Testimonials

“All-Design have been great to work with. Paul and his staff were very keen to help realise the project; not only in terms of the architectural scope of work, but also offering consideration to the functional aspects of how the service kiosk would work for the business.

Paul himself is very hands on and very enthusiastic about his work. I highly recommend using All Design for their friendly and professional approach.

Look forward to working with them again soon.”

Graham D. Smith, October 2019

“I have been really pleased with the services provided by All Design from initial contact through to completed plans. Everyone I have spoken to has been so helpful and nothing has been too much trouble.”

Lesley Mundie, April 2019

 
“Following an initial meeting on site, Paul sent me some designs and ideas and after a few tweaks here and there a decision was made.  Drawings were then done; all relevant paperwork; planning; discussions with council; engineers etc. - all completed and everything was delivered as promised.  Payment was easily done and in stages, as was agreed at the beginning, with no hidden extras. 

I wouldn’t hesitate to use All Design again - a very professional and helpful firm all round. Thanks again guys and good luck in the future.”

Mr G Petrie, Aberdeen - February 2019

“I contacted Paul at All Design (Scotland) Limited to assist with a late warrant application.

Paul took care of the warrant application and associated documentation to suit the work carried out.

The work then progressed to completion in a very satisfactory manner.

Mr. McMillan.”

Mr McMillan, February 2018

“We contacted Paul last year regarding a garage conversion we were about to embark on.
Paul initially met with ourselves to discuss our thoughts and wants, and then led us through
the full turnkey cycle from drawings submission, building warrant approval, tender
submission and award, and project management throughout. Audrey kept us abreast of
everything that was happening so we knew where we were at all stages of the build.
One added bonus was the recommendation of the builder (Andrew Robertson) who All
Design had used on previous projects, and proved to be an excellent addition to the team
whilst providing an outstanding service.
Our dealings with All Design were nothing short of first class, and we would have no
hesitation in using, or recommending, All Design for any future projects we may have.”

Glen Ross, February, 2015

"All-Design have been very friendly and professional to work with. They project managed all the works associated with our extension - from planning consent and contractor appointment right through to completion - certificate granted with no issues at all. Costs and staged payments are clearly explained so there are no surprises as works progress.

We would look no further for any future projects and would confidently recommend them to anyone planning building work on their property."

"When we wanted to have a substantial addition to our property, we firstly assessed a number of Companies that offered to undertake the design and project management of the work.

Of the three Companies that offered to do the work, we chose to give the work to All-Design (Scotland) Ltd.

This was mainly because of the confidence we had in Paul Walber. In the initial discussion, Paul proposed deisgn ideas that enhanced our basic initial requirements.

Throughout, Paul was very thorough and professional, but always had time to consider what we wanted. He would also take a comprehensive view of the ancillary needs of the project e.g. environmental issues.

The drafting of drawings for the modifications were first class and I'm cretain, contributed to the smooth prgressing of the modifications through the planning process.

We'd have no hesitation in appointing All-Design (Scotland) Limited and Paul Walber for any future building projects."

John Welding, Milltimber, Aberdeen - May 2017

"Audrey and Paul have been very efficient and helpful during our unusual extension work. Paul was very knowledgeable about what was possible and how to use the space to our advantage. He took on board our needs and ideas and gave us a range of options to work with. He dealt with all the paperwork and kept us informed of the progress of our application. He oversaw the build, ensuring that the correct protocols were followed at every stage. He facilitated meets between the contractor and myself to finalise options on the build and discuss additional costs and changes as they arose. He was always quick to respond to emails or calls and arranged meetings in short time frames to ensure as little delay as possible. his initial timescales on the project were also very reasonable.

He was very honest about appointing contractors and gave insight into what he felt their strengths were with examples from previous work he had seen. He showed a great deal of professionalism and it was easy to trust his opinions and instincts. As it worked out this worked in our favour as the chosen contractor (recommended by Paul) was also fantastic and together they have given us plenty of additional functional space to expand our family.

Paul and Audrey didn't stop there as well as being on hand during the renovations for alterations to the plans they were quick to ensure snagging was completed and have reacted quickly to other issues that have arisen, in fact one issue was resolved before I had officially reported it to them!

I would recommend Paul and Audrey to anyone wishing to extend their home."

Laura Moore, Bridge of Don, Aberdeen - May 2017

"Following a flooding event at our house we decided to make some additional changes to the internal layout of the house during the rebuild. Paul from All Design performed a site visit and we walked through the various options that were available. Paul quickly provided a fixed price quotation for the work which included a measurement survey, architectural drawings and submission of the building warrant application. The cost was very competitive and the fixed cost element was important on our tight budget. Paul also assured me that the fixed cost would include revisions to the drawings and responses to any questions from building control in relation to the warrant. Paul liaised with my surveyor from the insurance company to walk through the new architectural drawings. In addition, Paul was able to recommend a structural engineering firm to design the necessary structural elements such as additional roof supports and a new picture window that was to be cut into the building.

 The All Design team were very quick to kick off this job and the architectural drawings were prepared and submitted to building control on schedule which was important as the building warrant approval needed to tie-in with the schedule for the flood insurance repairs. Also, very importantly for us, the work was completed on budget. A happy customer!"

Chris Murphy, Dyce - April 2017

"We received approval and drawings through the post today and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your work and persistence in what seemed like a lost cause to us, but turned round by you into reality. Many thanks on behalf of my wife and I."

"We were very happy with Paul from All-Design in a project to modernise and extend our existing conservatory. We were looking for a smart contemporary look and the design and build have certainly delivered. It was reassuring that Paul was involved from design through to project management and we are very happy with the end result."

Ewan and Julia Wallace, Aberdeen - October 2016

Ken Wright, Aberdeen - February 2016
“We have worked with All Design for nearly 10 years and throughout have been impressed by the professional approach taken by this firm. For the smaller firm to survive customer satisfaction is paramount and in the case of All Design is reflected clearly in the referrals they currently enjoy from their clients.”

Ken Wright, Wright Associates, Aberdeen - February 2016

"We were impressed by Paul's approachability and professionalism during our consultation and will have no hesitation in coming to you when the time is right to revisit our home development plans."

Craig Law, Aberdeen - February 2016

"After carrying out unauthorised modifications and building works at the two HMO properties in my property portfolio, I was ordered by Aberdeen City Council to make both modifications and to obtain building warrants as a matter of urgency. As a result I contacted All Design Scotland (Paul Walber) and to date the service they have provided has been both of a high standard and has been sufficient to satisfy the demands of the council personnel.

They have also proposed longer term solutions which would allow me to utilize extra bedrooms, thereby making at least one of the properties more economically viable.

Their friendly and professional communicative skills have also been of benefit on overcoming most of these problems.

I would therefore recommend All Design for any similar work."

Peter Mearns, Aberdeen - February 2016
