What Our Clients Say

"I interviewed several firms but we chose Fredrick Adam because we were impressed with the “can do” attitude of the company, and because we felt it was important to have the design and planning teams within the same organisation."
"Fredrick Adam Ltd were tenacious and professional throughout.  A true partnership with an excellent can-do attitude. They never give up."
"I would absolutely recommend Fredrick Adam to anybody, from an extension to a 400 unit site."
"From the outset they were reliable, professional and very easy to work with. They helped us with all aspects of the planning application and continued to advise and help us throughout the build. I would certainly recommend them for future projects." 
"From start to finish it has been a pleasure working with Fredrick Adam Ltd in the planning stages of building our new home."
"We found Kerry to be a very calm head during our planning application process. Highly approachable and professional, she always responds quickly to emails or phone calls. She found solutions to some seemingly unsolvable problems with the new SDNP rules and got us our planning permission within our timescale despite several delays from the other side."
"Initially, I'd only planned to use FA for their planning services, but after speaking to both Kerry and Tom decided to go with them for the whole project. Not only was it easier in the long run, but I was also really impressed with their end to end capabilities and commitment to getting me the result I wanted."
