I am really happy with the service and the help that John @ Discount Plans Ltd has given us. My mother first used Discount Plans for her loft extension a few years ago and she recommended them to me. I have recently used them for my ground floor extension plans, and I can't recommend them enough.John has been brilliant in explaining everything to me in the level of detail that I need, and going well beyond the call of duty in helping me get everything lined up and the project off the ground. Thanks so much. More...

John D is very helpful and nothing is too much bother. A real "find" these days when maybe others are more interested in the fee than the drawings themselves!

John and team have been excellent throughout the whole process, from the initial planning stages to professional, expert drawings and guiding us through what has been, at times, a rather challenging journey with our local Council :) .

John helped us from cradle to grave with our plans for our new home in Chiswick. He advised us and got approval of exactly what we required/wanted over doubling the square footage of our property. He got approval from the planning authority quickly and with no changes, this was not easy as our house in a very strict conservation area!!! John always was there to help with questions anytime weekends etc. Finally his pricing is very competitive and he saved us considerable amounts due to his honesty and way of doing thingsGreat service and when we move again John will be our first port of call for planning/structural assistance. .

It's not often you come across a company that provides a professional personal service at a very reasonable price.It's one thing to be able to draw up plans it's another to have the experience to negotiate the minefield of the local planning department. Discount plans has the latter in spades. John from DP went over and beyond what was asked for, giving very professional advice and service where others have let me down. I really cannot recommend them enough.Did I mention the reasonable price? More...

We were very happy when we found John from Discount Plans LTD to save us from the disastrous situation we were in caused by unprofessional builders. John quoted us £700 for our back extension which could not have been a better deal. We decided to go with John's recommended builders to fix the problem and the results are excellent. We will definitely be using the company again for our loft conversion. Nazifa More...

We called John at DISCOUNT PLANS for a loft conversion and a double story side extension. John was very firm at the beginning of our first call and i was a little stuck back by his straight to the point attitude. John explained everything from getting the best design out of our property to achieve the results we were looking for. John explained that we needed several designs put forward to the planners to get the best results mixing the existing permitted development rights and going for planning after the first stage loft build. We spoke to 6 other Architects and none came up with the results DISCOUNT PLANS came up with. John is truly an expert in this field and highly committed in getting you positive results, as John said "WE DONT DO MICKY-MOUSE DESIGNS" only technical drawings for the professionals. Thank you for all your hard work. More...

I can highly recommend Discount Plans LTD for the average homeowner that does not need getting ripped off by other Architects. John quoted us £900 for a full building regulation package including structural calculations. We were getting quoted £3000 which was the same price as building the dormer shell!!! The drawings that were produced are the best drawings we have ever seen, even the building inspectors praised the quality of work. We were able to get quotes from various builders from John's drawings which was perfect as we were not held to ransom by other builders which did not have a clue about planning law or what we could achieve with the best internal layout to suit our living requirements. We actually went with john's recommendation of builders and in 4 weeks we had a completed dormer to stick our two boys up there. Lee M. More...

We have employed the services of John and the Discount Plans Ltd after having been delayed for weeks by another architect. As soon as we made a contact and had the initial discussion we were so happy to have found a professional that was clear on the timelines, prices and services that will be offered.

John and his team have helped us to produce all the required drawings for a loft conversion and a side-turn extension. All the required paperwork was ready and delivered to us within the agreed timelines with no delays.

We have initially received a rejection from a planning department on the side-turn extension. John has supported and helped us to understand the details on the decision and helped in re-applying.

We are very grateful to John and his team, in providing the support and help in a difficult situation and taking personal interest and care in checking on the progression of the project, which we are yet to complete.

We would highly recommend Discount Plans Ltd to anyone who is looking for a professional architect that would take care of your needs and deliver the highest level of service.

I am so happy we hired John at Discount Plans Ltd for the works we needed for our three bedroom house. John turned our three bedroom semi into a five bedroom family home with an amazing 50sqm2 ground floor extension to the rear. We were looking for Architects in the area and all of them were so expensive. John made the plans work for us and in two weeks were building. All design works came under permitted development so no planning permission was needed. The builders needed help on site and John guided them through the process of setting out the main structural elements. I will be using them for the next project which will be an outbuilding in the near future. Thank you John. More...

John is a very detailed person in design; he helped us with his extension from start to finish. All plans completed for £800 compared to £2500 we have been quoted. The other Architect we used did not even know how to draw up building regulation drawings so we had to spend a load of money again and DISCOUNT PLANS done the whole lot for a fraction of the cost.

Q&A

I started DISCOUNT PLANS 15 years ago after working in various structural engineering offices in central London at the age of 18. Mostly in freelance positions, changing from job to job at a yearly rate. I quickly lost my motivation working for big bosses looking for profits constantly. I decided I needed a change and wanted to help MY clients in a way that would benefit them. I saw a gap in the market where I knew I could make a difference. Every day I saw clients being treated badly by these companies I was working for. These high street company’s were taking advantage of the naive client’s which did not know the process, adding hidden fees, charging for endless amendment’s, charging for additional drawings, charging 5 times the amount I actually charge to my clients today for simple bog standard designs.

My company hit it off when the 2008 recession came in when home-owners were not prepared to pay £5000 for a loft design, instead going for us the technical draughtsman at a mere £950 with drawings being designed at a higher standard than the RIBA high-end ARCHITECTS. Our name spread instantly, home-owners were getting more educated by all the daytime TV programmes being screened such as, HOMES UNDER THE HAMMER (which we were filmed on in 2012) explaining the methods of using smaller architectural designers to get the job done at a third of the price. A big thank you also for the editor of IDEAL HOMES which listed our company’s services for recommended best designers! My motto, being honest from the outset you get results; our aim is to get in large volume of work in with small profits which helps you and your pocket. Without you we would not be here today so a big thank you to all that have used our services and have recommended us to friends, relatives and others. Regards, John Domenech. Company Director.

Clients such as builders, property owners, developers and estate agents should use our services because we are very highly experienced in planning law and have full inside knowledge in building regulations and use high profile structural engineers to carry out all our design works at a price that suits your pocket.
We have the staff to carry out designs on time and in reasonable time. 3 days in some cases. From start to finish we will look after you to build stage. Even a phone call will save you money as we have expert people to answer your questions.
