Initially we spent a lot of time working with Farahbod to get the plans exactly how we wanted and then work started in December 2015. We initially toyed with the idea of project managing it ourselves but, having seen Malcolm in action and taking into account all that he did, I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t have made it without him. He kept us in the loop constantly and, even though there were still a lot of decisions for us to make, it all went really smoothly. Most importantly for us, they came in on budget and on time, which was absolutely great.
Not only are [NVDC Dental] excellent professionals; they are good men. There is a calmness to the accommodation, which makes it a pleasure to work in. Everyday is a joy to go to work in this accommodation.
NVDC is a professional & approachable property company. The team at NVDC always return my calls swiftly, and responds to emails within a day. I believe that NVDC are methodical, meticulous, knowledgeable and also very pleasant to engage with during all manners of work from inception to completion.
At such a stressful time following the severe damage caused by a neighbouring fire, all the team at NVDC were fantastic to deal with. They worked very quickly but with great care and attention to get the building completely stripped out over the festive season, in time for the specialist cleaners to start their work. Then they rebuilt the practice within a very tight timescale and worked alongside all the other suppliers to get the practice open as soon as possible. The end result is amazing. The practice is now brighter, fresher and much more fun to work in. The new layout which Farahbod suggested has been a complete success. Patients love it, and the smaller patients have gave a big “thumbs up” to the new kids area!!! Not only is it getting great comments from patients, but we have also managed to have space for another dental room to be fitted, helping to grow the practice further. I would recommend NVDC’s team without hesitation.
The thought process that went into creating the finished product is reflected in the positive feedback we have had from all our patients.The overall design and fit-out achieved by NV Design & Construction exceeded my expectations.
[NVDC Dental] were responsive, creative and delivered on time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
NV handled everything – liaising with dental suppliers, sorting out the sterilisation room, and always finding the right person for every aspect of the development.
I have a stunning practice and the whole process of achieving this couldn’t have been more straightforward.
I would like to thank Farahbod and his team at NVDC for the excellent work they did in the creation of our new dental specialist practice, Kingdom Clinic in Killarney. They have helped us transform a derelict dark commercial space into a modern and bright dental clinic. Not only did they create an amazing space for us and our patients, but I was greatly impressed with their enthusiasm, communication and knowledge of dental surgery design. A good architect adds value to projects such as this. If you want a great architect for your dental project, I would wholeheartedly recommend Farahbod and NVDC.
Their one stop shop approach allowed us to feel part of the process from start to finish, as has their dedicated and personal project management
We were delighted with the outcome of our reception and were inspired with the manner in which the company allowed us to think outside the box.
We would thoroughly recommend their services. Their thoughtful approach really maximised the potential of the practice and the end result is really rather special. Through working in partnership with NV we now have a really well designed, modern looking practice that incorporates all our functional needs.
“I have been working with Mr Nakhaei and his firm for over four years now. Farahbod is both a gentleman and very competent and professional architect – his knowledge of the dental world is comprehensive and his knowledge of dental building projects is unmatched. He also has a support team who are a joy to deal with.
My project to expand my practice had hit virtually every problem imaginable from planning, contractor issues, money issues – you name it, it happened!
Without Farahbod’s guidance and interventions, especially when I was severely let down by another company, I would have had a genuine disaster on my hands.
In addition to guiding my through all the mire of the expansion we have ended up with a lovely result which has garnered patient compliment after compliment. While I would do many, many things differently I would not swap working with Farahbod under any circumstances.
I can also say on a personal level one couldn’t work with a more polite or friendly man – a delight and a pleasure. My wife and I are now working with the firm on a project at home and it’s being handled with customary aplomb despite multiple challenges – I’m not surprised and I wouldn’t trust my business or home needs to anyone else.
I would caution anyone about embarking on a building project – it makes dentistry seem fun and easy! I would say if you’re doing it then do it with the right team behind you: don’t look anywhere else, contact Farahbod and NVDC. They will look after you, whatever happens – can’t ask for more.”
I have known Farahbod Nakhaei since 2012 and have engaged his architecture firm to plan 2 medical and surgical clinics in Glasgow. I have also had plans for my own home designed by NVDC. I have been very impressed with their work, in particular with their knowledge and adherence to the plethora of Healthcare Technical Memoranda which pertain to the design of an HIS compliant clinic. On a personal note I find both him and is team very easy to work with and very accommodating. In particular they have worked closely to tight timescales and produced designs on budget. For the last build they conducted and managed our tendering process efficiently and delivered significant cost savings. The designs are aesthetically pleasing whilst also being functional and have stood the test of time.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Nakhaei and his team at NVDC.
We now have a really well designed, modern-looking practice that incorporates all our functional needs and fulfils NHS requirements.
NV’s thoughtful approach really maximised the potential of the practice and the end result is individual and rather exceptional
I have had the opportunity to work with Farahbod’s team on three separate occasions and I have to say that they have been consistently positive experiences. Farahbod not only has a fantastic attention to detail but has an artistic eye which allows him to come up with “out of the box ideas”. On the two professional projects that he has worked on with me we have been very happy with the end result. In fact we receive many positive comments from our clients regarding the design that he has played a big hand in. The other important element is that it can invariably be daunting and stressful working with builders. Again I have found Farahbod and his team (especially Malcolm) to be excellent at supporting and making sure that I got what I wanted.
I have recommended Farahbod to many other friends and colleagues because I genuinely believe that his team are amazing.
We are in the process of having some major underground renovation work and are delighted to have NVDC on board again.
Having worked with Farahbod and Malcolm before in seven of our dental practices from Oban to Bonnyrigg, and being nothing but thoroughly satisfied with standard of their work, we didn’t hesitate to contact them again.
They have a vast knowledge of clinics, from A-Z and have liaised flawlessly with the contractors we chose – including being on call 24/7 to deal with any hiccups that were experienced.
As we were on a tight schedule, it was imperative that we used a company that we could rely on. Malcolm and Farahbod didn’t cancel or arrive late to any meetings and always brought new and interesting solutions to problems we had.
We would have no qualms about recommending to colleagues and friends.
Farahbod Nakhaei and his team at NVDC, especially Malcolm, have the knowledge, listening power, enthusiasm, experience, expertise, endurance and energy to provide a first class service with each of our projects throughout the years. With dedication and prompt service, they have been successful in all of the planning applications and change of use for new Dental Practice’s. Without their help and support, which was second to none, we have achieved very successful outcomes, which have transformed our business plans. We would thoroughly recommend NVDC Dental for any architectural and planning needs.
