Structural Surveys were extremely efficient and super quick, emailing over the survey report the day after the survey. They also sent me cost estimates of the recommended work in the same week. All done at a very reasonable price. Can't fault them, I am a very happy customer.

From first contact through to receiving the engineers report, Structural Services Ltd. staff were very professional. Anne O'Hare dealt with my initial request and quickly provided a very competitive quote. Once accepted Anne arranged a convenient time for the engineer's visit. Within one week and as arranged the engineer, Paul Jones arrived and made a thorough inspection of our property, and was very helpful and informative. He provided a very comprehensive structural design with beam calculations which I received within a week of his visit. Both Anne and Paul made the whole process very simple and quick. Structural Surveys Ltd. provide a great service at a very competitive price and I would recommend them to anyone needing a structural engineer.

The reason for selecting Structual Surveys to carry out a structual survey was simply because they have a good reputation excellent communications and strong focus on providing you with an excellent service. The communications received both prior to the appointment and on the day of the survey were excellent and reassuring. A timely appointment was made and a good survey concluded, and as part of the survey further advice and support was given during the survey to ensure the best possible outcome for my project (very much appreciated). A detailed three page report was completed comprising of drawings, calculations and full designers risk assessment, which ensured my building control application was also completed within a day. I would highly recommend Structural Surveys as they have a strong customer focus and provide excellent service.
