Wycombe district
Mark provided a top notch architectural and planning service for our Grade II listed single storey extension. Friendly, engaging and professional, he quickly understood our exacting requirements and the constraints of the building (Grade II) and location (conservation area).
The final plan was delivered and briefed personally and we were absolutely delighted with the product. Mark dealt directly with the local planners and full permission was granted swiftly and with no fuss whatsoever. We cannot recommend Mark’s services highly enough.
Mr. & Mrs. Richards - Cudnall Street, Cheltenham
Mark took control of the architectural design and planning process for our timber frame summerhouse project in 2019. But that doesn’t begin to tell the story of Mark’s passion to deliver us a space that has genuinely changed our lives for the better.
Working with Mark, the first thing that becomes apparent is his vision, particularly his understanding of the relationship between light and space. While we were still looking at a dilapidated old garage, Mark could already see the finished building and how it would sit in its surroundings.
Mark’s expertise and experience meant we had no problem achieving planning permission on the first application. And from that point on his energy and personality meant he was able to communicate effectively with our tradesmen to make sure his ideas carried through to the final build.
Mark’s obsession with his craft is positively contagious... Thank you Mark, you made the whole process an adventure and you have created us a space for our family and friends to enjoy for years to come!
Mr. & Mrs. Beane - Shrewsbury
Mark was recommended to us by our friends who had been really pleased with the work he did for them. He drew up the plans for our extension and managed the process of submitting for planning permission. We had never had work like this done on the house before and we benefited greatly from Mark's experience and advice. Throughout the process Mark was a pleasure to deal with; approachable, reliable and responsive to requests. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to engage a Planning Consultant.
Mr. & Mrs. Boothby - Colesbourne Avenue, Cheltenham.
We found Mark through recommendation of a builder when we wanted to build an extension on the back of our house. Mark was professional, friendly but most importantly, gave us solid advice - and drawings - on how to maximise our space. When a clash of dates meant our original builder couldn’t do the build, Mark recommended another who did the job and was brilliant.
Communications were clear throughout the process and drawings were tweaked accordingly without any trouble. A great service and at a reasonable cost too. I have recommended Mark to others since and would continue to do so in the future.
Mr. & Mrs. Gillingham - Nettleton Road, Cheltenham
Having appointed Mark to obtain consent for works to a listed property, I found him approachable, honest and quick to act. He showed an excellent understanding of Listed buildings at what works would and would not be allowed by the conservation department. Once the application was submitted he remained in contact, chased the application through to a successful conclusion inside the time frame he suggested it may take. I have subsequently recommended Mark to family and friends.
Mr. Hatcher - Lypiatt Drive, Cheltenham
Having worked with Mark on several development projects, we knew he was the best person to turn to when my family began embarking on our own personal extension and renovation project. Mark’s professionalism, very clear communication and great eye for design made putting our plans together a pleasure. Mark managed to obtain full planning permission for us in what felt like record speed which got us ahead of schedule from the off. We love our new home and recommend Mark’s services to anyone.
