Steve listened very carefully to our requirements and offered 3 very different ideas, enabling us to focus on what we did and didn’t want. Each visit and consultation was thought provoking, never rushed and extremely thorough. The level of detail in the final plans have enabled us to get some detailed pricing from builders and seamless interaction with our kitchen designer. Unknown to us at the time of choosing builders and kitchen designers, both had independently worked with Steve on other projects and have the same high regard for the practice and Steve’s attention to detail. Highly recommend.

Cannot recommend Steve Gratrix and the team at Knight Gratrix highly enough. Everyone that was involved in our project was very professional and courteous. Steve took the time to ensure that he had a full understanding of exactly what we wanted to achieve through converting the loft space and adding an extension to our house. This was apparent in the highly detailed plans that he produced and even sent us several different designs to demonstrate possible options. Our builder commented on how well defined the drawings were and easy to understand. Steve was always available on the telephone to answer any questions and to come to our house to discuss the plans. We are delighted with the improvements that have been made to our home as a result of Steve's design and wouldn't hesitate to use him again should we have any future requirements.

From start to finish of our house renovation project Steve and the team at Knight Gratrix were incredibly helpful and professional. Steve created a design that has worked perfectly and we wouldn’t change anything. Knight Gratrix also project managed for us which proved to be a good decision and made for a seamless project delivery. Can highly recommend.

Steve and his team have been involved with Caddies since the very beginning - undertaking all architectural design and building control consultancy to an incredibly high standard. Steve was passionate for the project, and went above and beyond all expectations - we look forward to working with him and his team more over the coming years.

We were recommended to Knight Gratrix by a builder friend due to the quality and detail of their drawings. Steve Gratrix dealt with us through the whole process. His knowledge and skill was invaluable. He gave good advice and ideas whilst also listening carefully and patiently to or own ideas and requirements. This has given us a final design that we are 100% satisfied with. I would happily recommend this company.Tim & Carolyn Harman
