Clients: Julie & Andrew Howat, Pittenween – alterations & single storey extension
"I asked a local and well respected builder who would be his top pick of architectural designers to work with and he said "Liam Anderson without a doubt." Within seconds he called Liam on his mobile phone and that is how our fortuitous journey began with Liam Anderson Architectural Services! My husband and I were eager to work with someone who would take into account my husband’s mobility issues, creating a spacious and power chair friendly extension.
Liam from our very first meeting was professional and attentive, taking on board our more specialised needs, and immediately instilling us with confidence. Most of our contact with Liam getting us through the process of Planning and Building Warrant applications, and our various queries along the way were conducted via email. Liam was always quick in his responses to us and made the whole process very easy and appear seamless! Our new extension is absolutely fabulous and gives us, especially my husband, a new way of living. Without hesitation we would highly recommend Liam Anderson!"
Clients: Jules & Jeremy Williams, Lundin Links – conversion of barn to two bedroom house
"Liam worked with us on re-developing a dilapidated old stone building into a beautiful two bedroom house over a period of two years. Liam was ever present when we needed his advice as we went through the numerous stages including pre-planning, planning and building control as well as providing us with contacts for engineers. Liam understood our needs and was always available to answer any questions in a timely manner. We were very happy with the service provided and already looking to use Liam again for our next project."
Clients: Miss L. Campbell & Mr S. Wintle, roof conversion & roof terrace, Earlsferry, Fife
"Once again many thanks for your help. We found the whole building process relatively easy and pain free. Your relationship with the builders and relevant council departments was undoubtedly a major part of that. Your idea for a roof balcony rather than a dormer was inspired and we have had amazing feedback from people who have been in and enjoyed the incredible views or have just seen it from a distance. As you know it’s a small community and word quickly gets back to you. We’re also particularly pleased with the design to accommodate the staircase. Most people think it must have been an original feature and can’t believe the stairs and top floor were only created a couple of years ago."
Client: Neil & Karen Johnston - Structural Alterations and Loft Conversion to Existing Single Storey Bungalow, Leven, Fife
"We got in touch with Liam as he was recommended by friends. He was very knowledgeable, talked us through the whole process, gave us a few options and carried out works quickly and efficiently. He helped us in making the most of the space available and we are delighted with the end result. We would highly recommend Liam for any building project. He also has great taste in football teams."
Client: Janis & Ian Morris – Conversion of garage and attic conversion, Cellardyke, Fife

We trusted Liam to formalise the design, seek planning consent, prepare the detailed drawings to gain building control and lease with our contractor during the extensive works. 6 months later we have a stunning property that we are absolutely delighted with. When showing the property, we are always asked the question “ who was your designer?” Enough said!"

I would have no hesitation in recommending Liam."
Client; Mr G. Morris & Dr S. Morris-Doyle, Pittenweem – Listed Building Consent application & Building Warrant for various works
"My wife and I recently purchased our house in Pittenweem. It dates back to the 1850’s and is listed. We wanted to make some changes to the interior that would require structural work and therefore various levels of planning consent and approvals.
We feel very lucky to have engaged the architectural services of Liam Anderson to advise and help us achieve our goals. Liam gave clear and concise advice every step of the way. He tempered our enthusiastic but somewhat amateur designer tendencies with practical, thoughtful and affordable solutions.
Liam guided us through the planning process successfully submitting applications on our behalf, managing queries and responding promptly to any questions. His professional support has enabled us to move quickly, to receive the permission to make the changes we envisaged and without question to do all this in a cost effective manner. Liam combines professionalism with being a thoroughly nice guy; what more can you ask? We would unreservedly recommend Liam Anderson Architectural Services."

building warrant application
"From day one Liam impressed me as someone who was a very competent and capable individual who had a very good understanding of his business. I had made a number of changes to the original layout of both the interior and exterior of my house, and I was concerned to ensure that all the work complied with building regulations. He arranged to meet with me on various dates, and was always on time and was very business-like in his approach.
Time scales for drawings and submissions to the relevant authorities were always completed adhered to, he communicated with me on a regular basis, and kept me informed of progress at all times. Within a relatively short period of time the necessary approval was received from Building Control, and I now have peace of mind regarding the future sale of my property. I would say that Liam's work and quality of product has been excellent value for money, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other potential customers."

Client: David Gray – church conversion & new build project
"Liam Anderson was highly recommended to me through a friend of my father who lives in St Andrews & had previously employed Liam’s services. The Project I employed Liam for is a 2 phase project, the first phase was to obtain planning permission & building warrant for the conversion of a Dundee Church into 7 residential flats.
Phase 2 is the demolition of the church hall to the rear and the building of 2 new houses in its place. For phase 1 we had to have lots of pre planning application & pre building warrant meetings with the Council to make sure as much character as possible was retained and that we converted the church sympathetically in regards to its original use whilst still finding ways to overcome certain aspects to comply with building standards.
Liam was in constant communication with Dundee City Council on my behalf & he kept me up to date with everything that was happening. Liam also recommended various other professions such as structural, acoustic, and land survey engineers that he was willing to liaise with directly. Liam offered me a very structured quotation at very competitive rates & he has delivered a very professional service to the time scale we agreed & with no additional costs.
I would highly recommend Liam to anyone I know & I look forward to working with him in the future on phase 2 of the project & hopefully more projects after this."
Client; Mr & Mrs A. Young, Denbeath, Fife - kitchen extension & garage
