A supportive and dynamic service [email protected] | 01248 295 093


From our initial consultation we will work closely with you at all stages of your project; you can be sure of a quality professional service, and one that is tailored to your exact requirements and is distinctive to each individual commission.

Gareth has been a pleasure to deal with, extremely professional and reliable whilst delivering the planning approval on our development, would highly recommend.

Ray Basford Abersoch, Gwynedd

Having an initial planning application rejected on our Grade II listed cottage. I was advised by CADW and the Local Planning Authority to use a conservation architect with an understanding of the listed building consent process.

After discussions with Gareth outlining the issues we had with the planning and with the previous design, we pressed ahead with Gareth to come up with outline proposals and submit a listed building consent that would meet the requirements of CADW and the LPA. Gareth's designs and submission were approved along with a detailed building control submission that was also approved.

Gareth worked tirelessly on our behalf and helped through the often difficult areas associated with gaining Listed Building Consent. I would have no hesitation in recommending BDS Gwynedd.

Rob McMullen Llandygai, Gwynedd

From the initial site visit from BDS Gwynedd they have helped us with design ideas for our sun room, they brought in structural engineers for our steel frame and submitted planning and building regs that were approved in a matter of weeks.

Extremely helpful and always ready and willing to give advice. We are more than happy to recommend BDS to anyone who is looking for the services of an architectural designer.

Jim & Sue Davies Llanbedrog, Gwynedd

BDS Gwynedd have provided an excellent service for us in a professional and timely manner in order for us to gain planning approval for a granny annex. We have been kept well informed throughout the process. They also provided all the information needed for us to comply with current building regulations. I would not hesitate to recommend BDS Gwynedd.

David Hulse Mynydd Llandygai, Gwynedd

We have all been very pleased with the work BDS Gwynedd have done on the plans for our extension.
We have had 2 extensions in the past and both were fraught with problems at the planning stages and it was lovely to see how effortlessly everything went through. I would not hesitate to recommend BDS Gwynedd to anyone needing plans. They are always available and completed all the work very quickly. We were very happy to use their good ideas too.

Susan Hooper Marian Glas, Anglesey

BDS Gwynedd and Gareth Jones helped us with the design and applications for our project. We now have full approval for nine holiday cottages and restoration of a Grade II* farmhouse and his work has been fantastic. We will recommend BDS Gwynedd to anyone in need of an architectural assistance..

Bente Whyatt Llanfairynghoronwy, Isle of Anglesey

We have owned our property in Abersoch for a number of years; however, we required more space and a modern living space. Having used a previous Architect we required a new set of drawings and a 'clean sheet' approach. Having searched for an architectural designer we chose Gareth at BDS Gwynedd to capture our ideas and produce the plans. This decision was based on his enthusiasm, fresh ideas, and the promise to deliver an outstanding service.

Our choice proved to be the right one. Gareth captured all our ideas and added some of his own to produce planning drawings of exceptional quality that met all the Planning Officers requirements and of course our own.

We highly recommend Gareth to turn your building ideas into quality plans.

Andrew Winning Abersoch, Gwynedd

Following an Internet search we selected BDS Gwynedd to draw up plans for an extension and garage for our property. We were impressed by the straightforward information on the BDS Gwynedd website and the prompt response to our enquiry.

Gareth Jones arranged to meet us and spent considerable time assessing our property and requirements and advising us on how to achieve the desired alterations. He drew up plans and then checked that all our requirements had been included prior to submission on our behalf. He described the local authority planning procedures to us, organised any additional information that the authority required and guided us through the whole process. He also organised the accompanying building regulations documentation and submission. He has established good relationships with the relevant contacts at Gwynedd Council.

We have found Gareth to be very professional, thorough, supportive and attentive to our questions throughout the whole process. We have been very satisfied with the service provided by BDS Gwynedd, particularly when the authority raised questions about the submission. We would recommend BDS Gwynedd Ltd Architectural Services.

David and Cherry Waunfawr, Gwynedd

I recently had my bungalow extended joining my garage and making that a utility room with a cloakroom too.

Their pricing is on the website so there’s no nasty surprises.

They provided a design for the extension/garage to suit my needs, applied for planning permission and then building control.

All round I found their service to be professional and efficient.

I would therefore recommend them to anyone.

Steve Llandudno, Conwy

BDS Gwynedd’s work are effectively, personal and accurate. There are many questions that arise from the start of the project and is often great to have someone who can answer them and make the process simpler and easier.

Ywain Gwynedd Bethel, Gwynedd

Gareth has been fantastic throughout the whole process. Everything has been delivered on budget and by the deadlines set. His communication and approachability have been great, we have been updated step by step as to what is needed and what will happen next. His knowledge was reassuring and his advice has been excellent. I would recommend Gareth and absolutely use him again for any future projects.

Jack and Rhiannon Wrexham, Wrexham

Completed all aspects of our building control package in the agreed time frame. Always happy to chat on the phone, discussing ideas, problems and solutions. Highly recommend!

Richard Kiy Bronaber, Gwynedd

Thank you for all you help and expertise with the three projects you have completed for me. As you know I first contacted you with a requirement for planning permission to convert a building into flats. What you didn’t know at the time was my requirement for design and planning at another site and a set of plans at a third site.

Shortly into the first project I was impressed with your work ethic and had no hesitation asking you to work on the other two projects. Not only drawing up plans but organising a Structural Engineer Survey and Bat Survey saved me time and money.
The plans were completed on the third site, we have planning approved on the flats and we are awaiting planning approval on the last project. During your liaison with the planning department in the preplanning stage they confirmed they will recommend approval so thank you.

So thank you very much for your hard work and I do wish you every success in the future
