Our clients regularly contact us to say thank you and provide positive reviews and feedback. Here is just a sample from recent architectural design and structural engineering projects for property extensions, conversions and redesigns we have completed. 

Lee W.


"BetterLivingSpace were prompt, efficient and affordable. They got back to me faster than anyone else. Their quote was one of the lowest and they delivered in less than half the time they quoted. Very pleased. Thank you BetterLivingSpace!"

Tristan D.


"We were recommended Ed through a trusted local builder who has worked on several projects with him. We had our initial plans drawn up by an architect but it was Ed who has truly brought them to life and finessed every detail while incorporating a few extra things after listening to our needs and wants. His business manner and his general character is better than you would hope for when dealing with a project that is so personal like your home. He is very approachable and listens. I would highly recommend him for any project you are thinking of. Hopefully we get in a position to use you again. Thanks again Ed.

Parmjot and Ricki B.


"We had a difficult case for a loft extension, which had previously gone to appeal through planning and been rejected. Ed was able to come in with his wealth of experience and suggest something that we had not considered. Needless to say that we obtained planning consent fairly quickly - in three months - after over a year of battling the council!"


Chris M.


"Very comprehensive service, Ed was extremely personable and easy to deal with. He was able to quickly adapt when when we asked for some changes and produced revised drawings quickly. Plans were of a very high standard and complemented by builders."

Irene C.


"5 Star Review! I cannot recommend Ed at BetterLivingSpace highly enough. He provided structural calculations and structural plans for a renovation project on my home. I am a worrier but immediately felt at ease on meeting Ed, who was so calm and took the time to help me understand the structural components. He clearly has so much knowledge of his trade. He answered my questions and queries with patience and clarity. I was extremely grateful also that Ed, and also Clair the company's marketing manager, were always at the end of the phone continuing to give answers, advice and reassurances during and even after completion of the project, for example with the complexities of Building Control. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Previously I had a dated and cramped home, which was not suitable or safe to bring my young grandchildren to, so was a constant worry to me. Thanks to Ed’s expertise and input, I now have an open plan, modern space in which to entertain safely. 

Ed and Clair’s presence was invaluable. It is very clear that Ed and Clair care passionately about providing the very best service and experience to their customers and that is exactly what they delivered."

Linsey M.


"Ed was very helpful regarding the plans for our extension - the fact that he can also handle the structural engineering side of things made the whole process much smoother - would highly recommend him."

Luke C.


"Ed has worked with us on the internal renovation of our kitchen and dining room, and a garage conversion. He is knowledgeable and came up with excellent ideas to make the space flow, whilst keeping our budget in mind. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his service and in fact have already recommended him to others."

Stephen and Elizabeth L.


"We worked with BetterLivingSpace on re-designing our house for a significant rebuild.

We are delighted with the results. Ed worked closely with us, understanding the brief, but also challenging it to create exciting and novel ideas. Always, however, working in collaboration to ensure they were sensitive to our aspirations."

John M.


"BetterLivingSpace produced a really creative solution and Ed was very attentive throughout the whole process. We were very lucky to have someone with so much experience designing our extension."

Vanda S.


"Ed is friendly, knowledgable, reliable and went above and beyond what is required. We did not have the easiest project but Ed was there every step of the way to offer invaluable advice and revised our plans both quickly and efficiently. We highly recommend his services."

Karen T.


"Ed helped tremendously throughout our design process. Testing new ideas, talking through our requirements and adding his own experience to offer alternatives and enhancements, ensuring that the final design provided by BetterLivingSpace reflected all that we envisaged. 

Seeing our designs brought to life in 3D was a really helpful aspect to the service. Ed has extensive industry and building legislation knowledge, which he offered freely throughout, ensuring we didn't waste any time submitting plans likely to be rejected. 

A professional, creative, personable and thorough service from BetterLivingSpace."

David S.


"I've worked with Ed Ollett from BetterLivingSpace twice now. On both occasions he has provided an excellent and efficient service. I look forward to working with him again in the future."

Richard W.


"A very big thank you to Ed at BetterLivingSpace for all his help and knowledge. The structural advice and detailed technical information for our builders was excellent. Can’t thank you enough. We are pleased to recommend the company."

Paul D.


"Ed helped us with removing a connecting wall between the kitchen and dining room, including the first floor chimney breast. As it was a main structural wall Ed's structural engineering skills were invaluable. We also enlisted Ed's project management skills so the work could be completed while we were on holiday. It was great to return with all the work complete and not having to live through the mess. Something that wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for Ed monitoring the builders and keeping us updated on the progress. I wouldn't hesitate in using Ed again and highly recommend, He was a pleasure to work with."

Darren S.


"Many thanks to BetterLivingSpace. They provided a very clever design, which flows well within the existing space."

Amy C.


"Ed was very helpful, we will not hesitate to use him in the future."
