  • Running a local firm, providing Architectural Services in a rural area, I have always had difficulty in recommending a small builder who is conscientious, competent and keen to complete the project on time and within the original estimate. Matt met all of these criteria when I instructed him to build an extension at home.  He had a realistic and reasonable approach to pricing additional works that occurred during the project, which is important, when 99% of construction involves changes or last minute additions.                                  REG BURNINGHAM, MCIAT, R B DESIGN, ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES

     Matt Forrester and his team completely transformed my house and garden over the 18 months they were working here and I have been very pleased with the standard of work throughout.  Matt  impressed me greatly with his creative,  helpful and conscientious attitude to the project. His priority was always to give me the home I wanted and to sort out any concerns that arose without delay.                              CLIENT FROM WHITESTONE

    Here at MF Architecture, we offer Architectural work over a mixture of development styles. This ranges from domestic extensions and home alterations, through to barn conversions, commercial new build schemes and one-off or multiple housing schemes. Matt Forrester has worked on a number of projects for us,  and Matt has sailed through, resulting in happy clients for all of us. Often faced with working in difficult to access areas, Matt adopts a flexible and friendly approach, working tidily and efficiently to ensure minimum disruption to the client and neighbours alike. The quality of workmanship is always to a high standard, and is evident from his website photographs.                                                                                                                                                                                MATT FARMER , MF ARCHITECTURE
