Fantastic Customer Service

“We chose Michael Aubrey Partnership as they were local.  We were provided with structural drawings with some design ideas for the porch and documents were submitted to the Building Regulations and Planning Offices on our behalf.  We really liked the honesty and commitment to the timescales and the customer service from the start was fantastic compared to other firms.  The design discussions for the porch were free flowing and we felt very much the priority.  Leigh-Ann, Oliver and Andy were great to work with, with great communication to us, the client.  We found the whole process very seamless and the drawings were of great quality and the additional discussions over the design element of the porch was very insightful and gave us different perspectives on the design ideas.  We felt that for this project, Michael Aubrey Partnership were very good in every aspect and we would recommend their services.”

Saved Me The Worry

“Your website clearly showed that you did small jobs like mine, as well as much larger ones.  Leigh-Ann was very professional, knowledgeable and did what she said she would do.  Other companies that I contacted either didn’t get back to me as promised, were vague about the process or just didn’t seem interested.  Michael Aubrey Partnership completed my design as requested and submitted the documents to Building Control on my behalf which saved me the worry of whether I’d done it correctly.”

Martin Price, Warfield

Local Firm

Nuno Leal, Shinfield

Very High Standard

“I would like to say how pleased and impressed I have been, with Leigh-Ann, for the promptness and courtesy of her communications.

I am also very pleased and impressed with Oliver, for his professionalism, diligence, meticulous attention to detail and care.  Not to mention his courtesy, friendly manner and willingness to discuss the problems I have with my wall. 

At no point did Oliver appear to be in a hurry to leave and he was very thorough with the whole survey, particularly with regard to finding cracks (through a barrier of dense growth) that I had not seen. These were also the worst cracks. 

He has produced a very good survey report and in my view is an excellent Engineer and person. My expectations were well exceeded.

As I explained to Oliver, during my career as a senior contracts manager in construction (particularly Groundworks latterly) I have been used to communicating with Consultant Engineers on large scale commercial projects around the country, over several decades.

I did not know what to expect as a small domestic client, but I am extremely satisfied with the service I have received, from Michael Aubrey Partnership. Oliver went to a great deal of effort.

I would be most grateful, if you could forward my comments of appreciation concerning the very high standard of service provided by Michael Aubrey Partnership, to the appropriate senior partner.”

Helpful And Knowledgeable

“Michael Aubrey Partnership were recommended to me to help with my drawings and application to the council.  A feature of the service I found useful was the 3D image of the project and being able to ‘walk around’ the new extension was useful both in seeing the project and making changes.  Also, coming into the office to talk through with Jamie and Andy on the screen, the changes I wanted to make, helped me see things clearer.  Michael Aubrey Partnership stood out from their competitors due to their communication and time taken to discuss our project, within our timescale.  I found everyone very helpful, knowledgeable and able to stick to a timescale, if there were any problems with meeting a deadline then this was explained in advance.  I found everyone professional and good at what they did.  I would recommend to friends and use again if need be”.

Different League

“My builder required a structural report before quoting for the remedial work.  I asked if they had worked with a local structural engineer and Michael Aubrey Partnership were mentioned.  My previous experience, with earlier investigations, was with ‘one man bands’, a Google search suggested that Michael Aubrey Partnership was in an altogether different league! I believe that I now have sufficient information to obtain quotes for appropriate remedial action.”  I would recommend Michael Aubrey Partnership to my colleagues and friends.”
