Testimonials and Expressions of Thanks
We are very pleased
that we got approval, currently talking to some builders to get quotes, should
start April ‘ish’ next year. Thank you
very much for your excellent work on this.
John & Nicky
Our Company have had
the pleasure of working with Alan on a number of projects over many years. In all instances Alan has been incredibly
responsive. He has provided detailed
drawings and expert advice to support our projects, ensuring that they have run
in an organised and timely manner at every stage.
Mrs L Smith
Polesworth Group Homes Ltd
Thank you Alan for
creating our wonderful bungalow for us, this was something we had always
dreamed of doing. When we started this project we wanted an Architect who had
vision and offered us ideas, you did that in abundance.
Without your skills
and knowledge we would not have been able to overcome all the unforeseen
problems we encountered during its construction.
Jean and Richard
Alan has shown his
knowledge and skill to produce a design for us which gives something a little
different from what we would otherwise have had. The design enhances the house
in many ways and makes it stand out from others in the road whilst still
blending in with the area. His work has been first class and he has been
extremely helpful to us. Should we ever require more work doing we would
not hesitate to contact him again.
Lesley and Paul
I have no hesitation
in recommending Alan who has completed the design, planning and permissions for
two of our extensions. His expertise was invaluable in recommending the
best design and he has the skill to bring the plans to life so that the
numerous change of specification we threw at him could be resolved early in the
process . We had regular comments that our kitchen had the WOW factor and
I am looking forward to similar comments for our next extension. Thank
Lisa and Paul
At a time when being
an 'expert' can seem to make one unapproachable, you were able to explain the
design options in words the layman could understand, thus enabling the
decisions that must be made, far less onerous. We are firm in the view that
you have guided us gently through not only the design process but also the potential
John and Wendy
Higham on the Hill,
Jessica and I would like to say thank you for all your help
regarding the planning of our two storey extension. Building work is well
underway, to the point where we are preparing for plastering and kitchen
installation. It really is looking good and the guidance and vision you
provided was extremely useful.
David and Jessica
I can hardly believe it!!!!
I have to thank you for making this
possible as, without the transition through planning there would not have been
a building project and certainly, if there had been there is a good
chance it would have been, as they say, a camel (being a horse
designed by committee).
It can only be because of the more than
thorough explanation you gave of the situation and the more than full
exposition you gave of all the arguments......I can hardly thank you enough and
it seems, possibly, that you had gently 'closed the door' on their options?
With the very kindest regards and
Susan, Richmond Upon Thames.
Wembrook Builders Ltd have worked with
Alan C Riley Associates on numerous construction projects, over many years,
where Alan has been the Architect. The projects have been a mixture in size and
complexity, the service received, the quality & clarity of the drawings,
and the attention to detail has always been exemplary. Alan has a vast
knowledge of construction, & construction techniques. He has the ability to
work on traditional designs as well as some exciting imaginative out of the box
thinking projects. He has a real skill for bringing together a design that
meets all the clients requirements intertwined with the individual site
restraints. I use Alan myself and would have no hesitation in recommending Alan

‘I wanted to write and thank you from
the bottom of my heart for the incredible work you have done which has enabled
us to achieve such a fantastic new building.
Words cannot express how proud we are of
our wonderful premises. You are certainly a talented architect who
had the ability to listen to our needs and requests and deliver exactly what we
required. Thank you for also managing the timing of the project and
keeping a close eye on costs. From the start of the project to its
completion it has been a pleasure to work with you.
One of my greatest joys is that during
our ten year association I have gained a good and dear friend.’

‘Just a quick note to say Thank You for
all your help in getting the extension plans passed.
We are over the moon and cannot thank
Lynne & Dale, Kenilworth
‘On behalf of the Trustees and members
of our Church it is my pleasant duty to thank you for the devoted service you
have given to us throughout the fundamental preparation for the redevelopment
of our premises. Speaking for Graham Harris and myself we have
enjoyed our meetings with you which have helped us understand the ins and outs
of planning and building regs and so on. Thank you too for the
introduction to Salus; I am sure it will be a great asset to have them
supervising the project as it progresses. As an aside, I have just
the typed in the date above, I find it hard to believe so much time has passed
since we came to ask you if you would become our Architect. It is
with your help that our members have moved from a pessimistic “We are getting
nowhere!” to “When shall we start the work?” Be sure that when we
have the Grand Re-opening yours will be the first name on the invitation list.’

Wesleyan Reform Church, Nuneaton
‘I just wanted to say our extension is
all done and dusted and we’re thrilled with it. So, if you ever
fancy having a look please feel free to pop in!
…Thanks for all your help and guidance,
as it’s such a big thing and when it’s not your own area of expertise you’re so
dependent on others.’
Lesley & Charlie, Warwick
‘Well Done!!! I don't know what to say as we thought this day would never
come! I see permission is in place for 3 years, but assume we are
able to renew it if required.
Once again very well done for remaining cool, I think we will have to get together
at some point and celebrate!!’
Managing Director, Shirley’s Garage, Meriden
I have known Alan for nearly 30 years by
working with him on a number of contracts and found his experience and work to
be of the highest standard.
His understanding of the clients’
requirements and dealing with difficult planning situations is outstanding.

‘The board wish to express their sincere
thanks for all your efforts in providing the plans and other work you have done
on our behalf - on so many occasions’.
Coventry Boys’ Club, Coventry
I just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail
to say thank you so so much for all your time and amazing efforts yesterday.
The children when you left sat in pretty much absolute silence while they wrote
all about the things you had shown them (and that's a near miracle!) It shows
how much information they took on board for them to be able to do that. Your
presentation was fabulous and covered so much that will help them moving
forward with their projects. I apologise that they were so chatty but that's
mainly due to the fact that they just all wanted to talk about the things you
featured during the session. It was so generous of you to not only visit but to
prepare, and leave with us, resources. It was extremely kind of you and I
cannot thank you enough.
All Saints’ Primary School and Nursery, Nuneaton
As a contractor who specialises in
school interior works we have instructed Alan C Riley Associates on many
occasions to prepare drawings for projects including the
reorganisation of interiors to create new teaching spaces and for new office
lay outs. We are always pleased to use Alan Riley and find his product
knowledge and service to be second to none.'
