“Ben and the team at London i-Design and Consulting are very professional and outstanding!
The Design & Leveraging Interactive Software- When we decided to transform our backyard into a new outdoor living space, Ben listened and providing opinions based on what we wanted. It started with a sketch, then using interactive software, Ben literally built the new outdoor living space, decks, and walk ways into our existing house. The software gave us a real 3D view of the project as a part of our house, with a full walk through video, as well as still photos. We could see it “for real” versus just a black and white paper blueprint. Within the software, we could change the stone type from river rock to flat stones, the color of counter tops, decking, and patio floor options. The result was no surprises, and we saw the software version come to life in the real project completion.

Project Scoping & Proposal Detail- The final proposal was extremely thorough, with details on every phase, all labor hours, specific materials and quantities, permit fee estimates, and cost per project phase. We had zero unanticipated costs or surprises, a very important factor to me. The 2 changes orders we had where our decision, and exact specs and costs where added. We got exactly what was expected and paid for.
Construction & Project Management- The team is extremely professional and friendly, and after 4 months become friends with us and the kids. They where always here on time, and would clean up and organize at the end of each work day. A big whiteboard was in the back that had a running calendar of tasks for the week, scheduled hour by hour noting what work would be done on what day, as an example, concrete pouring Wed 2:00pm to 5:00pm. I found it very helpful and was impressed by the organization…it was cool to see what was happening when!
Completion & Follow up- When the project was completed, wow…what a transformation to a “5 star living space” that’s truly as if it was built into our house. We did a final walkthrough together, and created a punch list of little fixes here and there. Ben has stayed in touch 1 year later, coming back to fix a few loose wall stones and make sure we are happy with the project.
Simply put, London Design Build is first class and as good as it gets.
