This was the first time I'd used Structural Services Ltd and from the first contact, I found them pleasant, efficient and helpful. Andrew was brilliant and took the time to talk me through the salient points of his report, giving me the chance to ask questions. His experience was evident and was very good to deal with. He issued his detailed report very swiftly and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Thank you!

Working in the consultancy industry and knowing the value of clear communication and quality of information being essential to any decision making, I would highly recommend Structural Surveys. Be it residential property, development feasibility or managing a portfolio as part of an asset management strategy, the service and confidence provided by Ray Panther and the team should be used as an industry quality benchmark.

Very professional from start to finish, kept to timescale and quoted price, gave excellent feedback on what was required to out-sort our problem with a part removed chimney breast. Would not hesitate to recommend Structural Surveys.

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.
Andrew Robinson - December 2016
I was recommended to Structural Surveys Limited for a full structural survey. I spoke to Andrew Russell on the phone first, then googled him. Andrew was a very pleasant and professional person. Having arranged the survey, I had the report the following morning by email and also a bound copy in the post. I found the report most honest and very helpful and professional. The survey was in great detail with all relevant photos per reported areas. I would highly recommend Structural Surveys Limited.

The service has been excellent, Chris was extremely professional and very helpful when he visited the property, clearly articulating what would be provided, and responding clearly to any questions I had. I also appreciated the quick response to getting the drawings to me following payment.
