I was recommended Project Design Consultancy from a friend who runs a property management company to undertake a condition survey of a house I was looking to buy. The service was sensibly priced, efficient with the survey carried out in a timely manner. The survey assisted me to negotiate a better purchase price. I managed to save a further £3000 on one property and a further £1000 on another.

Working with Project Design Consultancy has been a real pleasure and has enabled a tremendously successful outcome. Ray ensured that we were kept informed throughout the entire design and build process; his hard work, commitment and guidance was instrumental in the end product being completed within budget to an extremely high standard. We will certainly utilise his skills again in the future.

Ray has been very supportive and has helped us to ensure that we are not only compliant with all legislation but that we do this at the best possible price with the quality not compromised. He will always respond quickly to emails and phone calls and on top of all that, he does it all with a sense of humour!

Plymouth Hospitals Trust has employed Project Design Consultancy on two if its major parking projects. The first was the design and panning of its prestigious dedicated disabled drivers car park which is now fully operational. The Trust always seeks to try and use local professional companies where possible especially when they have a well deserved and proven track record. The Trust looks forward to working with Project Design Consultancy on more projects in the future.

VINCI Park Services have commissioned Ray (Project Design Consultancy) on multiple occasions to create technical drawings and works specifications for a variety of projects across a number of sites. Ray has always delivered work of the highest quality to time, and budget. In addition his advice and input into a number of our projects has proved invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend Ray, and look forward to working with him closely on future projects.
John Stephens Contract Manager – Derriford Hospital, VINCI Park Services UK Ltd November 12, 2014
We found Project Design Consultancy to be very professional, efficient, flexible and friendly. They worked to the needs of the school and were very keen to ensure that the project delivered what we wanted and within the time frame we specified. They also put a great deal of effort into ensuring any unforeseen difficulties were identified early and they worked collaboratively with us to find the best and most cost effective solutions to these, displaying flexibility and understanding of the needs of the school. They delivered to us an extension of two new rooms which merge seamlessly into the existing building, along with a foyer refurbishment and building redecoration which has transformed how we work and how the school presents itself to children, staff, parents and visitors. The work carried out met all our requirements, had a minimal effect on the running of the school and we couldn’t be more pleased with the end result!
I can recommend Project Design Consultancy to you without reservation.
Des Walsh Headteacher, Pomphlett Primary School January 31, 2014
Last year we required some refurbishment works to our nursery. The decision to proceed was delayed due to the tight restraints on the school budget; however it was preferable for these works to be completed during the summer holidays.
Project Consultancy Design were approached and able to provide accurate drawings and specification for requirements. They managed the tendering process on behalf of the school and project managed the works during the holiday. This supervision of the project was essential to ensure that the works were completed in time for the start of the term.
The service received ensured that the works were completed to a high specification and greatly reduced the workload of school staff.
We can highly recommend this company to provide excellent value for money.
Mrs C Biggs Business Manager, Leigham Primary School January 31, 2014
Ray and his company, Project Design Consultancy, have helped us tremendously through 2 phases of a major church refurbishment project, in which we renovated, renewed and expanded the outside and inside of our church building. From initial concepts, through drawing stages, tendering, project set-up and management, he covered all the bases and provided the expertise that we needed, enabling us to complete on time and on budget. Ray combines many years’ experience, excellent contacts and know-how with an easy-going and affable approach that have made him a pleasure to work with. The service he has provided has been outstanding and the results readily speak for themselves. I can highly recommend him!

Ray Clarke (Project Design Consultancy) provided the professional expertise we needed by project managing the refurbishment of the Bude New Life Centre. He put us together with the additional professional services we required, assisted us with preparing the building specification, the selection of contractors and the oversight of the entire project. Ray worked with our local leadership team, suppliers and contractors to ensure the completion of the project was on time, to the specifications and within the available budget.
The finished product surpassed our expectations. Rays leadership and professionalism left us with a great sense of confidence and we are indebted to him.
