I recently needed some emergency diagrams for a Buildings Consent application. Douglas was really understanding and got the diagrams drawn up quickly so my application could progress. I can't recommend him enough. Thanks Douglas!! I will be sure to contact you again next time I need an architect. More...

As the owner of a building company which has worked with Douglas Strachan Architects I have always found them to be very imaginative in design with a strong sense of balance for the environment, use and surrounding buildings. Douglas and his team are very approachable and present a fantastic service which starts with design and follows through the job to completion ensuring a mutually agreeable arrangement with the builder and the client. I would highly recommend. More...

Douglas Strachan and his team have recently provided me with both detailed plans and exploratory concept sketches for different elements of the same project. The project involves the refurbishment of a listed building and an element of new construction to create a mixed use site which has a lot of elements to consider including it being considerate of the town centre site with all its historic references, commercially viable and aesthetically pleasing not only to me as the client but the local community. The process of working with Douglas has been an interesting and enjoyable one that has resulted in a set of drawings that have both captured my initial concept for the project and also introduced new ideas and a fresh perspective to the design. Douglas has sorted the statutory consents for the first phase of the project and we have just received the formal building warrant documents so we can now move forward and turn the initial concepts into reality. I am really looking forward to working with Douglas as he helps manage the project as the first stage goes on site very soon. More...

As a landscape gardener, I worked in collaboration with Douglas Strachan and his team during a barn renovation. His communication and ideas helped us complete the project on time and to a high standard.

Douglas was pleasant, knowledgeable, prompt and reassuring when dealing with the planning permission required for our replacement windows in a conservation area.

Douglas helped my wife and I with a planning application to upgrade the windows of my listed flat in Edinburgh. He gave us the confidence to proceed and handled the whole process, which was successful first time. The windows were subsequently installed and we are very pleased with the result. I am pleased to recommend Douglas for his knowledge and personal service. More...

Douglas has advertised with us for many years now and they are a privilege to work with. Going by feedback I have had from my advertisers they couldn't speak highly enough of Douglas and his team.
