Had an awesome experience working with Shipra. Was always punctual, honest, reliable, approachable and trustworthy. We had a complex development requiring planning permission, however, once we got Shipra on board everything was clearly explained, and speedily and expertly dealt with.

Always willing to take on board our suggestions, whilst advising us of any costly pitfalls. Extremely knowledgeable of the architectural side, experience shone brightly throughout the planning stages, and the design solutions presented were truly awesome.

An all round pleasant experience, l would highly recommend utilising the excellent architectural and planning services for all your project needs - l know l will gladly and undoubtedly be utilising Shipra for all my future projects

Professional attitude from start to finish- nothing was too much bother especially the amount of re-draws I asked for (even I was getting fed up with me!)

We engaged with Shipra to work with us on design of our extension to the front and back of our house along with a loft conversion. From start to finish Shipra made us feel confident we had the right person for the job. The paperwork for planning was done for us along with details drawings etc. Once we were granted permission Shipra dealt with building control and our chosen builder to ensure we were in the driving seat. I don’t think we were able to do this without Shipra’s help and attention to detail and having the time and kindness to listen to everything we wanted along with a few of her own ideas we had exactly what we were dreaming of. I have no hesitation in recommending Shipra and her team of experts in anyway whatsoever for your next project. More...

Just a small note to say “Thank you” for all of the time, energy, and enthusiasm you put into designing and successfully gaining the planning consent for our ground and first floor front extension. I really appreciate your commitment to your clients, and your ability to make the design as per our needs.

Shipra is knowledgeable, professional, organised and well-established in the field. She was very helpful in showing us different options of designs and was well versed with the planning policies of our area. Thanks again.

We recommend ArorasPractice Ltd without hesitation!

Aroras Practise are a lovely family run business, Shipra worked with us to satisfy all of our hopes on plans for a double storey side extension.
We changed our minds on a few things and Shipra re drew the plans every time to get them exactly right for us. We needed some plans for some internal work done quickly and she got straight to work on them. Nothing was to much to ask for
Her such a lovely lady and a pleasure to work with
We would highly recommend Shipra and her team.
Thank you for all of your hard work.

We got a response from ArorasPractice within an hour of registering with Bark and Shipra came to see us to discuss our needs within 2 days. She is prompt and polite, professional, friendly, helpful. We have no experience with building works but she has been wonderful with helping us refine our plans and helping us to make the best of the area we are working with to give us everything we wanted.
We would have no hesitation using ArorasPractice again and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Mrs Arora was always punctual, thorough and kept me updated with everything. All details were explained in depth and she offered useful advice throughout the process. I would definitely recommend.

Q&As

Garage conversion is mainly carried out to create an additional habitable room- perhaps a home office/ additional reception room/ guest room etc.
-It would be ideal if the garage can have a window in place of the shutter and one access connection from the house.
-Structural engineer's advice for strengthening of existing foundations
-All utilities- heating/ electrics are extended from the main house.

Measure survey
Design discussion
Design drawings and specifications for building control application
Structural engineer's advice for strengthening of existing foundations

Loft conversion is mainly carried out to create an additional habitable room- a home office/ additional bed room with ensuite etc.
-It would be ideal if the loft can have a dormer window in place of a skylight.
-Structural engineer's advice for strengthening of existing floor joists.
-Space to allow for new stairs from the first floor without compromising any of the existing bedrooms.

Satisfaction to see the clients happy face once their work is done.

my work- my ethics
We are a small family run business and take up projects where we feel we can genuinely help the client.

I think the reviews say it all- We are friendly, very punctual and prompt and provide an excellent professional service and are always a phone call away.

I prefer to meet and see the site in person.
I can carryout design discussions online and exchange drawings via emails etc but one visit for me is very important so I can understand the existing built environment and create my design accordingly.

My first site visit is mainly a face to face interview to understand the needs and requirements from the space intended.
The visit is shortly followed by a measure survey which lasts about an hour and from then on I work from my office and interact with the client via phone calls and email.
I submit on remotely/ online on their behalf the planning and building control applications and all discussions are carried out on phones.
