I initially met with John Mc Donnell to discuss a possible renovation and re-design of a non-trading licensed property that resided in a distressed state of repair. He quickly established my requirements for this project and offered me clear and sound advice that prepared me with a road map from which the venture could proceed. John costed the job accurately to stay within my budget and furnished me with an impressive set of drawings that instilled a lot of confidence in me. He efficiently sourced all the materials needed an recommended tradesmen in whom I could expect a high quality finish. His project management skills were evident in the fact that the job was completed on time, within budget and his attention to detail is second to none. I would have no hesitation recommending Mc Donnell Design.
We have a business relationship with Mc Donnell Design since 1994 when we first employed them to design Fitzroy’s a small café with 26 seats. John’s contemporary design and management of that job was integral to our success which enabled us in 1998 to expand Fitzroy’s to 87 seats within a very difficult site. We returned again in 2004 to formulate a concept to metamorphosed our business into Fitzroy’s Bistro. Their design and management of the project was first class. When we decided to expand our business with another site in 2003, John was integral in helping us identify a suitable site. Again Mc Donnell Design’s concept exceeded our expectations and they successfully lead a design team in the conversion of a boathouse ( a listed building) and adjoining car repair garage into Quaywest a 130 seater licensed restaurant. John provides a very accessible and personal design service with a strong attention to detail and I would have no hesitation in recommending Mc Donnell Design.
