What Our Clients Say
RDC have supplied architectural services to ourselves, Granary Developments for the last seven years. We have come to using them exclusively for all planning and detailed matters.We have found them to be both professional, whilst remaining patient with our requirements. Their understanding of the whole development process enables them to empathise and to be proactive in achieving our desired outcomes. Each individual within the organisation have their strengths and are at all times a pleasure to work with. A great team.
I have used RDC for many years and always found them to be creative, flexible, efficient, and quick to respond. They are able to translate briefs into effective development layouts first time, and provide competitive commercial solutions that translate into great places. The team are able to work with existing design codes but are very capable of creating attractive layouts and street scenes from scratch. I have had no hesitation in recommending RDC to a variety of clients as I know they will be able to provide a great level of service.
Orbit have enjoyed working with RDC for ten years. They have served our land department and facilitated planning and detailed design for new developments. On the whole we continue to utilise RDC’s services as this provides a huge benefit to the success to our direct build developments. From the top down we have always found employees at RDC extremely helpful and knowledgeable in land, planning and detailed design. Over all a pleasant group of people who are always pleasant to work with.
Easy to work with and very responsive, we hope that our working relationship continues.
Having worked with the team at RDC on a number of housing projects the team have always ably assisted me in our planning negotiations responding in a timely manner when amendments are required and always maintaining a positive attitude throughout.
Nottingham have been working with RDC for a number of months now on several major residential development schemes. The result has been well designed schemes that comply with planning requirements which have been turned around in good time to meet deadlines. Simon and colleagues are very approachable and good communicators, meaning it has been a pleasure to work with them and has made it easy to make any small tweaks to perfect the scheme.
I have known RDC as a Consultant for 3 years. Talavera Estates have employed RDC as Architectural Consultants on a number of Masterplanning projects ranging from 350 to 650 units. RDC carry out Masterplanning and design services for us, working closely with us to optimise the scheme. They work closely with the Project Team taking into account the views of specialist consultants and acting accordingly to include any specialist advice within their schemes, a task in which they have been very successful. We have found their schemes to be pragmatic with an eye for commercial reality but they also demonstrate creative ability. Accordingly I am pleased to recommend RDC to you.
I have been employing RDC for the last 5 years as Architectural Designers and Planners and in that role have been fully satisfied with their work and dedication. They have undertaken feasibility schemes and taken sites through the planning process to obtain consent. This includes the preparation of presentation drawings and graphics for public consultation events as well as the drawings typically required for planning applications. They liaise closely with my planning consultants and in-house colleagues and work extremely well together in preparing applications from small to large sites. Their fees are competitive but it is their attention to detail and willingness to work closely with us as a customer that is important to us. I have no hesitation in recommending them to you in this role.
I have been employing RDC for the last 7 years as Architectural Designers and Planners and continue to have enormous respect for this company. They undertake all of my land bid appraisal layouts in the Midlands and East regions and when successful they continue to obtain planning consent and later to prepare full working drawings for each project. They prepare presentation drawings for board approval, masterplanning, CGI’s together with pre application packages for each site. They liaise closely with my planning consultants and consulting engineers and work extremely well together in preparing applications from small to large sites. Their fees are competitive but it is their attention to detail and the way in which they deal with us as a customer which makes the difference. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to you.
