Our reviews speak for themselves

"Fantastic services from start to finish. Very professional yet friendly staff especially Kieron. The one-off payment system is so convenient for the services provided. Communication and feedback all the way through to the end. Application and contact with building control is all taken care off. Will 100% recommend."

E. Asare - Trust a Trader

"Have worked with the Design Spec team to develop plans for an upgrade to my home - input received on my initial plans has avoided me making some, potentially, costly choices. However the team have been very happy and responsive to include my wishes and ideas as the design developed - planning permission now received - Just need to find the right builder and let the work commence!"

A. Cox - Houzz

"Absolutely delighted we chose Design Spec, they’ve made everything easy and stress free, I can’t praise them enough. Kieron has been very friendly and helpful throughout the whole planning process. I couldn’t ask for more. I would highly recommend to anyone."

J. Barrable - Trust a Trader


"Design spec came recommended to us & James didn’t let us down. We wanted something modern & a good use of space plus it would eventually add value to our property. We were given different ideas & sent through different plans, one of which we went ahead with. Our extension is now completed & it’s just ‘wow’."

W. Brooks - Trust a Trader
