We were retained as structural engineers to provide ongoing assessments and structural engineering services for this group of very important listed historic buildings. Below is a selection of the services we have provided to date.

  • Monitoring of cracks in external walls and recommendations for further investigation and remediation
  • Assessment of a number of out buildings with schedule of repairs
