Locations covered in Kent






Tunbridge Wells

Survey of unconverted oast

Location: Kent

Our client was looking to purchase this oast building with the intention of converting it into a house. They instructed us to conduct a full survey to highlight any structural issues and concerns.


  • Visited and surveyed the building
  • Reported on several issues
  • The client was able to include costs in their budget before purchasing

Subsidence damage

Location: Tunbridge Wells

This building was showing signs of ground movement, (subsidence), causing damage to some of the outer walls. The owner of the building was concerned, and wanted to stop it getting worse.


  • We attended to the site and took measurements
  • Monitored the movement
  • Designed underpinning
  • Building contractors implemented underpinning according to our specification & made repairs to the cracks

Conversion of church into flats

Location: High Street, Herne Bay

The client had purchased this beautiful old church and had obtained planning permission to create five 2-bedroom flats and one 1-bedroom flat inside the building without impacting the exterior. It was a challenging project owing to the protected nature of the building and the demands of the client’s plans.


  • Full site survey, drawings and calculations
  • We designed structure to suit the client’s plans but not to impact the appearance of the external walls
  • The client was able to complete the project and realise their original vision for the building
