"We have worked with this practice over many years and have found their ability to translate planning constraints into workable schemes to be excellent. They have a very strong relationship with the local planning authority which is respected by senior officers in planning."
Chris Whelan, Group Business Development Director, Paragon Community Housing Group Ltd.
"In all areas, Clive Chapman Architects are extremely proficient in terms of not only design and imagination, but also in the more mundane areas of meeting deadlines, cost effectiveness and cost control, providing the local planners with all the required information, forms, plans etc. and in particular in keeping me, the client, on the straight and narrow. They are very good at informing and guiding the client, and meeting timelines and deadlines has always been impressive."
Adrian Harris, Former Investment Property Manager at Eton College.
"The firm is run by Clive Chapman who we have known for a long long time. They did our previous office, this office, and are doing our new development. They are good, very pleasant and imaginative - we would not consider using anyone else."
Peter Mason, Director, Healix Group of Companies.
"All of the details have been carefully thought through from a heritage perspective in close consultation with the Council and the applicants architects and heritage consultant. The details genuinely seek re-establish the historic interior, as required by the original permission, whilst providing a clear and logical hierarchy of age and styles through the use of details and materials…. The proposed works are considered welcome in repairing and refurbishing back into beneficial use this Grade II* listed building on the Building at Risk register’"

"Clive and his team have been outstanding throughout this project and we would not hesitate to recommend them."
Andrew Kirkwood, Director, Snakes & Ladders Ltd.
"We can highly recommend Clive Chapman Architects. Their presentation at interview far outshone the national firms, and the work they have done with us in formulating the brief and in the early stages of the design have reflected the same level of quality: excellent listening skills, sensitivity to our needs as a client, reliability (Keeping to agreed schedules), flexibility in response to our changing circumstances. Sustainability is one of our highest priorities and it was significant to us that one of the members of the team is a specialist in this field, so we are confident that this ethos will be woven through the whole of the design. Overall, we have the impression that Clive and his associates are 'on our side', working with us, and supporting us as we discern more fully the needs of the project. Their sensitivity to the group 'process' involved in a large number of people coming to a decision is quite exceptional. It is a pleasure to work with Clive and his colleagues, and we are confident they will do all they can to help us towards a successful outcome for the project."
The Trustees of the Church Extension Association, St Michael's Convent, Ham.
"Over the last 12 months I have worked very closely with Clive Chapman Architects to achieve full planning for 14 flats luxury apartments, developed within my property, as a gated development, converted from commercial offices to residential.
This was a fairly complex and technical, architectural project, extending upward one whole floor and outwards into the car park, this project has over doubled the size of my property.
We achieved full planning and at all points of the project, the whole team at Clive Chapman were proactive, attentive, responsive and hugely helpful in all the areas of the project where I was inexperienced, bringing a wealth of expertise in all the right departments, this made the whole project not only substantially profitable, but very smooth and ultimately enjoyable.
Clive Chapman Architects afforded me a 1st Class Service and a beautifully designed architectural development."
Brandon Ray, Director of Monkey Puzzle Marketing Ltd.
Perhaps the best testimony to our performance is that the majority of our commissions are new projects for existing clients.
