We first used Progressive Design to build a garage and summer room 4 years ago and were pleased with the results, so we contacted PD again when we finally got planning permission for a large extension to our house. We also invited 3 other companies to bid on our project, but ultimately chose PD. T... More...

Marius and his team were a pleasure to have around for no less than 9 months. They worked extra hard to accommodate us still living in our home as they created one room from three downstairs, converted our garage into an annexe, fitted a new kitchen and created a new loft conversion with bedroom, dressing area and bathroom. There was always a big team onsite getting the work done. Marius was great at communicating and keeping on top of the project and budget. Their costings were broken down very clearly so there were no hidden shocks along the way. The guys onsite were always friendly and respectful and just great to have around. I would highly recommend them for their professionalism and personable nature but also of course for the great workmanship and finish that they provided. Highly recommend and have already done so to two friends who have also been pleased with their work. More...

Marius & his team (George, Jack, Gabriel etc) recently completed a 7 month full refurbishment of my flat in North West London. I picked Progressive Design (PD) in large part based on the reviews here on Houzz, so it’s only fair I leave my own! It was a total gut of a somewhat tired 3-bed converted V... More...

I have nothing but good things to say about this company, and of its owner Marius. We had our entire house gutted and refibished and the process was quite stressful but the one aspect of it that we never had to worry about was our builders. They were knowledgeable, thorough, dependable and honest.... More...

This is the second time we have used progressive design. The very first time was for small job in the flat and we were so impressed by their work and professional attitude that we decided to use them again when we embarked on the whole flat refurbishment, including changing layout of the flat.

We bought a four-bedroom property and wanted a massive work done - changing the layout, building an extension, and garden works. We went for the usual route of getting quotes from 3 companies which included Progressive Design. Out of the 3, Progressive Design gave us the most impressive and detailed... More...

Recommendations are the best way to assess builders. Progressive Design was used by three people in our family and all gave glowing accounts of their experience (two reports are on this site).

We got them in originally to look at a botched job carried out by another company on a shower leak which...



19 July 2015

Ok….where do I start. Well that’s easy; in summary these guys are the real deal – simple as that! Below will hopefully explain why. We’ve had some smaller jobs completed by the guys at Progressive Design (new bathroom and new porch) - but this was our first big project – a 6m single story rear extension.Quotation Process:-Marius isn’t your typical builder who turns up at your door on a Monday evening to discuss an extension with you that you have literally no idea what the process is to complete such a project. By the end of it you have a far better understanding of how you are able to complete an extension of your dreams. Marius doesn’t simply turn up, look around and go away and quote. He goes through everything with you in minute detail (too much sometimes but you shouldn’t complain!!) - and really turns into your project manager. We were really impressed with his professionalism and the ideas he came up for us which made us really think about how we would proceed. Never was it a problem him to return to discuss the quotation, new ideas, meetings with the architect etc etc – his primary concern is us the customer and ensuring we get the extension we dreamed of. Aside from later which I will go into more detail one of the main reasons we returned to Marius and his team were budget; in those not once did Marius ask for any additional money or have any hidden costs; what he quoted was the final price which was testament to Marius as a project of this size was impressive to ensure this was met. The only additional funds ever were requested were when we asked for additional work etc. But the entire project was priced incredibly competitively compared to the other quotes we had so the decision was easy based on our past projects and recommendations from friends who used them in the past.The Team:-These guys are impressive. They work their socks off!! When you have English workers doing other things in the house it is embarassing to have them in the same building as Marius’s guys who includes his brother Ovidiu – the guys turn up bang on time and stay until they finish the task(s) they came for that day (usually past 18.30). Their work ethic was incredible and only took breaks when they really needed to compared to other tradesmen who had a part to play we often thought they could complete the job days earlier due to the number of coffee and cigarette breaks. An equally important factor were their professionalism – with a job of our size we had to ensure neighbour relations were kept good and they continually made sure that (us as well) was the case; they continually cleaned and kept everywhere as clean as possible. They are ALL the most skilled people I have seen before; the kinds of things they could do baffled us at times and with Marius being over more often that not to check on proceedings, we were 100% confident the whole time with the Progressive Design team. Things of course did not always go to plan (weather, findings within the house beyond our control that nobody would have known about) - but Marius was always accomodating and ensured he found the most cost effective solution for us; as with everyone a budget is there for a reason and he more often came up with the best solution.The project was completed pretty much on time (sooner than I thought which was an added bonus) and my wife and I now can’t believe the space that has been created along with the project being, to our eyes, completed to the highest standards!! In the days (and weeks) of us moving back Marius was always able to drop in to check on any concerns of ours and anything that needed a site visit by his team would (usually) be within the day or certainly 2 days. The team were able to complete about 95% of the works – the only thing were brand new windows/doors which requ More...

Progressive Design's snap line is "exceeding expectations" and they certainly live up to that!

We recently had an extension built as my wife wanted a bigger kitchen than the one we had. They visited us at home and went through everything that would be needed and listened to what we wanted. The qu... More...

I decided to start my own business and wanted to work from home but just didn't have the space. Progressive Design helped me turn my dank, cluttered basement into a beautiful space that now houses not only my office but also a lovely play area for my children, enabling me to be with them in the same space whilst I grow my business. Everything was handled by Progressive Design, it was painless and felt easy. Thank you so much :) More...
