Testimonials

Multiple projects for Cavanna Homes Michael Newman, Head of Design, Cavanna Homes

“LHC are fantastic at working with all the other consultants and engineers to tie it all together so each layer of the planning application makes sense and all relate to one another.

“Because of our long working relationship, they understand the ‘Cavanna way’ so it saves time and money on both sides and they are always at the end of the phone giving us expert advice when it’s most needed.”

South Yard Masterplan & Oceansgate Marine Industries campus Gareth Simmons, Strategic Projects Director, Plymouth City Council

“LHC were appointed right at the outset to understand the site and how to masterplan the it for the future. LHC were instrumental on being able to advise us on what the site was able to deliver in terms of buildings and more importantly what was possible in this historic site.

“LHC have been by our sides all our way through and they were able to see that as a council and client that we needed to provide jobs for an ever-growing population. They’re not just giving us ‘advice in a bubble’, they know our plan really well and they always understand what is needed.”

West Carclaze Garden Village, Cornwall John Hodkin, Managing Director, Eco-Bos

“West Carclaze is taking a site that is surplus to China clay production requirements and turning it into something that gives economic, social and ecological benefits. It’s really about creating a new community here in mid-Cornwall.

“About 8 years ago we realised we had to get an architect on board who could support us on the principles and design we wanted to deliver, not only on the built areas but also the green spaces and sustainability. After looking around for quite a while we realised that LHC was an obvious choice.”

“Along with LHC we created a vibrant hub where companies as small as a one-man-band, up to twelve people come to work and we have the space and facilities to support their growth within the STEMM sector.”

“LHC take my slightly crazy and over ambitious ideas and turn them into sustainable and commercially viable buildings that are great for our clients.”

Interior Space Planning, Rolle Estate Office Fiona Fitzpatrick, Exec Asst to Estate Director

Utilising LHC’s expertise for a staff consultation process was key. Ian’s [Noakes] gentle manner facilitated open conversations and discussions, which enabled all staff to feel valued and listened to. We are delighted with the end result. We have added four extra desks to our open workplace and managed to create a great ‘sense of space’. We eliminated lighting glare issues and maximised storage. All resulting in a much happier team. Thank you!

South West Energy Centre, South Devon College Laurence Frewin, Vice Principal Corporate Services

Overall, a fantastic service and in particular we value the outstanding relationship we have with Mark Daley. However the other LHC staff on the project were excellent and Ian Noakes also deserves particular mention. We are delighted with the award winning building which fulfils the vision and ambition we had at conception. LHC have provided, yet again, an outstanding service from initial concept and vision through detailed design, construction and post-handover. Their understanding of our needs, high expectations and desire for a landmark project really shows in the final product. They understand our needs as a College and how a building and space in Further Education should work to provide outstanding resources and consequently the very best learning experience for our students and working environment for our staff.
