Chris is a pleasure to deal with. He is personable, listens to our needs and addresses them accordingly. I’d highly recommend him.
Would highly recommend!
Reflecting back my initial design brief to Chris wasn’t the greatest, as although I had some ideas in mind I wasn’t entirely sure what exactly I wanted. Despite this, Chris seemed to read my mind and after an hours consultation and a look at our property, came up with an initial design that incredibly ticked all the boxes, and in his own words gave us “bang for the buck.”
From the outset through to receiving planning approval, Chris was a pleasure to work with. Pleasant, prompt, responsive and evidently very experienced made the whole process a pleasure. Chris took all the burden away including the submission of our planning application, which made obtaining approval a breeze.
Would happily use Appropriate Design Solutions again and would wholeheartedly recommend. More...

We approached Chris at Appropriate Design Solutions to design a replacement for a very old barn. He immediately understood our requirements and has been exceptionally proactive throughout the design and planning application process. He is extremely professional whilst being down to earth and easy to get along with. We would definitely use him again and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to others. More...
These guys are great. We contacted Chris Piggott at Appropriate Design Solutions to design a sun/garden room to replace an old uPVC conservatory. He satisfied the brief fantastically by incorporating our ideas and bringing ideas of his own to enhance the whole solution and provide a great living space that is sympathetic to the house and grounds it enhances and provides a realistic solution for our improved home.

Chris from Appropriate Design Solutions has been an absolute pleasure to work with! He is a true professional but also down to earth and makes the process of dealing with building plans much easier and less stressful. He always answers the phone and promptly replies to emails and always offers support with anything regarding the extension we are trying to build. They also act as a liaison between us and the council which is another plus, as it's one less thing to worry about for us. I highly recommend working with this company, they are amazing More...
.....having used Chris from appropriate design solutions I can confidently say that he is one of the most patient designers we have ever had experience with. We wanted to build an extension on our grade 2 listed cottage, This could not be a normal one so we were recommended to speak to Chris. What followed was an enlightening view of how the planning process is run, and clear advice of how we are best to 'play this game' Chris has many years of experience and he patiently advised us on what was reasonable and what we should expect through the process. I would wholeheartedly recommend Chris to anyone who has an extension of alteration to their home which requires a little more attention to detail. He has a great way of explaining things into laymen's terms and gives the confidence that is so needed when dealing with the mystical forces of planning council departments. More...
Chris is a talented and easy to get along with person who took a genuine interest in my project. This all shone through in the quality of the design and getting my planning permission accepted.
It is a great pleasure to work with Appropriate Design Solutions. Chris has been proactive from the outset and demonstrated invaluable knowledge of the planning process, structural engineering principles and product. He quickly understand our somewhat vague brief and guided us to the perfect design for us, all in a short timescale thanks to the pragmatic design & communication approach. This design wasn't easy as we have a classic 1889 property at the centre with multiple ill-conceived past extensions to rectify and restore the integrity of the original building. More...
