Domestic and Residential

Just a quick note to say a big thanks for all your help in enabling us to secure planning permission for our bigger home.

Mr and Mrs M Whittle

Thank you for all your advice and making the planning process a painless exercise. I would have no hesitation in recommending GBS Designs.

Miss K Knowles, Clanfield

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for all the work that you have done for us.  Your attention to detail and support was definitely the major factor that ensured our planning application was approved with any problem or delay.  We were very impressed with the amount of time that you gave us in person and we both felt that working with you on site helped you understand our vision and vice versa.

We have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and please do come to see us during the building process.

Mr and Mrs M Wedrychowski, Chiddingfold (near Godalming)

Having failed to achieve planning permission and having failed at an appeal, we contacted Glenn of GBS Designs to see if he thought we could achieve our dream of extended our house and provide the additional accommodation our family needed. Glenn worked with us and liaised with the local authority to bring about a mutually satisfactory conclusion and enable us to extend our home. Without Glenn's efforts we would have had to move, something we did not wish to do. We have recommended him to friends and family, and would have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.

Mr & Mrs P Brodie, Purbrook

Many thanks for you efforts in helping to get our plans passed.

Mr and Mrs T King, Denmead

Just a note to thank you for the work done on the project at 120 Eastney Road, Portsmouth. This, like the previous design job you did on the garage block at the same address, demanded a high level of competence in surveying the site and developing the drawings because of the unusual configuration of the buildings.

I am very pleased that your drawings have gained planning approval and will forward pictures when the project is completed. Be assured that I call on you for any further developments that may arise.

Mr G Langton, Southsea

Commercial Testimonials

We have been working with GBS for more than three years now and they effectively provide the CAD and design support functions for our design office.

Providing us with quality drawings based upon our sketch proposals or detailed measured surveys, we have an excellent working relationship with GBS who are careful, thorough and knowledable - a real pleasure to work with. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.

Dan Butt BSc (Hons) FRICS CBuildE MCABE Partner, NOW Chartered Surveyors

I first contacted GBS Designs through a local community website, when I required help designing the layout for a new conservatory. Sceptical by nature, I was initially very cautious and as such Glenn had to expend some effort to allay any fears. With patience, honesty and an open mind to problem solving Glenn made our meetings fruitful, effective and relaxed. As a result of our successful initial dealings, I engaged the services of GBS Designs on a commercial basis with my exhibition stand design and production business. A complex structure with two storeys for a show in Europe needed accurate CAD drawings. With little room for error on site in a foreign country and with no time for re-working in a workshop on a three day build up, we had to get it right first time. Glenn helped us get there, keeping to tight deadlines and tolerances. I would highly recommend the services of GBS Designs, sadly there are few design agencies that operate to his high standards.

Jeremy Doe, Director, Oxygen Exhibitions Ltd

We have recently employed Glenn of GBS Designs on a number of occasions to provide us with CAD drawings for projects we are working on and tendering for. Glenn responded quickly, professionally and produced the drawings to a high standard within the tight time frames demanded; his drawings supported our design presentations and enhanced our tender submissions.

In addition to the above his rates were very reasonable.

We will continue to work with Glenn for the foreseeable future.

Simon Anderton, Director, Closewood Air Conditioning Limited

Glenn Bramble-Stewart of GBS Designs has provided CAD and design support to my practice on a number of projects. In my dealings with him I have found he works to a high standard, is approachable as well as knowledgeable and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
