Detailed Design Stage

Subject to initial planning approval, detailed drawings are drawn up and submitted for building control approval.

We reviewed a lot of architects for our project and we were't exactly sure what we were able to achieve, but Kris and RKN stood out for us for a number of reasons. Not only are RKN very competitive on price, but Kris was very knowledgeable and really listened to what we wanted and has been really collaborative in helping us define/shape our plans. He has also been extremely flexible and understanding despite a number of changes/questions we have thrown at him during the process. Kris has been really easy to work with- he has been available over phone or email and always responds speedily to us which as a client is fantastic. We have now had our plans successfully approved and Kris is sorting our building reg plans - I would not hesitate to recommend RKN and if we do any more extensions in the future we will be using them again.

- Mr Clarke

I was completely clueless about the process of extending from start to finish and can see how it can become very stressful very quickly - but Kris relinquished all stress. He explained everything to me so that I understood it and handled all of the details with the council/various other governing bodies really efficiently. Kris drew up fantastic plans for us at a time when we weren't sure exactly what we wanted - he took a lot of time to explain different options to us and his insight was really helpful. His recommendations for other services have also been excellent and I have felt extremely confident leaving all the management of the planning in his very capable hands. Highly recommended.

We contacted a few different Architects but Kris definitely stood out amongst them. Professional, personable with an easy approach and excellent knowledge, we have had no regrets in using him. Thanks Kris for all your help.

- Ms Sandiford

Kris from RKN Architectural was thoroughly professional when it came to planning our one-storey rear extension. Knowledgeable and constructive input at every stage. Kris took care of the process from conception to construction. From structural calculations to planning submission, it was all looked after with ease. We would not hesitate to recommend Kris and RKN Architectural for your project!

- Mr Cullen

My wife and I received outstanding service from Kris at RKN Architectural in creating a single-storey extension to our cottage in the Lake District. As a grade 2 listed building in the National Park I expected a potentially lengthy planning process. Kris worked with us to get the design right, and established a good working relationship with the Planning Officer, tweaking the plans as we went along to meet their advice. We were delighted to obtain planning permission without a hitch! From design, through planning to a structural survey and building control Kris has engaged with us in a timely, friendly and helpful manner. I can only praise the excellent service we received and we can now look forward to getting on in the near future to build our extension.

- Mr & Mrs Herring

We cannot praise Kris from RKN Architectural highly enough for his professionalism, efficiency & reliability when assisting us with our single story rear extension. From the outset we found Kris to have a very individualised approach to his work, listening to our ideas and ideals before merging them with his own knowledge, experience and expertise, and encouraging us to maximise our potential. Kris has made the planning, design and regulations process stress free for us and has on our behalf liaised with all required parties involved, Kris has an excellent manner and his communication with us to relay all information has been second to none. Kris has put us at ease, answered all questions and despite us changing elements of the design on several occasions has made it seem no trouble. We would highly recommend RKN Architectural!
