What do our customers say about us?


We know our comprehensive service is reliable and cost-effective. But the best testimonials come from those we’ve worked with. Here are just a few quotes from our customers: whether architects, property developers or private property owners, they recommend our services without hesitation!

“I have worked with Darren Evans Assessments on many occasions, and would like to say the service provided every time is fantastic. Not only do they do an incredible job of interpreting my business needs, they allow me to prepare my quotes without fuss and issue the work to the highest standards. I wouldn’t work with anyone else!”

Julia Martin-Woodbridge, sustainability consultant.

“After having my planning application refused for not conforming to the Government’s green strategy, I had to resubmit my application with a design that incorporated on-site renewable and low carbon energy development. After discussions with solar panel suppliers I found they were unable to offer me what I need to comply with planning: they could not calculate the effectiveness of the energy saving measures that I would be using, as they just used averages and base figures.

Darren Evans Assessments helped perfect my design by increasing my thermal efficiency in a few key areas so I was able to reduce my solar panels from 12 down to 4, which saved a lot of money: about ten times what I paid for the consultancy work.

I found their service fast, efficient and very easy to deal with. I will be using Darren Evans on my next project.”

Edward Baker, architect.

“Darren Evans Assessment’s in-depth knowledge helped us make the right choices leading to cost savings for our clients. I found DEA to be very pro-active and helpful. Their team provided a prompt and professional service for my client in support of a challenging planning application for change of use from office to residential. Darren Evans ensured that SAP calculations and a strategy for onsite sustainable energy production were in place to meet strict local authority requirements. I am grateful for their help and highly recommend their team.”

Julian Lowther, architect.

“I rang on a Friday to make an appointment for a representative from Darren Evans Assessments to do an Energy Performance Certificate on our property and was given an appointment on the following Monday.  I was able to pay for it by credit card over the telephone and Darren Evans Assessments emailed our Estate Agent immediately to confirm payment, so they could begin to market the property straight away.  The representative who did the assessment was polite, cheerful and friendly and the Certificate was emailed not only to me but also my Estate Agent within two hours – fantastic considering the property was in Gloucester and their office is in Chipping Sodbury!  I would highly recommend their services.”

Emma Herycz, home owner.

“I have consistently used the services of Darren Evans Assessments over the past five years, due to competitive pricing, proactive approach and prompt service. I occasionally check their prices against services offered by other SAP assessors, but have had poor experience from other companies in the field who do not have the same approach or professionalism.”

Paul Davies, architect.

“The ever increasing demands put upon agents and design technicians to comply with rigorous planning policies and building regulations can be sometimes daunting. Maintaining the loop of communication between clients, planners, building control and an array of agencies is eye-watering! Meeting time-scales and budgets are an additional knee-jerking experience. Specialist companies have evolved to relieve the plight of would-be sufferers and thankfully Darren Evans Assessments is one of them.

I have been relieved from the burden of a huge segment of mandatory regulations by their professional, efficient and friendly service, in addition to which their prompt response to requests is no less than impressive. They have applied a helpful ear to my tones of ignorance, addressing issues by reply within minutes – not hours and not days!”

Derek Tomley, architect.

“I found the service of Darren Evans Assessments to be very efficient and professional and would not hesitate to recommend them.”

Pamela Roberts, home owner.

“Darren Evans Assessment’s in-depth knowledge helped us make the right choices leading to cost saving for our clients. I found them to be very pro-active and helpful.”

Alözie Nwankwö, architect.

“Darren Evans Assessments were very easy to liaise and work with. They were very quick and efficient when responding to queries and obtaining certificates. They were very knowledgeable and resourceful for any queries raised and advice given, and were very organised as a company. I would work with DEA again and would recommend them to others. They are friendly, easy to use, cost-efficient and come up with quick solutions. In particular, they made our lives simple by being very organised and providing a tracking update when required.”

Gita Tandon-Giles, design manager.

“‘Free’ or cheap SAP calculations are not always value-for-money. I think our recent collaboration has proven that your services will be very useful to us in the future to keep us on top of specifications and show us how best to meet the ever-changing requirements.”

Scott Edwards, sales and commercial manager.

We are pleased and proud to work with such a wide range of companies and customers. We’ll always strive to provide the very best service from beginning to end – hassle-free.
