Home Owner Services

Our services include structural surveys, extension design, alterations and remodelling, retaining wall design and beam calculations, plus expert services including Party Wall Advice.

We are friendly, professional and highly experienced Chartered Structural Engineers and with offices in Derby, Leicester, Stafford and Warwick and from these local offices we cover the whole of the Midlands, for large projects we work UK wide.

If you notice movement or cracking to your property our Chartered Structural Engineers will undertake a Structural Survey which will provide information as to what is causing the problem, if other factors are involved and advise what remedial works need to be completed to stabilise the building.

Occasionally a site specific Survey can be completed, but more often than not a whole structure needs examining to find the cause.

If you have large trees nearby or underground streams these could be affecting the foundations and we may recommend trial holes to be dug to enable a visible inspection of the depth and quality of the foundations.
