"Just like to say Thank you to Matthew for an excellent job doing the plans for our attic conversion. He made it a very bearable experience and kept us updated throughout the process and all for a very reasonable cost. I would have no problem recommending Matthew to anyone looking for an architect."

"Matthew Cowan was recommended to us following us having met with two architects who were unable to transfer our vision into plans. Matthew was immediately attuned to our thinking and what we wanted to achieve so carefully with revision and his guidance, advice and thoughtful suggestions he produced plans which in time became our kitchen / family sunroom extension."

"Matthew is professional in all aspects of his role, he worked to agreed timescales, liaised with surveyors, builders etc completed all documentation to exacting standards; submitted forms while he kept us informed by copying us in each step of the way."

"We are delighted with our build and the part Matthew played in making it happen. It has been a pleasure working with him and we would certainly recommend MCADS to anyone looking for design advice regarding a build and for drawing the plans and seeing the project through to completion."

"This dream Architect is a kind, caring, extremely organised professional genius! Brilliant with technology. Matthew Cowan drew up plans for our new build. As a one off venture, we bought a plot of land which was only 12 metres wide but 40 metres long. Matthew held our hand from start to finish. Listening intently to what we "wanted", but professionally challenging our ideas which were not practical."

"He put the project out to tender, dealt with Planning, produced building warrant, oversaw the building, coordinated the Engineers. Nothing is too much trouble for Matthew and he was a delight to deal with. He had an excellent working relationship with the builder too. We couldn't have done this project without Matthew."

"We can provide photos if wanted and are happy to talk with anyone who wants more information on Matthew Cowan, King Street, Perth or our dream builder William Mailer & Sons from Aucterarder, Perthshire"

"We are delighted with the extension.It is everything we had wished for. We have been delighted with the attention, care, and performance of every single person involved in the whole project. It was a pleasure to see it all come together. We would also thank you, Matthew, for steering this project through the Council's labyrinth and your obvious attention to detail which we believe has been key to the success of this build."

"Mathew produced an excellent and expedient service from first contact onward. Our original idea for an extension to the rear of our property was improved considerably thanks to Matthews advice and suggestions. He provided much needed guidance and help when dealing with the bureaucracy of the planning department. An outstanding and first rate service delivered with great understanding."

"The Colin Hutton Group (CHG) required architectural advice and drawings for a recent project at our Coatbridge site. Matthew was highly recommended and dealt with our requirements both efficiently and effectively. Any required documents were sent electronically which suited our needs. His professional attitude was second to none and it is our intention to use his services for our future projects at Bellshill / Bothwell area."

"In 2008 we decided that we would extend our property instead of moving house and I began looking for an architect to have plans drawn up for submission. We already had an idea of what we wanted as far as an extension and I was introduced to Matthew. Matthew visited our home and carried out a measured survey taking precise measurements of the existing building and surrounding garden area from which he prepared drawings for us. Right from the outset we informed Matthew there was no rush and that he could take as much time as he needed, however the drawings were prepared and forwarded to us within a few weeks. Matthew kept in constant touch with us during the drawing process informing us of his progress and visited us at home several times at hours which suited us. Once the drawings were approved by ourselves Matthew carried out all the correspondence with the planning department on our behalf, which was a great help, and the drawings were passed with very little amendment.

Matthew also undertook the task of applying for and obtaining the Building Warrant for us, which again was granted without any problems. We then took Matthews drawings to a timber frame specialist who made our kit to Matthews specifications and in August 2009 we broke ground. The timber frame kit went up effortlessly due to the precise measurements taken by Matthew at the outset of the project and everything fell into place without incident, with existing openings matching exactly with the openings on the timber frame kit. Our overall experience with Matthew was a pleasant one, he always attended at our home when he said he would, and at all times he conducted himself in a courteous and professional manner.

We would not hesitate in recommending Matthew to any of our friends and family if they ever require the services of a good architect. Many thanks Matthew for all your hard work and effort in helping us make our house a family home."
