Testimonials and Expressions of Thanks


Your support in taking us through the process has made it straight forward for us and more importantly helping us to achieve a design which looks great and will be suitable for our needs in future. We also appreciate your consideration in taking into the backdrop of COVID-19 whilst completing the application.

Bernard & Lynne


Myself and Mike just wanted to say thank you again for all of your efforts in what you have done for us; from producing the plans to get the best out of our home, through the process of getting the plans through the planning committee and supporting us through all of our queries. We found you easily contactable and very approachable for any queries we had; you’ve become more of a friend than a service provider. It has helped us change our home to become our perfect forever home.

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.

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.

Chief Executive, 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.

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.

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 you Alan.

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 planning minefields.

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

Atherstone, Warwickshire


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 fulsome thanks.

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 to you.

 ‘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 you enough.’


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.’


M T Beasley

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!!’

C Ives

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.'
