We Really Liked His Manner

Customer reference for Joe Fallon Design as told to pickapro by Gemma Doyle from New Ross, Wexford on 30-Apr-2015

When was the work done?
The work was carried out in 2009.

What was involved?
We needed an architect to draw up the plans for our house.

How did you choose Joe Fallon Design?
We would have known Joe down through the years and I was happy to give him the work and let him draw up the plans

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Joe Fallon?
We did to a certain extent and roughly drew up a plan but the local councillors said we would not get planning permission for it. We then went to Joe and asked him if he could help us put together a plan that would be approved.

Did Joe introduce new ideas?
He did, yes. Joe was very helpful with suggestions about what would be acceptable with regards to planning permission but he also likes to get ideas from the clients as well.

How did the project run?
Joe was very easy to work with and he was really on the ball. He oversaw the project as it was going on but he wasn't onsite as a project manager. We were very happy with the suggestions that Joe put forward to us and the fact that we could reach him anytime we needed to. Joe is very approachable, friendly and we really liked his manner.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Joe Fallon Design?
A couple of things really. First of all it was Joe's approach, he's a very down to earth person. If he thinks that something won't work for you, he'll honestly tell you. The second benefit we found with Joe was his accessibility. If we ever had a problem or needed to make changes, he was always at the end of a phone. It was never a problem to get through to him.

Would you recommend Joe Fallon Design to others?
Yes, I would recommend Joe to family and friends.

Any tips for other people?
I think it's very important to listen carefully to your architect. Prior to working with Joe, I couldn't understand why we had been turned down for planning permission. 9 times out of 10 the architects know what will be acceptable for planning permission because it's their job.
