Jeremy really stayed on top of things

Customer reference for Eco Design and Management as told to pickapro by Derek O'Rourke from Clane, CountyKildare on 10-Feb-2020

When was the work done?
The work started in April of 2019 and was completed in August.

What was involved?
It was an inside renovation for most of the house and an old one story extension was built up into a two-story by taking the roof off and adding another level.

How did you choose Eco Design and Management?
When we bought this house six years ago, we had got several quotes for the initial pre-purchase survey project and chose Jeremy. About three or four months later, we added on the single height extension at the back of the house and asked Jeremy to do the drawings for that as well. When we decided to do the renovation and add on to the extension in 2019, we went right back to Jeremy and didn't get any other quotes. Jeremy project managed the builders and has been very helpful throughout.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Jeremy Kelly?
We had, yes but the ideas we had wouldn't gain us the space that were looking for. Jeremy talked us through everything and came up with another plan that would.

Did Jeremy introduce new ideas?
He did yes. Jeremy suggested the downstairs layout and allowed us to hold on to the loads of light coming in from our windows while still giving us the extra space which was our main concern.

How did the project run?
Everything went fine except that there was a bit of a hiccup in the middle but it wasn't Jeremy's fault or the builders. It was the engineer on the project and it had to do with a situation with steel. I think they were held up for about maybe a week-and-a-half. In the end the project was completed to our satisfaction and we're very happy with how it all turned out. Jeremy really stayed on top of things project wise and with us as far as communication. If you send him an e-mail, he'd text you back or called when he was free. I can't remember a time that I couldn't get in contact with him.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Eco Design and Management?
The biggest benefit I found was being able to ring Jeremy and ask him "what do you think" questions. "Should we go with this or that"? It could be about a pump, floors or anything we were unsure about. Just getting a second opinion. Jeremy would always advise us and answer any questions we had. That's one of the reasons I would recommend. Jeremy was really invested in the project and it was very personal at the end.

Would you recommend Eco Design and Management to others?
I would of course, yes and I have already.
