“We hired JAM Architects to design a significant single story extension to our rural three bedroom bungalow, comprising of a small extension to the front in order to add an ensuite and a large extension to the rear, with a utility room and large open plan kitchen, dining area and family room and the existing kitchen becoming a fourth bedroom and WC.
Prior to engaging John from JAM Architects, we spent a lot of time struggling to try and work out how we could fit everything in, however John spent time with us in order to understand our requirements and was then quickly able to turn our ideas into a range of options, giving us various choices in relation to the layout and cost.
Once we had chosen our desired layout John submitted our drawings to the planning department and due to his obvious experience and attention to detail was able to get the plans approved without any real issues. The same could also be said with the building warrant application, as John worked closely with building control in order to ensure that we got the go ahead to build.
Our extension is now well underway and John’s detailed plans have been invaluable to the builders, however he is still on hand to assist when they have any questions.
Thanks to John, our extension has been a pleasurable and exciting experience rather than a stressful and worrying one.
We could not recommend John and his company highly enough.”

“We first met with JAM architects (John) at a Homebuilding and Renovation show in the summer of 2011 and were immediately attracted to the schematics which were on display; they ticked all the boxes in terms of what we were looking for in a design. Our initial interest was strengthened on talking with John about our ideas (and his) and we invited him to visit our property and tender for the project. The quality of presentation of his proposals and range of ideas were excellent and they really brought to life what our “dream home” could look like. We particularly liked the fact that John built his suggestions and ideas into the proposal; design detail we would never have considered but which really enhanced and complemented our ideas. We have engaged JAM architects to design our dream home and have worked with both John and Murdoch to obtain, in a very short space of time, initial planning permission. We are now working on the detailed designs; suddenly our dream home is becoming a reality.”

“We invited a number of architects to consider the wrap-round extension we were planning and were immediately impressed with John’s professionalism and imaginative ideas.JAM saw the process through from planning to completion and we were delighted with the end result. John helped us in choosing the builder and supervised the work making regular visits and keeping us up to date with the progress. He worked hard to overcome the inevitable bumps and unforeseen problems that arise and always found a solution that worked for us and the builders. John was always polite and professional in his approach and we would not hesitate to employ him again or to recommend him to a friend.”

“I have worked with John and Murdoch for the last 12 months on various projects and have found them to be very professional, personable and above all very easy to work with. You can get architectural flair when you want it or just good straight- forward practical design solutions. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for architectural services.”

“We have now worked with JAM Architects for over 3 years and their attention to detail and quality of service is outstanding. For an architecture practice that has only been in existence for 3 years, their knowledge of planning policy, design and building standards is similar to firms that have been in existence for twenty years.”
