Client Testimonials

I needed a structural Engineer urgently due to subsidence issue with my neighbour. When I called the company, they were happy to discuss my concerns and arrange an engineer to attend within a week. The engineer who attended was very professional and we felt very confident in his ability. I received the report the following week, and am so pleased that issues that were highlighted will now be taken into consideration by the neighbours party wall surveyor. I am extremely pleased with the service we received. Anne H
