Working with ACJ

I have worked on a number of projects with ACJ Group in the last few years. I have found their technical staff to be very knowledgeable, experienced and professional. They pay attention to the details of the project and work to provide a practical solution. On top of that they are really good to work with, really friendly and approachable, and willing to answer all my questions.

I went to ACJ Group to build a house of my design on a plot of land that I owned, a lot of builders insisted that we build their house design or even that we built on a plot which they owned but ACJ was more than happy to oblige us. James, Gary, and their team made us very welcome and helped with everything from the planning phase all the way through to the current stage of almost at second fit, they suggested improvements to our design or changes for structural reasons.

Their design was elegant and clever, and took account of exactly what we asked of them. Now that the house is built we are absolutely delighted with the way it makes the most of light and views to offer an outstanding home. Throughout the build process ACJ kept in regular contact with us relating to the various stages of the process, and whenever the inevitable snags were hit, we managed to work a way through them together.

On down sizing and purchasing a small plot with building permission we contacted A Cormack House Builders for a kit house. To be built to our requirements. Plans were drawn up by their design team which were agreed upon. We are pleased to say quality of materials and workmanship after sales service was first class and we are delighted with our new home and I say this having had experience in the building trade.

I contracted ACJ Design - ACJ Group to build a three bed bungalow for me in January 2018. The foundation work started in March 2018 and was wind and watertight by 15th June 2018. Up to the wind and watertight stage I have found ACJ to be very professional and easy to deal with. Any requested changes by me to the original plans were acted upon without fuss.

We approached ACJ as we liked their designs online although we wanted to design our own build. We used them for Architectural Services and Planning Approval. We were delighted with the service James and Gary provided and the time taken with us to reach our final drawings. They did all the paperwork for applying for Planning permission which was approved. We can recommend them for these services with pleasure.

We already had plans for our new build house before approaching ACJ. James and Gary provided a reasonable quote for full build services in a timely manner. James has taken our plans through to achieving building warrant approval, dealing with various issues in the process. We have chosen ACJs 'Therm-u-wall' high performance timber frame product which should provide a higher quality and more energy efficient building. We now look forward to progressing through the build stage.
