One of the things I’ve learnt in my experience of dealing with architects and builders is that there are few relationships in life which are as likely to go wrong as that terrible trinity of architect – client –builder. The great thing about dealing with TylerMandic is that you get access to some very good architects and access to some masterpiece builders. No building project is without its problems, but my experience was that most problems went away and we were left with an excellent result.

In 2011, we were living outside of the UK when we bought a small house in Pimlico requiring refurbishment. We were keen to find a company that would agree to refurbish the house without us being present, so having contacted Gordana and Peter via email and received a very quick reply, we flew to London to meet them within a few days. The meeting was very pleasant and we immediately felt confident that Gordana was interested in our vision for the house. We were very happy to start work immediately, so we gave them the keys and within a short time they started to send us layouts.
We communicated a lot by email and it all worked very well; we were even sent samples by mail, so we were able to choose the finishes without having to travel. The construction went very smoothly with us visiting the site a couple of times and we were always very impressed with the professionalism and quality of the building work. Communication between us, Gordana and Peter was always very smooth and quick. As a result, we always felt very safe and comfortable even though we were not able to visit the site frequently.

We really liked the fact that the architects and builders are the same team, because too often things fall through the cracks. Sometimes the builder will blame the architect and sometimes the architect will blame the builder, but when they are part of the same team, no one can blame anyone else. They also took on all the project management, an absolute blessing once we realised just how involved and complex things could be.

Our house was completely gutted and taken back to the brickwork before the team pulled it all together again. It was a substantial job, done in the time scheduled and for a modest amount, especially when compared to the huge increase we saw in the value of our property.

We were extremely pleased with the whole project – it’s exactly what we wanted. And money-wise, they kept to our budget as well as completing the job more or less on time.

Our house has been completely transformed. Everyone who comes here thinks it’s terrific and can’t believe it’s the same house. The layout has improved, it’s much lighter, feels like there is more space and is a lot more comfortable to live in. I’m really pleased with the result and it works very well indeed.
