"Ben architected the extension on the back of our house and did a first class job. He interviewed us so that he could accommodate our lifestyle and needs into the design and upon completion, gave a very professional presentation of the various features of the design. He communicated his design to the builder and has remained open to communication with us and the builder throughout the build.
Ben's approach is to ensure planning permission is obtained first time through his knowledge of local planning regulations and by warming up the planners with an early look at the plans. He was able to accommodate any suggestions from the planner quickly while minimising the impact on timescales and the design.

I would definitely use Ben again for a similar project."

Trevor Hentzschel Technical Architect at Logica

"Ben Jurin acted for us recently in the re- design and extension of our pre-existing balcony. Ben understood the brief, listened to our ideas and respectfully suggested improvements and variations that would save us money whilst delivering what we had asked for. His dealings with the planning authority were professional in every way and it was evident he had much experience in liaising with local authorities. Ben sought quotes from local contractors which were brought within our budget. I would recommend Ben Jurin Architecture to others with confidence."
Anne McDowall Service Manager

"Ben is currently partnered with Blackpool Building Control. The drawings he submits make our job so much easier due to the quality of the submission, this speeds up the regulatory process which in turn assists his clients."

"Ben always submits quality plans that seek to balance his clients wishes with the Council's planning policies. He is always efficient in responding to any queries I may have, and at all times Ben is pleasant and easy to work with."

Susan Parker Senior Planner, Wyre Borough Council

"I worked with Ben on several projects whilst working at Blackpool Council. Ben was always conscientious and dedicated in the projects he dealt with, ensuring all Building Regulations matters were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Ben has produced some innovative and creative designs and was determined to provide high levels of service to his clients."

David Clarke Chartered Building Control Surveyor

"In 2011 Ben provided architectural services to enable us to remodel our family home. I liaised with 4 architects in total and made the decision to employ Ben for a number of reasons. He was approachable, straightforward and well organised. He also provided me with a detailed document which provided a breakdown of his services and costings.
Ben completed the work within the agreed timescale and provided us with some innovative ideas about how to best use the space available, without breaking the budget!
Furthermore he provided a detailed job specification, which was very helpful when sending out for building tenders. It has also ensured that our project has remained within budget. He has also showed a genuine interest in the property and how the building work progressed, which I don't think you would get from a larger firm.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ben. Thanks!"
Sharon Cooper Quality Assurance Manager


"I have known Mr Jurin in a professional capacity for the last 6 years.
I have always found Ben to be extremely efficient, possess great attention to detail, be innovative and creative, and always able to understand what we have communicated to him at our initial planning process and do his utmost to work with us in making it all happen.  Ben has drawn plans for our building business, also for our own home extension and recently planned and liaised with the another local contractor to carry out disabled adaptation works at my sons house, all to a great standard.

I would enthusiastically without any hesitation recommend the services that Ben provides."
