“Gradwell Design has done extensive work for Hatfield Christian Church over a period of five years. During this period they have shown excellent skills, along with a good work ethic.
Some of the work they have done for us includes the layout of our Management Boardroom, Training Centre, Counselling Centre, Accountant Offices, Reception Area with Offices and Toddlers Ministry. I would rate their performance with us highly and the final product has served us well.
Gradwell Design is trustworthy, friendly and very creative. They do a thorough research of the company’s needs and works well with the client and has always completed their projects on time. They has a unique ability to match their creative input with our needs without us feeling being dictated to.
I would highly recommend Gradwell Design to any client where their expertise and experience is relevant.”

“Gradwell Design assisted me with the design of my first hairdressing salon. They both drew the plans for the shop fit to the finest detail and helped project manage the tradesmen. Gradwell Design was always there when I needed them and never let me loose focus on what my dream of the perfect salon was.
The result is a salon that both my clients love coming to and my staff are happy and comfortable to work in. The salon was a finalist in the AFHA new salon design for 2011, which was in my opinion a direct result of Gradwell Design’s dedication to the project.
I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

“Gradwell Design provided a magnificent result, building from scratch the décor and furnishings of South Africa’s Largest Private Medical Oncology Centre in the Capital Pretoria. Their professionalism and attention to detail from the early stages of meticulous space planning, drawings and modelling, were equalled by their vision and insight into the bigger picture. They completed a splendid time-efficient contract on budget, to present a functional stylish calm environment. This, complete with garden sanctuary for treated patients, a medical reception, clinic, research unit, pharmacy, administrative unit, nursing bays and treatment area where patients are treated after consultation in private surroundings, calm environment and providing for calm and safe supervision by nursing staff. Their after care was meticulous, and extension projects to the unit some years later, rapidly embraced and completed timeously by them. They contracted handpicked teams of tradesmen and the quality of materials superb, lasting now for more than 14 years.
I recommend Gradwell Design for any interior project.”

Looking forward to working with Gradwell Design on future projects. ”

" We have just completed a fit out of our new office at Kellyville Ridge.
We started with an empty concrete shell. I knew that I would not have the time to attend to the ongoing project myself and went on a search to find help. To start with we needed someone to do a floor plan design, and then to prepare plans to submit to Council.
I interviewed and met with about 3 Project Managers including Elizabeth Gradwell of Gradwell Design. Elizabeth had been referred to us.
I immediately liked Elizabeth’s ideas and asked her to proceed with the design and plans and submission to Council. Elizabeth knew what to do and was easy to communicate with, and before long plans were in Council. After working with Elizabeth to this point, I was so impressed with her efficiency, I asked her to continue to oversee the whole project.
Over the next 7 months, an amazing transformation took place. Our new office came to life under the guidance of Elizabeth. Elizabeth’s knowledge, great organisation skills, patience and eye for detail brought it all together. But most of all it was her passion for the job. She made the project her own and become emotionally involved and loved seeing it come together as much as I did. Sure, I had a lot of decisions to make along the way, but with Elizabeth’s advice and expertise it was easy for me. She guided me right down to the last smallest detail.
Every build has its issues along the way, but there was not many. That I heard of anyway. I am sure there were some, but Elizabeth obviously just dealt with the problems and the couple I did know about were rectified quickly and without any hassle from me.
Elizabeth was always contactable and approachable. Her easy going, joyful personality made every day a pleasure. The tradespeople she managed described her as a perfectionist, and I totally agree.
I would have no hesitation in using Elizabeth again, and I would highly recommend her. "
