Sevenoaks Plans provided the most comprehensive service for my building project. They provided all the initial design concepts and drawings for the planning applications, and managed all the detail through to full council approval. Their support and knowledge of all aspects regarding construction and the building trade,together with always being on hand to discuss, assist or solve any issues , made everything run smoothly. Many thanks.

A complete modernisation and extension of a 140 year old house in a conversation area whilst keeping the original character. David and his team are friendly and helpful and came up with some great ideas. Their list of contacts for specialist help is impressive, something that smoothed out a difficult planning process and made unforeseen structural issues during the build relatively pain free. I have no hesitation in recommending David and Sevenoaks Plans.

Ok, but only if you use their preferred builders

We contacted Sevenoaks Plan to help us with major renovations to a new property. David is a pleasant guy, competitively priced and has a lot of local contacts. He coordinated meetings with builders and structural engineers in the early stages and subsequently produced initial drawings for us to submit for planning approval. Up until this point the experience was very good, but unfortunately it soured when we decided not to instruct a building contractor from David's preferred list. David became more distant from this point onwards and it felt as if he had disengaged. Once planning was approved David refused to involve our builder with the building control drawings as he said he didn’t have time and there was no value in doing so. Luckily our builders had a good relationship with the local council, but it ultimately led to wasted time and expense on our part as the drawings needed many changes and lacked a lot of detail. It is a real pity given the experience started positively, but suffice to say, I would only recommend David if you also use his preferred builders. If you want to use your own builder then I would advise against using Sevenoaks Plans.

We appreciate your comments and will strive to improve our services in any way we can. Sevenoaks Plans are proud have built a fantastic working relationship with a number of builders over the years, enabling projects to run as smoothly as possible. If a client chooses an alternative builder, we have always been able to support the builder in any way necessary, as have our associated engineers. This has gained respect from builders, leading to recommendations from a builder who has not been appointed by us, to clients who do not have drawings for their project. We recommend builders who we know are able to provide a high standard of work. We take a great deal of pride in our builds and should any issues arise then we will discuss the issue with Building Control, Engineer and the builder to make the building process run as smoothly as possible which is why this has come as such a surprise to us. Our drawings are detailed, and local councils, our builders, and structural engineers are satisfied with the details we provide. Unfortunately we do not know who has written this review, and we have not received any complaint. We would like to apologies if you feel that our services were not as you would have expected.

Sevenoaks plans had drawn out some fantastic ideas for a two storey extension we wanted. We were very pleased with the effort and work they put into our home. We have now had there design built up and it really made a difference for our family. Would definitely recommend David Dennis and his team.

David Dennis whose company is called Sevenoaks Plans provided excellent architect designs and plans for submission to the local council. The continual liaison with all parties involved resulted in the passing of all the plans and building control detail .

We used their fixed-price architect service, which gave us certainty regarding price. The service was efficient and on time, and many builders commented on the quality of the drawings.

Large extension project

We appointed Dave to help us with the planning of a large extension project - the service we received was fantastic! Dave listened to what we wanted and made some helpful comments and suggestions - as a result the final drawings were exactly what we had been imagining for the previous 5 years! He also guided us through the tricky processes of planning permission, structural engineering and building control using his network of equally good contacts, as well as taking responsibility for more minor issues such as the build-over permission for our drains! But the nicest part of the whole experience? At all times Dave was very easy to communicate with, prompt at meetings and with deliverables, and professional - we would certainly recommend him!

Very impressed so far. David listened to what I asked for but also offered an alternative (and much better) alternative scheme. Good communication. Courteous and prompt for meetings.

David supplied me with drawings which matched exactly what I wanted and I found him easy to contact. He made a site visit with a builder which was extremely helpful and was able to put me in touch with other specialist professionals when issues arose.
