Testimonials

“I have worked with Doug Fowler for many years and have always found his drawings well drawn and practical. He is always at the end of the phone and always willing to assist with any queries I may have.”

Mr M – CLEVEDON

 

“Doug was helpful in shaping our ideas, and providing different options to fulfill our brief. Doug’s drawings were meticulous and easy to understand. They laid the foundations for a build process that went well. We would recommend Doug to anyone: his expertise and experience were of real use and value to help us realise our project as we had imagined it.”  

Mr and Mrs A – PORTISHEAD

 

“We had decided to extend our home. We asked architect Doug Fowler to act for us and, throughout the process of initial survey, possible schemes, preparation of drawings, planning and building regulations approval, tender submission (and acceptance) and construction by a very capable selected builder, he was always very attentive – and supervised the work through to a successful conclusion. We found him a tower of strength and would have no hesitation in recommending his first class service.”

Mr and Mrs W – CLEVEDON

 

“Doug is an architect of the highest integrity who is absolutely professional and a pleasure to deal with. His technical solutions are genuinely interesting and well thought through.”  

Mrs L – Clifton BRISTOL

 

“Doug was a pleasure to work with. He clearly understood both what we ideally wanted as well as the constraints that we had in terms resources (budget, time etc.). He was both creative and collaborative in his working relationship with us and provided a design as well as a plan of action that worked. Doug made the whole process – from design, through approval, to working with contractors – feel very smooth. The quality of his work was outstanding. He demonstrated a high level of attention to detail in terms of the design as well as the organisation of the project. He is clear with his communication and kept us informed at every stage. Moreover, he was willing to discuss any concerns or questions we had.  He  was personally very affable, friendly and supportive throughout the build and beyond. The final outcome was more than we could have hoped for at the outset. We were immensely pleased with his work. We would not hesitate to recommend his services to others.”

Dr H and Dr R – CLEVEDON

 

“The alterations have certainly transformed our home – Doug has shown great sensitivity and imagination in resolving the internal circulation issues that existed in our property and he has created a wonderful family home.”  

Mr and Mrs H – STAPLOW

 

“Doug provided us with an honest and professional service, he listened to what we wanted and came up with a design and plan that exceeded our expectations. We would be happy to recommend him to our friends.”  

Mr and Mrs J – CLEVEDON

 

“My wife and I were left a delightful but very run down Victorian house in Clevedon.  There are two floors and a basement and attic.  We asked Doug Fowler to have a good look around and to come up with a costed plan to cure the leaks, ensure that the electrics, water and heating were safe.  This he did quickly and efficiently.  We then asked him to oversee all the work that needed to be done.  He talked through with us the quotes, enabling us to make the decision as to which ones we wanted to accept.  He hired the successful applicants and took oversight of the work, ensuring that the results were thorough and completed to a high professional standard.  It so happens that we live and work 100 miles away from our house in Clevedon and so we were totally dependent upon Doug at every stage of the undertaking.  He was punctilious in keeping us informed of the progress and consulting us when necessary.  He dealt with the smaller decisions himself.  Doug was courteous, efficient and highly professional throughout the whole time the work was underway.  Essentially, we must add, Doug maintained a very good working relationship with the workforce.  Consequently we have a house in which to retire that is warm, safe and in very good order.” 

Rev and Mrs C – CLEVEDON

 

“We are so thrilled with the way that Doug transformed our home! We now have a four bedroom family home with modern facilities. The feeling of space and light is exceptional. The rooms upstairs take full advantage of the superb views from our front bedrooms.”  

Mr and Mrs R – CLEVEDON

 

“We have engaged Doug Fowler on two separate occasions to draw up plans and submit these to the local planning office for approval on behalf of our company. On both occasions I am pleased to say Doug behaved in a most professional and courteous manner and both of his submissions were accepted first time with the minimum of interruption to our business or staff.  I would have no hesitation in engaging Mr Fowler for any future projects.”

“Doug has managed to squeeze so much into this small cottage – and it feels so spacious!”

Dr C – IRON ACTON

 

“Doug created a great extension to our home – it is so light and airy, just what we wanted.”  

Mr and Mrs M – BRADLEY STOKE

 

“Mr Fowler did the planning and drawings for our home extension. He also agreed to oversee the building work. The plans were passed first time which was unusual for the City Council! When the building work was in progress, Mr. Fowler made site visits at all stages until the job was completed. He checked with the builder, and us, and gave us the confidence that the job was going to plan as well as being completed to our satisfaction. Mr. Fowler was very friendly but also very professional in all he did for us, and we were happy with his help and guidance.”    

Mr and Mrs F – BRISTOL

 

“Doug was brilliant! Our home is now wonderful – we are so pleased with the result of his efforts.”

Mr and Mrs T – THORNBURY 

 

“I have worked with Doug for many years and on several interesting projects as part of the design team. During the design process it is always a pleasure to discuss each project with Doug and play a part in these wonderful creations.”
