Our association with Webber Associates spans a period of many years. We have worked alongside Jeff Webber over that time and have always appreciated his careful and insightful support.

Our current project involves the sympathetic restoration and extension of a house with local historic listing Jeff’s span of experience and knowledge have moved this undertaking smoothly forward keeping the stakeholders engaged throughout the planning process. Jeff’s quiet and thoughtful demeanour has been a reassuring dimension in this process.

We place great value on our relationship with Webber Associates that has been pivotal in the progress that has been achieved.

We were very pleased to have Jeff design and project manage our building works.

Jeff is very skilled and experienced and came up with designs for our extension which exceeded our expectations and were far from what we had originally envisaged. We had hoped for a larger kitchen, but we ended up with a fantastic living area which looks good and is larger than we would have thought, and which has completely transformed our house and our day to day living.

We asked him to project manage the build too, through the necessary planning approvals and contractor selection and then through the actual build process. His calm and considered approach and extensive experience made the whole project run very smoothly, and kept us calm at what could have been a very fraught time in our lives! He took a lot of the stress away from us working with the various contractors and advising us throughout the process, and the project completed pretty much on time/budget/quality.

His knowledge and experience also helped save us money on the whole build project and without his advice we probably could not have achieved what we did within our budget.

We would highly recommend him to anyone.

We worked with Webber Associates from concept through to execution of our city centre retail store. The store was quite complex and our ideas unusual, but Jeff was able to bring them to life and turn thoughts in our heads into a real design that both looked great and worked.

Nothing was too much for them – the level of service they offer is exceptional – it is great to find a firm who don’t only support you through doing great work, but are also there to answer those silly questions or to put you at ease when you are worrying about things.

When you employ a professional firm you want them to take the stress out of the process and that is exactly what Webber associates did. Of all of the people we have worked with over the years, this company truly stands out. I would not go to anyone else, and would recommend them unreservedly if you want the most professional of services delivered by people that it is a true pleasure to work with.

Along with Webber Associates we were commissioned by Bristol City Council as a part of the design team for two new control rooms – one as a traffic control centre and the other for security camera installation and monitoring.

In each case the projects were both complex and challenging in their nature with fibre optic cabling terminating in banks of display screens. Jeff approached the challenges in a calm and professional manner and brought them to a pleasing conclusion on time and on budget. We are happy to recommend the practice and would be pleased to work with them again.

We appointed Jeff Webber to act as our architect and planning adviser after we had purchased new premises for Nailsea Baptist Church in August 2010.

Jeff Webber very professionally advised us of what we could achieve and supported this with drawings to support his recommendations. He guided us through the planning application and worked in helping us obtain competitive tenders from local builders in line with our funds available.

He managed the project with us and we were delighted to deliver the completed project on time and within budget.

His fees were most competitive and were within the guidelines given to us.

We would highly recommend him not only for the professional way he works, but as a nice person to work with.

Jeff Webber worked with us on major works at 89/87 Park St Clifton Bristol. He was an oasis of calm and gave excellent advise in what proved to be a challenging project. During the work Jeff had the ability to work with all personnel on site whilst giving firm advise on how many items should be organised.
With the next project I will definitely contact Jeff and I will look forward to us working together again.

I have no reservations in recommending Jeff Webber, of Webber Associates, to anyone who has a building project – whether small or large. We have used Jeff’s services a number of times over the years for substantial, and complex, building work on our Victorian semi. Once for a large loft conversion and, more recently, for a two story extension to the rear of our property. This included underpinning the party wall, excavating a basement and removal of substantial parts of our external walls (with associated reinforcement).

After being frustrated with the designs from a couple of architects we commissioned, we approached Jeff to see if he could translate our thoughts into something we could be happy with. The great thing about Jeff is that he thinks about the solutions you want, and then translates them in an innovative way into a design that works both practically and architecturally.

We would never have thought about interlocking curves for the roof line, but it is a now great feature, inside and out. Jeff is also an excellent all-rounder – he assisted us with planning permission, building control, commissioning a structural engineer, drawing up the contract, tendering, selection of contractor, project management and troubleshooting throughout the works.

As well as saving us money on the building contract and ensuring the quality of the work, he helped us with such things as heating problems, and advised us on suppliers of flooring, etc. Nothing is too much trouble for Jeff. It was great to have such a wide pool of experience there when we needed him.

We have worked with Webber Associates on two separate projects, the first of which was for the design of a new block of sixteen flats and the second of eight flats. In the first instance the design was innovative and made best use of the land and views whilst recognising the constraints of the existing built environment.

Webber Associates helped us greatly with some difficulties we were experiencing relating to the block of eight flats which had been designed by a different architectural practice. Jeff quickly identified the problems and worked hard to find solutions and also gave invaluable advice during a period of litigation to mitigate our losses.

We have no hesitation in recommending Webber Associates.

We have worked with Webber Associates from when we first moved into this listed Victorian building some six years ago. They helped to design the building of new residential accommodation and the creation of a new cafe area, open for public use. We are now involved in an ambitious project converting a former billiard room into a meditation facility for the benefit of the local community.

Webber Associates have been with us from the beginning – helping with the design, submitting plans, working with our partners and with the contractors. They quickly understood our needs and have always helpfully responded to the challenges that have arisen when working with an old building. We are extremely grateful for their reliable, constructive and professional support.

We wanted a 6-figure house improvement, including new kitchen, sun room, patio area and loft conversion, including an en-suite bathroom. Jeff was great, listening to us and turning our vision into reality – just what we wanted.

His project management skills turned out to be money well spent, helping us to choose the right builder and keeping him on track. Also, handling all the red tape and co-ordinating the various parties who needed to be involved. This is important as even the best builders want to do it their way, which isn’t necessarily what you want.

So, we got a first class result and peace of mind, knowing that the project was delivered correctly.

I have known Jeff for many years and as an owner of a number of properties have worked with him on a variety of projects, including overseeing major repair works, converting a whole house into flats and making a good living space from a previously uninhabitable basement area.

I have always found him to be helpful, open-minded nd resourceful, willing to explore all possibilities and accommodate the ideas with which I am presenting him.

He comes highly recommended!

“Jeff Webber Associates” were commissioned by us to produce a set of drawings for two buildings we were proposing to purchase to become Buddhist Centres, to perform education, worship and residential functions.

Jeff’s work was accurate, inventive and sensitive to our requirements.

Jeff was both patient yet firm (when we would wander off track with our ideas!).
His application was diligent and thorough.

I would recommend Jeff’s company without hesitation.
