We had Andrew of DBD Architectural Consultancy recommended to us by a friend who had work done to their property. We wanted to have our kitchen & dining room made into one with a downstairs toilet added. Andrew helped us to set the ball rolling drawing up the plans & assisted us with finding a good trustworthy builder. We can highly recommend Andrew, who gives an excellent service. Many Thanks”
I contacted Andrew to help me manage a domestic refurbishment programme at home, as there was a lot of work to do and I wasn’t sure where to start.
He surveyed the house, drew up plans, contacted potential contractors, and advised me what was reasonable and what was not. He paid attention to detail and kept me informed during the lengthy process from first contact to contractors actually starting work.
Although I was on site and took daily decisions about minor details, Andrew visited and kept an overall eye on things, and stepped in on my behalf when queries arose between myself and the contractor.
On completion of the job, Andrew also negotiated with the contractor regarding what should and shouldn’t be extra, thus relieving me of a potentially stressful time, and saving me some money.
I found Andrew a good man to have on your side, and certainly worth the money spent for his expertise and support.”

I have worked on building projects with Andrew Dukesell of DBD Consultants for a number of years. I have always found him to be professional, cooperative with other professionals, and dedicated to meeting the clients objectives.”
I employed Andrew Dukesell of DBD on a small housing scheme which had its own unique complexities. Andrew offered a prompt, good value, creative solution to my proposed design and offered a personal service to aid the resolution of any on site issues that arose. I wouldn’t hesitate to employ Andrew at anytime in the future for any design work.”
I worked with DBD Architectural Consultancy on numerous projects in my role of project manager/quantity surveyor at Sandycroft Construction. Their architect Andrew worked extremely well as part of the management team, ensuring that information and drawings were always available on time .He always worked closely with myself and the contracts manager to ensure that the project came in within budget, to a good quality and on time. Highly recommended.”
Our firm employed DBD Architectural Consultancy to project manage a major refurbishment of one of our offices which had listed status. Their architect, Andrew micro-managed the project superbly with excellent communication at all times.”
As Chairman of Wyrley Juniors FC, I have known Andrew of DBD Consutlants as the Architect leading the Club’s Long Lane project for nearly 4 years. This project is a £1.15m scheme, involving 4 football pitches, 6 changing rooms, kitchen and community clubhouse.
Andrew has helped the Club overcome numerous hurdles including: –
- 2 Planning Applications
- Wildlife survey
- Considerable budget constraints
Without his enthusiasm, determination and knowledge we know that the scheme would not have commenced after 13 years of effort by Club members. When we have come to bigger hurdles, Andrew has provided optimism and solutions.
He has driven forward the project, not only with professionalism, but by managing and strengthening the relationships with the Club and agencies involved. We have been delighted with his services and whilst we understand the rationale behind his decision to move on, we will be sorry that he will not be there to see the completion of our vision.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew to any prospective client and would be more than happy to provide additional references.”
DBD Architectural Consultancy architect, Andrew, recently undertook the initial planning application to completion of detailed building drawings on our behalf to be submitted to the Local Authority for approval.
We have had previous dealings with him in relation to a planning application, and always found him to be most helpful, courteous and methodical in his work, work which is of the highest standard and is always completed speedily and on time and we would not hesitate recommending him to others.
We have always been more than happy with his standard of work, and he is always happy to deal on our behalf with any regulations that need to be complied with in respect of the Local Authority.”
