Carley Daines & Partners have undertaken over 10,000 Structural Engineer’s Reports over a period in excess of 30 years. Such reports are frequently required at a time of sale to satisfy a potential purchaser and their Building Society that a property remains in a satisfactory and structurally stable condition.
Structural Engineer’s Reports generally fall into two categories.
Firstly, the engineer may be asked to comment upon a single specific defect, such as a crack, (say) to a corner of a building, a bulge to a wall, or excessive deflection to the roof structure.
Secondly, the engineer might be requested to carry out an appraisal of the building as a whole. This may be required due to an overall tilt in the building (which is common in coal mining areas) or because there are significant defects in several parts of the building.
In addition to the above, Carley Daines & Partners provide full advice, design, and supervision of remedial works, particularly in underpinning schemes and methods of structural repair and stabilisation.
