What my clients say

I have worked with many wonderful clients, architects and contractors. Here are a few testimonials from them.

We looked at a property which Hilary had developed and were so impressed with the quality of the work and the design that we asked her to project manage the conversion of a former care home, now derelict, which we had bought as our family home. 
Hilary totally guided us through the entire process, from engaging architects and engineers, to working with us on design and layout, to advising us on the tender process and appointing a contractor.
 Very hands on, Hilary is an on-site presence and knows everything that is going on, decisions can be made easily with her advice and she certainly helps to advise on costs. 
Incredibly knowledgeable about the build she is also brilliant at design and helped us with kitchen and bathrooms, joinery, lighting, tiling and floor finishes, producing sample after sample for us to look at and taking us to countless showrooms to look at materials. 
Even when it came to the final stages, Hilary helped us with furnishings, many of which we had made, she has a huge number of great contacts and contractors who have worked with her for years, this is all invaluable and something we simply would not have had access to without her. 
We love our house and have recommended Hilary to several friends who were embarking on projects in their homes, it was a great experience working with Hilary and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

We were recommended to use Hilary by my business partner whose house she had worked on and what a great recommendation that was!
 The detail she put into our project and the ideas which she gave us were invaluable and we are incredibly thankful for her advice and we will definitely use her in future.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Hilary Scott for some time now. Hilary and I have embarked on varying scales of projects over a 20 year span and what stands out to me is the way in which she considers every detail with her exacting standards. From initial consultation through to the design and procurement stages, the process is carried out in a manner in which no stone is left unturned. Hilary has a wealth of experience and an exceptional eye for detail, coupled with a contacts book overflowing with an abundance of professional and reliable trades people not only here in the North of England, but now proving to be on a national scale. All aspects of her work are carried out with careful consideration and the upmost integrity, whether a simple project or a huge one in which she is involved in every aspect. Not only has it been beneficial for me to be able to work along side Hilary, it’s been an absolute pleasure.

Hilary was recommended to us by a neighbour and we would never have been able to complete our extension without her. She introduced us to the architect and builder and negotiated on our behalf, she helped with the design and layout and specification of materials. We wanted very large glass panels and she recommended IQ Glass who she had worked with before, the result surpassed our expectations.Ours was a complicated build and Hilary took away all the stress from us. She is an absolute perfectionist! Would love to work with her again and would not hesitate in recommending her.

We have worked with Hilary on various large scale residential projects and she has always acted as the perfect relation between client and project. Hilary’s wealth of experience puts her in an ideal position to take the client by the hand in all phases of the project, help with all of these indecisions and shields the client from any issues that may arise. The site is always ran more efficiently therefore communication between the trades runs smoothly and the finished result is extremely high quality. I would recommend her to all my clients whose build required a project manager to help bring their home to it’s full potential.

We worked very closely with Hilary on a development in Totteridge. This was a very challenging refurbishment of a grade II listed building and its adjacent grounds. The existing properties were completely stripped so the building was back to its shell. The architect had designed all the layouts and structural works but had a limited role once the project was on site. Hilary took the lead on the management side and ended up driving forward all aspects of the project to ensure the project was delivered on time and on budget.

 Hilary spent a lot of time on site and was always at hand when it mattered. Her proactive and direct approach meant it was always easier to find a solution when any issues arose. There were no interiors selected at the outset and the client instructed Hilary to design and select all the interiors. Hilary has great eye for detail and has done a fantastic job on the finishing, especially with some really challenging spaces.

 She takes a methodical and dedicated approach to work which means you always get her full attention. Our relationship with Hilary was professional yet friendly at all times. She is a real pleasure to work with and if any future projects came along we would not hesitate to work with her again.

Director Sullivan Brothers
Hilary performed the role of Project Manager for the complete restoration of our house in 2012. This involved assistance with the selection of the architect and principal contractors, help in working with the architect to create the final layout, the day to day project management of the builders and other trades, the design of the kitchen and joinery throughout the house, and advice around colour schemes and furnishing. This happened over the period of about 18 months and at all times Hilary was dedicated to the project and exhibited tremendous enthusiasm, energy, attention to detail, and good taste. We valued very much her advice and experience and the result was a wonderful family house. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hilary.

Hilary has worked for me for 15 years and has project managed all of my building projects in that time, from smaller interior design schemes to the complete renovation of my London family home. Totally ‘hands on’ and practical but with a great eye for design and detail, I trust Hilary to always deliver to the highest standard. Hilary Project Managed a huge renovation project for me whilst I was living overseas and I had total confidence in her ability and integrity, she always has my interests at heart. Hard working, enthusiastic and totally committed to her work, with a wealth of experience and contacts, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Hilary.
