Client Testimonials

"The children, team and parents at Yellow Dot would like to say a big thank you to TKLS for the innovative special places you have designed for us. From our award winning new build nursery, our revolutionary roof top gardens / playspace, our grade 2 listed refurbished derelict Farmhouse, our refurbished tatty pub and brilliant pavilion office suite, all totally meeting our needs and adding a tangible creativity to our nursery environments.

TKLS have not only listened they have understood, they have not only interpreted but enhanced, they have been willing to negotiate and renegotiate, they have believed in our ideas and gone the extra mile or two to deliver a viable solution. They have worked with us to help us achieve outstanding environments for our children, team and parents. They have been the expertise we lacked, acted like part of our Team and become part of our family. Thank you TKLS."

Jane Dyke, founder of Yellow Dot Nursery

"Over the last 20 years, TKL and subsequently TKLS Architects, have been key members of the design and construction team for six major projects on University of Southampton Science Park. They have constantly distinguished themselves by their high-quality designs, which have subtly blended innovation with pragmatism, and their commitment to customer satisfaction. I would have no hesitation in recommending them."

Peter Birkett, Chief Executive, University of Southampton Science Park

"TKLS did an excellent job in presenting fundamental design options for my rather restricted site and then turning my choice into a beautiful contemporary home, in spite of a requirement to harmonise with a conservation setting. The finished product is everything I hoped for and I am reminded every day of the imagination and skill that Nick Sherwood brought to the project."

"We have worked with TKL and TKLS for a number of years both on a wide range of major capital projects and smaller building works alike.

Their flexibility, responsiveness and attention to detail is unfailingly impressive. In the frenetic and changing world of Capital & Estates development in the Post 16 education sector it is refreshing to be able to rely on such a team."

Paul Warren, former Bursar, Peter Symonds College

"TKLS have designed Fareham Innovation Centre Phase 2 for us. It was very important to us that the building enhanced and was integrated seamlessly with Phase 1 and this has been achieved extremely well. We have been particularly impressed with the way in which TKLS focus on their client's needs and with their attention to detail."

Colin Mitchell, Daedalus Project Manager, Fareham Borough Council

"We have worked with TKLS on numerous occasions as both the contractor and client, and have found them easy to work with, approachable and professional.

When working as the contractor, TKLS were responsive to onsite queries and attended site many times to oversee the project and helped overcome problems when they cropped up. They held weekly meetings and coordinate projects professionally. When working with TKLS as the client we found them to be helpful, responsive to any queries, and their knowledge of the planning system was second to none. This knowledge has helped AD southern Ltd achieve planning approvals through attention to detail whilst ensuring the project is in keeping with local surroundings and more importantly, meeting their client’s requirements. We have found TKLS to be practical in their approach and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough."

Adam Eldridge, Director, AD Southern Ltd

"We were delighted to be awarded the New Build Nursery School in Romsey. Working with TKLS Architects was a pleasure – The quality of information and drawings provided were key in making this a successful build. This was complemented by regular site visits and a positive approach to problem solving on site. We trust we can work with the TKLS team again soon!"

Shaun Tuffin Contracts Director, LST Projects

"TKL and TKLS Architects have worked with Peter Symonds College continuously for more than 20 years and continue to provide us with an excellent service be it for large or small projects.

Their reliability, creativity and professionalism are second to none and we have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them."

Stephen Carville, Principal Peter Symonds College

"We have worked with TKL and subsequently TKLS for many years on a variety of projects and always found them to be professional, responsive and their positive approach transmits through the construction team. We hope to work with them again, and would therefore recommend them to others."

Nicolas Chevaux, Investment Manager Prysmian Group

"We appointed TKLS as the architects and project managers for the renovation of our family home. They guided us quickly and simply from designing our home, to gaining planning permission and then the actual build. At all times TKLS were available and ready to assist, regularly meeting with us and all other parties involved in the project. TKLS stayed fully engaged until all 'snags' were resolved and ultimately we have ended up with a family home of the highest quality."

Luke and Sarah, Shawford

"TKLS have just successfully completed our planning application for a four-bedroom house on a plot on our existing property. We must say they provided an excellent service in every respect and would have no hesitation in recommending their services in future. Nick and David were always available with sound advice and helped enormously with expediting our application and bringing it to a successful conclusion."
