We contacted Paul Lonergan when we decided to convert our loft, and re-model our kitchen/utility area.We discussed ideas, and Paul was both open to our ideas and had a lot of his own great suggestions on how to best use the space.He showed us sketches and then once we decided what to go for he prepared full drawings and spec lists. Then Paul applied for planning and organised everything with building control throughout the job.Throughout the build process Paul made periodic visits to ensure that things were progressing to plan.We would not hesitate to recommend Paul.

Just about to complete a single storey kitchen extension and couldn’t be more pleased with the service we received from Lindsey and her team. She’s very much a phone person with a very good understanding of the need to keep the momentum going on a project. If you email her with a question you’re highly likely to hear your phone ring shortly after. If the builders need a nudge in the right direction again she’s on the phone to them right there and then. No nonsense about numerous meetings for each little change as you might get with other companies. She’ll introduce you to as many building teams as you feel you need quotes from. These building teams come with her personal recommendation as she has many of her own building projects ongoing in parallel that she contracts them for so can recommend them from experience. Same applies to materials providers, particularly doors and windows which is very helpful when you’re not sure which suppliers to trust. And of course there’s the planning and approval stages where Lindsey has many years of experience ‘collaborating’ with the council teams so has experienced all the common hurdles and barriers and can advise you on how to avoid them. Hedgehog Development really do provide an ‘above and beyond’ service and I am pleased to recommend Lindsey and the team.

Architectural Design that Cares
From my very first contact, my experience with the whole team at LPS created a sense of relief, I had finally found a company who were polite, proactive, helpful, and knowledgeable, most of all extremely good at what they do. I welcomed their honest approach to what is, the minefield of Planning in the UK. Simply put: If they make a promise, they fulfil it. No other company that I have ever dealt with in any aspect of life have always answered their phone, on the rare occasion that the call should go to answerphone, a follow up by phone or email swiftly followed, a small thing maybe, but welcomed and appreciated. Their extended hours of work/availability are a breath of fresh air too. On site visits and at meetings with other professionals, I found them to be straight talking and a joy to work with. I had wasted plenty of money and valuable time working with less than professional ‘experts’ who strung me along, no doubt with many other clients and in the end did not deliver, which is both frustrating and costly. If you are looking for a group of professionals who genuinely care about their clients and the service they so capably provide, I suggest having a conversation with LPS. I remain grateful for your service, professionalism and getting the result you set out to achieve.’

Drawing Inc provides advice on all levels of architectural services. Geoff Eaton is an architect with 30 years of experience in the residential, commercial and retail sectors. Drawing Inc offers the necessary services to enable clients to achieve practical and economic solutions for their expectations. Planning and Building control as well as contractor liaison services.
I find this to be one of the most satisfying careers possible as I get to meet different people along the path of a development - the client who has an idea of what they wish to achieve but is unsure about how to get there, planners who understand that we need to achieve a design but must also ensure that it complies with planning policy, contractors who need to be able to achieve the goal whilst still staying compliant with regulations in both building and health and safety. And all of the other consultants, advisers and contractors along the way. Ultimately being able to take a spark of an idea to begin with and turn that idea into a reality is one of the best feelings in the world. Add to this the fact that every project is different and so presents its own set of challenges, and this provides a job that is always changing, always challenging and always moving.
What inspired you to start your own business?
The need to provide a professional service, tailor-made to each client that whilst still following a well-worn pattern of applications and approvals offers each client the maximum in terms of the thought process and options, all in an effort to achieve something that will change their lives or at the very lease the way they live their lives.
Why should our clients choose you?
Ultimately I offer a professional service. The drawing services I offer are probably no better and no worse than many of my competitors but where I have the edge is the idea(s) that are presented before we get to the final drawings. The way that I approach a challenge and the ability to think outside of the box to provide solutions that not only achieve the basic requirement but try to squeeze the absolute most out of every possible situation.
