J.W. Egan jr. - Gloucestershire said, “I was introduced to Carenza Development by a friend they had worked for, I had an old fallen down barn that no one could get planning for so it had stood derelict with help for many years. I understood Carenza was a dab hand at helping solve complex planning issues so approached Lui to try to get a result and renovate my barn.

“They took 18 months to achieve something no one else could so I was rather impressed at their approach. Part of the deal with the planners was

because a small river ran along the side of the barn we would have to build a large retaining wall (flood barrier) to reduce the chances of flooding. This was very costly but had to be done and then we could re-build the barn back to its original state. Once this was done we could then convert it into a holiday home so you can understand this was a very costly and time consuming exercise to achieve our goal.

“As an American spending most of the year in Florida I had to leave everything to Carenza but was more than happy to do so, they are in my opinion totally trustworthy and certainly competent builders who I would strongly recommend to anyone. The original budget for the project was £150,000.00 but due to the extensive external works ended up at £260,000.00 but I was more than happy to spend this to get this beautiful cottage on the edge of my farm.”
