“CODE Student Accommodation has instructed Staniforth Architects Ltd to assist on a number of our recent schemes. Their ideas and creativity, linked to local and national knowledge are a real asset to any scheme and you can be assured that Lee and his team will always go the extra mile.”

Jamie Lewis – CODE Student Accommodation

“Staniforth Architects provide a comprehensive, commercially astute and focused service. Their experience in designing award winning schemes, along with their ability to efficiently handle planning and technical issues means that we are assured an efficient delivery on all of our projects. We would have no hesitation in recommending them on residential and commercial projects alike.”

Tom Hazelton – Hazelton Group.

“We hired Lee in 2007 to design our new golf and conference centre located at J25 on the A14. The project took 15 months to complete and opened for business in March 2008. The result is a stunning golf and conference centre that Callaway Golf described as “Europe’s Most Complete Golf Complex” The conference facilities are arguably the best in Cambridgeshire with our conferencing and event business in 2010 on target to exceed £500,000 in only our third year. I have no hesitation in recommending Lee on any building project. I have re-employed his services to look at further planning opportunities to further develop our complex”

Peter Durham – Head of Membership Services & ProShopRevolution at Foremostgolf Ltd

Gary Barber – Owner, Benchmark Property Limited

“Our practice has worked with Lee and his team on a range of complex projects and would consider that the standard of their delivery and the manner in which they communicate their service is of the highest order. We would highly recommend their services to any national or regional developer looking to acquire land or a property of note.”

Chris Farrow – FarrowWalsh Limited

“It is always a pleasure working with Lee, Ian and the team. They place huge emphasis on getting the design right during the pre-planning design stage considering all aspects such as sustainability and aesthetics. Having supported Staniforth Architects on a number of schemes since 2009, I can endorse their holistic approach and use of modern tools, software and design methods to deliver fantastic schemes and continue to secure further work based on this reputation.”
