What is a structural engineer, and why do I need one?
Structural engineers work in aspects of construction such as the design of buildings and non-building structures, monitoring of structural problems and making recommendations for remedial action.
As Chartered Civil and Structural Engineers, we are able to provide consultancy services for issues such as subsidence and underpinning, cracking, uneven floors, wall ties and disputes. Oliver Springett, the director, is also available as an expert witness.
Springett Associates have experience with smaller projects such as extensions to houses and loft conversions, shop refurbishment and design of entire small buildings, including schools. We also have extensive experience in design on major projects, including office blocks, large houses, apartment complexes, and large shop refurbishments. Oliver has expertise in the area of heritage and buildings conservation.
