Structural Engineering

Structural Defects

  • If you are buying or selling a house…
  • If you are purchasing, leasing or selling commercial premises…
  • If you have discovered a problem with your present property…
  • If you are undertaking building works and require a structural design and/or structural calculations….
  • If you need advice on a specific structural problem…

We can -

  • Investigate, advise and report on specific structural defects, cracking, movement, distortion, deterioration or other failure or damage to your property.
  • Tailor design and structural calculations for solutions to structural problems, and to satisfy the requirements of Local Authority Building Control.
  • Advise with regard to any type of residential or commercial property, boundary walls, drives, paths, roads, pavements or hard landscaping. 

Do you require a Residential Homebuyers, Mortgage Valuation or General Purchase Survey?

If you do, you may wish to click here to visit the website of Robinson Elliot - Independent Surveyors covering London and the South-East

Has your survey thrown up a problem?

If you have had a Homebuyers, Mortgage Valuation or General Purchase Survey completed on a property, the Surveyor may have identified one or more specific structural problems and may have recommend that a Chartered Building Surveyor or Chartered Structural Engineer is appointed to investigate further - this is the point where we can become involved.

We visit, investigate the specific problem, report on its causation and advise on its resolution.

Sometimes intrusive investigations (trial pits/bore holes, soil and root sampling, drains tests) are necessary, and we can arrange these too if required.
