“I thought that applying for planning permission would be daunting, but PlanB Architecture and Yasmeen made the whole process really easy. They were reliable, arriving at the exact time for their appointment (unlike some other specialists who’ve let me down in the past) and were really friendly. Yasmeen clearly has a detailed understanding of the planning process and how the council approaches issues in practice, which was reassuring and helpful. She wasn’t remotely bothered when I had a last minute change of mind on the design and explained everything clearly.  She’s also really responsive to emails. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Yasmeen and PlanB.”

 Martin Hammond,Croydon


“I appointed Plan B Architecture as design and planning application consults on a residential extension project in south London – the project involved complex issues with regards challenges in maximizing space whilst achieving a design that was cost feasible. Plan B provided me with an excellent and efficient service, working to tight time scales, and answering queries immediately. Yasmin was excellent, with accurate advice on design and planning application issues  – she possess a wealth of knowledge in respect of planning and residential property design issues, enabled me to save a considerable amount of time and avoid unnecessary costs.   

My application was successful, and I have no doubt in believing this was due to the fact that Plan B Architecture represented me as planning and design consultants. I would highly recommend them.

"After receiving a high quote from another architect, my builder suggested that I use Plan B Architecture instead. The plans for a bathroom/dormer extension were drawn up in less than a week and quickly modified when I changed my ideas. Yasmeen sorted out the building regulations and the planning application efficiently. She kept me informed of all developments. I would certainly recommend Plan B and use them again."


“I would like to say that I was very impressed with your prompt response and site visit. I felt very reassured by your initial assessment and knowledge after having received negative feedback from neighbours. The drawings appear to be to a high standard and although I am not an architect I found them easy to follow.Many thanks for your help”

“Plan B Architecture was extremely professional and very efficient. They advised my partner and I upon the preparation of the designs for our new roof and loft conversion. They explained the various stages of the planning application process and explained the various regulations we need to comply as we progressed.  They were very easy to work with and knows what they were doing.  They produced some excellent plans for our loft conversion, it was a pleasure to work with Plan B Architecture. Their service is totally recommended”.

Nioka Fearon,London Borough of Lewisham


"Contacted Plan B Architecture after our original architect declined to produce Building Regulations drawings for a proposed single storey side extension. From the very first contact, till the notice of the granting of the Building Regulations approval, we have found Yasmeen to be excellent in all respects, highly professional, friendly and a good communicator. We would recommend Plan B Architecture to anyone requiring high quality drawings for Planning Permission and/or Building Regulations approval."

David and Carole Cooper...South Croydon


"I am happy with the services provided by plan B architecture and I would recommend them. Yasmeen always responded promptly and clearly to any questions I had and was generally very helpful. The quality of their work was good and our applications (planning, building regulations, thames water) went through without any complications."

Klara Tiitso,Royal Borough of Greenwich


"Yasmeen and Imtiaz were excellent from start to finish and as well as providing planning and building regulation drawings, they helped successfully guide me through the planning process as a whole for the first time. Their advice was always timely and pragmatic and not only did they clearly explain various options available at a given stage, they would also give their views as to the most appropriate course of action in the circumstances, giving their reasons. They also provided very useful advice to enable me to proceed to the construction stage. I would highly recommend Plan B Architecture."

"My husband and I employed the services of Plan B Architecture to draw up plans for a study room extension to our existing property. Having never gone through this process before we were a little apprehensive about the size of the task. However our concerns were alleviated by the professionalism and helpful nature of Yasmeen from Plan B Architecture. When Yasmeen came round to conduct the initial survey she offered very helpful advice which helped us in being able to optimise the utilisation of space for the desired extension. These were enhancements that we had not originally considered and we were appreciative of. Yasmeen also talked us through the planning process making it clear what was involved and how the long the process was likely to take.

The initial plans for the extension were quickly drawn up (within a couple of weeks from the survey). We required a relatively minor amendment to the plan (the addition of another skylight window), which Yasmeen was able promptly carry out. Once agreed the task of submitting the plans to Greenwich Council was undertaken by Yasmeen. Whilst waiting for a decision to be reached by the council, Yasmeen approached the council on our behalf and was able keep us informed on when the decision dates were likely to occur.

I would thoroughly recommend the services of Yasmeen and Plan B Architecture. We were extremely impressed by Yasmeen's professionalism and helpful nature"

“We employed Yasmeen Shaikh back in 2008 to provide architectural advice, drawings and to help with submitting a planning application for the building of a side extension to our property.She came highly recommended and her rates were competitive.We found Yasmeen to be very helpful, friendly, reliable, highly professional and competent throughout the planning process.  We found her work to be of a high standard and particularly liked her personal approach and excellent advice.  She organised everything with our planning application and secured swift building approval from the council.We would happily recommend Yasmeen for all your architectural needs…"

“I gained planning permission and building regulations with ease through the high quality plans produced by Plan B Architecture. Unlike other companies Plan B Architecture communicated very well explaining everything in step wise manner from the start and kept me updated all the time. Yasmeen was a good listener and easy to work with. Her discussions directly with the planners helped to speed up the process to a good conclusion. Everything went perfectly and at a very competitive price. I would certainly recommend Plan B Architecture to anyone contemplating a home extension."

David Lambert Orpington

“Contacted Plan B Architecture for a side extension .must say the drawings were of high quality and good value for money as I was quoted twice the amount by other architects for the same work.I dealt with Yasmeen and she was very helpful and attentive to our needs.We got the planning permission in the end .I would be pleased to reccomend them to my friends.Very good value for money ".

E.Watson Thornton Heath 

“We used Plan B Architecture to get us through planning and building regulations for our planned single storey extension. We knew what we wanted but could not give the planning authorities the drawings and detail they needed for application. We were in a fix . We called in Plan B and they provided soft copies of the application drawings within two weeks enabling us to proceed with planning application. They also did all the building regulations work and completed the whole design process in two months - 1 month quicker than estimated. I would have no hesitation in using their services again and reccomending them to all- they are fast and efficient."
