Right from our first contact with Mark Harris, he listened carefully to our rather vague ideas, coming up with some imaginative concepts and alternative designs and backing them up with excellent drawings and renditions. Mark was very thorough, and clearly knew all the relevant regulations inside out – as well as the limitations they might create for us – which was very assuring.

Most importantly to us, he was very proactive throughout, even contacting a surveyor on our behalf to provide more accurate information about the necessary groundworks, which formed a substantial part of the project. He identified and engaged closely with potential contractors, and drove the planning process from start to finish. All in all, we wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again, and certainly to recommend him to others.

From the first conversation with Mark Harris he showed us his value and experience. Throughout the planning of our project he has been exceptionally punctual and accurate with the whole process of the architecture and planning and has guided us with integrity and honesty.

To provide some examples Mark has always been able to explain the processes and planning application stages very clearly to ensure we understand fully; given us good thoughts and ideas of what we can do with the property - much more to think about than the original idea we came to him with; Given us clear drawings which have been regularly reviewed with us.

Mark has been very at good at communicating throughout, managing us and the council with regular updates via texts, calls and face to face meetings where appropriate. We would highly recommend MJH Architects for any project.

Having never engaged an Architect before, we wanted to speak to several people before we committed ourselves.  We found MJH Architects very approachable and the easiest of all to talk to.  Mark came up with a number of options for our loft conversion, balancing both our needs and our budget.  We would happily recommend him to anyone and would definitely use again on another project.

My wife and I have dreamed of renovating our property for years.  We met Mark and were immediately impressed by his knowledge, experience and willingness to help our house reach its full potential.  His designs blew our minds and were beyond anything we could have imagined.  He's making our dream a reality.

When I got in touch with Mark from MJH, I already had a very good idea of what I wanted to be done to my house, so much so that I thought I would only need Mark to get the process through.  However, this is why Mark is a professional and I'm not; he opened my eyes to different designs that I would never have thought of and I'm really glad that he did as the design he came up with was far better than mine. I have a young family and, I must say, Mark was brilliant and accommodating in regards to this.  He understood the challenges of what a toddler brings from nap times to rescheduling meetings due to unforeseen circumstances when having a kid.  Mark worked around us, rather than us working around him.  Mark really made the process easy for us, gave us great ideas, and got us our planning application........ basically exactly what I was after!!

We were very happy with the service provided by MJH Architects to us in relation to the design of our two-storey extension.  Mark was very attentive to what we wanted, gave us good advice throughout and maintained good contact during the design and planning phases.  We wouldn't hesitate to use the company again and have already recommended them to others.

From our first meeting with you at the Build and Design Centre it has been a pleasure to work with you.  In a spirit of collaboration, professionalism and with excellent communication throughout, you have interpreted our rudimentary ideas perfectly and transformed them into plans that not just full meet, but exceed, our expectations.

We will definitely be contacting you in the future for any projects where the services of an architect are required.

We can highly recommend MJH Architects for any work you need to have done.  They guided us through the whole process and nothing was too big a problem (and we had a few, but not of their making).  Mark's attention to detail was second to none

We first met Mark when we asked him to quote for the design work to turn our garage into habitable space, build an extension above and a new double garage in the garden.  From the outset, we noted how well he listened, explained the various stages and used his relevant knowledge and experience.  His experience in local government also seemed a real advantage, in addition to knowing the local planning staff.

After the brief, Mark presented our suggested approach along with half a dozen very interesting alternatives, each illustrated by detailed drawings.  This demonstrated his creativity, which we were seeking, rather than mere draughtsmanship.

Mark and Kate kept us well informed of the planning process and managed us through an initial hiccup to a successful conclusion.

We'd heartily recommend MJH and are looking forward to working with them on the next stage.

We found Mark easy to talk to and he provided us with plenty of concept ideas.  Having agreed the project, Mark dealt with the various regulatory processes required to undertake the development. 

The quality and detail of the plans produced was remarked on by builders invited to tender for the work. 

We found MJH Architects very helpful and would use them again.

As I live with my mother, without a man around, we were a little anxious, especially as we hadn't used an architect before.  Mark at once put my mother and myself at ease.  We were both reassured by his professionalism whilst maintaining being friendly and approachable. 

He kept us informed all the way along, his communication was impeccable and he helped us consider other options with guidance and visuals.

His knowledge seemed endless and in a very short space of time we arrived at the application stage.  The whole process has been swift, clean, totally professional and as a result, we cannot recommend MJH highly enough.  

We will definitely use them again for any requirements we may have in the future.

Mark and Kate were the obvious choice after first meeting them. 

They were easy to work with throughout the process.  We worked together through lockdown which made it more challenging.  It took over a year to get through planning due to the pandemic but Mark and Kate worked hard to get us the result we wanted and they always communicated well with us throughout. 

We would definitely use them again if we decided on another project in the future.

Being in a Conservation Area, making changes to one's property can be a minefield with regard to planning consent.  So, rather than try to 'wing it' ourselves, we used Mark and Kate of MJH. 

Mark came up with four or five different options, all of which were feasible.  Hard choice, but we eventually settled on one, which was duly submitted.  The experience was seamless and their patience when we changed the plan halfway into the process was admirable. 

Result: permission granted in the stated allocated council timeframe.  We would highly recommend MJH as a 'go to' source of expertise.

Mark and Kate listened to all of my ideas for the ground and first floor extension of the house.  Mark channelled these ideas and backed them up with accurate, thorough and detailed plans into a working format.  Mark liaised with both the planning department and me right from the beginning of the planning process through to approval.

What had started as a maze of thoughts from me, was translated into an opportunity for an exciting project and development.  I would not hesitate to ask for their advice and services in the future and fully recommend MJH Architects.

I would not have been able to bring my ideas and thoughts to life without MJH Architects.  Meeting the team for the very first time was enough for me to instruct them to complete my architectural plans. 

They listened to me, contributed and understood my requirements throughout the whole process resulting in me being thoroughly satisfied with my end result.  I cannot recommend them enough.

We are delighted with the service provided by Mark.  We gave him some fairly wide general ideas of our own and he took those away and came back with a number of imaginative, exciting and practical options for us to choose from.

We were impressed by the way he immediately understood what we hoped to achieve and the overall effect we wanted to create, but also remained mindful throughout that we were on a limited budget. 

Mark was calm and patient with us and very easy to deal with.  He has helped us to create our dream home and we would highly recommend him to others.

When we embarked on a project to extend our property we searched for a local architect to help us.  We decided to appoint MJH Architects to assist us.

They have been outstanding throughout the whole project.  From start to finish they have expertly and professionally guided us through the whole process of incorporating a wasted area into a very useful extension. 

Their design has far exceeded our expectations.

It is so gratifying to find such professional expertise in our local area and we have no hesitation in recommending them.

Mark Harris was recommended to me and I have been pleased I chose him.

Mark is extremely enthusiastic and very agreeable to deal with.

He listens to the client and designs accordingly.

Mark and Kate kept me informed as we went through the planning process.

Mark's previous work that I saw displayed at the Homebuilding and Renovating Show was impressive.
