Our Work


"My firm has retained the services of David for legal mapping issues, such as boundary and rights of way concerns, now for many years. He consistently offers a comprehensive well informed and accurate service and is prompt in doing so. I would have no hesitation in recommending him."

Killian Conwell. Senior Partner

Babingtons Solicitors

"ADMS have been working with this Practise for over 20 years and in that time we have collaborated on numerous commercial and residential projects from inception to completion. David has always understood the initial Brief and implemented a design that meets those requirements in concept, originality and inventiveness whilst keeping an eye on the budget and adjusting design where cost engineering is required whilst maintaining the overall ambience of a project. Stand out commissions include the revival of a 17th Century Grade B listed dwelling at Ling House, Claudy where restoration of the existing building was complemented by an ultra-modern glass walled extension. Holly House was a 18th century Gentleman’s Residence left derelict and was brought back to life with a sympathetic restoration of the features from the period whilst making the internal appearance allow both modern and traditional finishes to complement each other. IBI house was a 21st Century modern design with sweeping glass vistas of the surrounding mountain views with an eye on environmental credentials from heating pumps to living roofs to water harvesting and an eco-house management system. Commercial projects have involved Restaurants, Church Halls and Storage Warehousing and we would engage David’s services in the various Loss Adjusting projects that require Architectural input. Always willing to engage in a project no matter the size, always diligent in his service and always knowledgeable about Planning, Building Control and Statutory Requirements. We have no compunction in recommending this practise as Ambassadors of ability.”"

"David was recommended to us by friends who had previously used his services to draw up plans for a new house build. We really enjoyed working with David on the plans for our kitchen extension. He initially came out to visit us and get a brief of what we wanted. We had planned the kitchen extension for a long time, and he understood what we wanted, and drew up plans we were really happy with, in a timely manner. We had issues with finding the right builder for the work, and David gave us a recommendation and the builder, and his team were great to work with. We wanted a few minor adjustments made to the plans before building commenced and David was happy to accommodate these. David liaised with the planning department and building control for us and made getting the building project off the ground a smooth process for us. The builder commented how useful the plans were as they were very detailed and gave him clear instructions to help with the build. We would highly recommend David as an architect for any building project. He has great ideas and is warm and friendly in his manner."

"I have been working with ADMS for almost ten years and have always found the service highly professional, friendly, and timely. David Graham is a highly knowledgeable and approachable professional who has provided advice and produced plans/maps of the highest quality for our clients regarding conveyancing matters, boundary disputes, applications for planning permission and consent to discharge effluent, as well as acting as an expert witness in licensing cases. I would have no hesitation in recommending David Graham of ADMS to act on your behalf."

"We were lucky to have ADMS Architects work on our home extension plans and planning permission application. From the get-go Davy listened and understood us and our lifestyle. Davy then took from those conversations, ideas, and inputs into how he believed the extension would suit our needs best. Davy was conscientious and focussed on making sure the detailed plans covered everything we had discussed. He worked and reworked the design proposal and ensured the final proposal was exactly what we wanted. Davy was always available throughout the planning submission process and provided advice on the build above and beyond what was expected; he used his vast experience and design skills to also help us understand what would and may not have worked so well for us, ensuring we got return for our investment which we could enjoy every day, all year round. Now we live in a beautiful home where he managed to retain the beautiful old original look that we first fell in love with while also giving us a modern home that we love to call home. We would recommend Davy to anyone looking for a dedicated architect."

From our initial consultation to onsite visit and execution of the final plan; David was flexible, insightful and gave an objective viewpoint at each stage. His level of professionalism and attention to detail went over and above our expectations and we were thrilled with the end result."

"Hasson and company Solicitors on. on behalf of their clients have consulted David. Graham on a variety of matters concerning Planning / Building control / Site maps / Land registry boundary issues We have found the services rendered were to the highest professional standards.

Mr. John Hasson. Partner

Hasson & Co. Solicitors

"A big thanks to you and your office for all your help with our plans. Considering we were going to give up on building when planning first told us of the restrictive conditions. Thanks to you we decided we should go ahead, the fantastic outcome and design proved it was worth the gamble."

J. Haire.

Client for a bespoke design rural dwelling.

"I always instruct David Graham of ADMS in any conveyancing matters whereby mapping is required or wherein an application is required to be submitted to the NIEA for a consent to discharge of effluent. David has attended to any mapping queries/requests promptly and always provides a first-class service. The maps produced are clear, concise, and suitable for registration at the land registry. Our instructions have ranged from mapping a small sliver of land, attending to mapping anomalies, to mapping premises wherein the title is unregistered, and the mapping is extremely complex. David is approachable, efficient, and extremely helpful and I would highly recommend that those with the same requirements contact David should they require such services."

M. Rosborough

Private, bespoke dwelling design client

"I have worked closely with ADMS Architects, and particularly David Graham, on various projects over the last number of years. His thoroughness, attention to detail and mapping ability is second to none. During this time, I have recommended him to a number of my own clients doing self builds and I know he has gone on to forge lasting relationships with them and family members following this. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in the future."

Mr. Andrew Lyttle. Senior Partner

"I think the design is fantastic and cannot wait to have it presented to the clinic staff. Although not an easy process through planning, I knew ADMS would eventually be capable of negotiating a solution & design to satisfy everyone."

Dr. M. Reid

Client for private dental clinic

"ADMS has provided us with a building designed to last the current, modern day church needs. More importantly than this it will also serve many generations to come. Seeing the scheme through planning was no easy task, but ADMS negotiated it superbly and effectively."

R. Barbour

Limavady Baptist Church (from an address given at the re-opening of the Church)

"We appointed ADMS having had multiple referrals to the practice from previous clients. Like them, we were not disappointed. Having not undertaken any design / building work before, David smoothed everything out, and provided a flawless service. From listening to our requirements, producing a design which met (and exceeded) these, dealing with the various statutory applications and helping to see through the work on site - He was meticulous in is approach and organisation of our house extension, whilst always being approachable and unflappable when minor issues had to be overcome. We cannot thank David / ADMS Architects enough for playing a huge part in providing us with a dwelling which has transformed our daily lives for the better. We can highly recommend their professionalism and experience. "
