Customer reference for Eco Design and Management as told to pickapro by Linda Hogan from -Manooth, County Kildare on 10-Feb-2020

When was the work done?
We engaged Jeremy in autumn 2017 and the work was carried out in 2018.

What was involved?
We wanted to reconfigure and make better use of our kitchen, dining room and study. We weren't building anything new but walls were knocked down and new windows were put in. All that sort of thing.

How did you choose Eco Design and Management?
I got a personal recommendation from a friend of a friend who had used Jeremy a couple of years earlier. I went to see the work in Lucan before I contacted Jeremy. I met up with Jeremy, liked him and got him to do the work. We met with him over October and November and we had the designs by early January. Along with a bit of input from me, Jeremy drew up the tender document but I followed his advice really. Jeremy also arranged for the builders.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Jeremy Kelly?
Well, I had a general concept of an open plan layout but probably needing to change where various things might have to change, such as moving the kitchen from one side of the room to the other and that sort of thing. I had a big conundrum, which was, we have a study that's another separate room. I wanted to keep that connected but also not lose the light in the rest of the house. It was a design issue and a concept that I couldn't quite work out.

Was Jeremy able to help with that?
Absolutely, yes he was.

How did the project run?
The work itself took about 6 weeks to complete and It was effortless. Jeremy project managed the builders and I would have to say he always anticipated issues. With regards to the build, if anything needed to be added, it was and he made sure that all documentation was in order just in case we were planning to sell the house at some stage.

Jeremy was thorough but also very easy to get on with as far as I could see as project manager. He was absolutely uncompromising with the builders, but he had a good relationship with them and they were happy to follow whatever he suggested. I would say at the very end, he saw things that were very minute, finishing type things. Jeremy insisted that they came back and make small adjustments to get it sorted. Jeremy saw things things that I would not have seen. If I had seen them, it's hard to bring it up yourself with the builders. My husband and I wouldn't have the building knowledge and you feel feel like you're being too picky. I can't speak highly enough of Jeremy in that regard.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Eco Design and Management?
His expertise, his thoroughness and the confidence that he gave us that everything was done to the highest standard possible.Within that was the budget because, again, I didn't know whether you should be paying €40 euro for a tap or €200.

Would you recommend Eco Design and Management to others?
Highly. Yes, unambiguously! Jeremy is a lovely person to work with and I couldn't recommend him more highly.
