Insurance Claims

Our structural engineers have provided technical support for several years in relation to domestic and commercial buildings that have been affected by subsidence, flooding, fire damage and vehicle impact.

We work with property owners, Insurers and Loss Adjusters to:

  • Assess the cause and extent of structural damage
  • Undertake monitoring programmes of subsidence damaged buildings
  • Arrange geotechnical investigations
  • Arrange materials testing
  • Arrange CCTV surveys of drainage systems
  • Prepare schedules and specifications for repair
  • Arrange and manage tenders for completing repairs
Attended the property within 4 days. Used an ipad to enter report details and photos on site. Received emailed report within 2 hours of the site visit and a written, bound report within 4 days (including the weekend!). Very professional. Would not hesitate to recommend or use again.

Thank you so much to you and your team for getting the property surveyed promptly, and for providing us with the report at such short notice. We are very grateful for the stellar service. It is such a relief that no serious defects were recorded! This report has now allowed us to take an objective view of the repairs needed.

Thank you. A friendly and efficient service. We hoped for a report that would support further steps in concluding a property procurement process with advice, technical details and costs estimates. This is what was asked for and provided in double quick time. The report was well structured with photographs providing options for remedial works.

Great service from Jane right from the start, report was great and full of detail. Sent over less than 24 hours after the survey was done. Would definitely use there service again and would recommend it to anyone.

Structural Surveys were able to arrange a survey at very short notice, kept in touch and provided a full report, first thing the following morning. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend Andrew Russell and Structural Surveys Ltd. I initially booked him because he looked like the most highly qualified structural engineer I could find. Upon meeting him, it was apparent that he was very knowledgeable, and also a very pleasant bloke, who took time to explain his findings in a much detail as I'd like. He was always available to contact to discuss any extra questions that I had and his report was delivered in record time. It put my mind at rest to have an expert opinion on the structural issues with my house and now I have a clear plan on how to deal with them. I wouldn't hesitate to use Structural Surveys Ltd again.

Thank you very much to the team at structural surveys for a reliable and supportive service plus the flexibility to accommodate subsequent requests as the application proceeded through Building Regs.
Helen Spiby-Vann - January 2019
From my very first contact with Structural Surveys, I found everyone incredibly helpful. The advice I received prior to actually instructing on the Specific Defect Report and the turnaround time on the report itself (which rather helpfully comments on areas out of scope of the specific defect instructed upon, which I'm very grateful for) was fab. A far better experience to those I've previously had with surveyors! I would certainly recommend

Quick, easy and good value for money. I will definitely recommend and use again in the future.
Scott Hymas - March 2019
Thank you to Jane, Andrew and Frazer. I am renovating my house and came across some cracks from a extension which has been built and within 48hrs of making contact the survey had been completed and issued to me with the actions required to rectify. I was under a time limit due to new floors being installed and Jane and Andrew made themselves available late in the evening to get my property booked in for a survey. Frazer took his time and thoroughly inspected the issues raised. I would use Structural Surveys Ltd again and recommend to others, thank you.
