“I’d just like to say what a pleasure it was working with Lewis Smith. For the first visit he was on time and very helpful and was quick to write and email his report.Once the work he had suggested had been carried out he came back and once again was very prompt to write a new report to confirm that all works had been carried out to his spec. Thank you. “

Mr R MIllbery

Ian Locke

“From our initial inquiry, Andrew at REA was extremely helpful, thorough, and gave sensible, practical advice. He seamlessly guided our building project from initial conception, through to planning permission, followed by building regulation approval. We would not hesitate to recommend him to others.”

Mr & Mrs Bowles

“I have worked with the team at REA for over 10 years and have always found them to be professional, responsive and practical in their approach to design. I would thoroughly recommend them for domestic and commercial building projects.”

Mr P Davis

“We work with R. Elliott and Associates on most projects and now have a five year working history on projects in the New Forest, stretching down to Somerset. The quality of information produced by REA is very detailed and the firm is very creative in coming up with solutions to issues that can arise during the production of construction information.”

Natalie Skeete, Forest Architecture

“Jodie worked with us to produce existing and proposed plans for our home renovation project. Jodie listened to what we wanted, gave us constructive and professional guidance, and produced easy to understand plans to the agreed timescale. Jodie made the planning permission process seem easy and stress-free – she was always available for our queries, taking the time to put things into layman’s terms for us! In short, we highly recommend Jodie.”
