“I would confirm that I have worked with Mark Pellant of Koru Architects on a number of high profile commissions with Mark acting as the project architect over many years. I have always found him a pleasure to work with a very professional and diligent approach to the design process. This includes being able to take on board the needs and requirements of clients within the architectural process. I would highly recommend him as a valued member of the development team”.
W N Alderton BTP MRTPI
Director, Prospective Planning Ltd (Planning Consultants)

“I have had the pleasure of working with Mark on several projects throughout his career and have always been impressed with his attention to detail, his appetite for practical sustainability and his pragmatic approach to delivering quality projects on time and to budget. Nowhere is this more apparent that in the design and construction of his own personal house which embraces all of these values and is a true barometer of what I have witnessed him deliver for others too – there is no difference in the standards that he applies to projects, whether his own or others’ – always exemplary. For this reason, Ihave no hesitation at all in recommending Mark to any organisation or potential client”.
