Reviews

Brilliant and efficient service. Highly recommended

5
I recently had the pleasure of working with Simon, who conducted a thorough assessment of our property. I cannot praise his service enough!
1. From the moment he arrived, it was evident that Simon was committed to efficiency. He promptly examined the areas of concern and wasted no time in getting to work.
2. As a homeowner, I had my fair share of worries about potential structural issues. However, Simon put my mind at ease. His calm demeanor and clear explanations reassured me that we were in capable hands.
3. Time was of the essence, and Simon delivered. His swift assessment allowed us to address any issues promptly. I appreciate his dedication to timely service.
4. Simon didn't just provide a report; he educated us along the way. His explanations were clear, and he patiently answered all our questions.
In summary, embodies professionalism, expertise, and a genuine commitment to their clients. I highly recommend their services to anyone seeking a reliable structural engineer.

Aleksandra, many thanks for such a great review, much appreciated. It is always a pleasure to assist by providing structural inspections and reports. Where Building Regulations Approval is required it is necessary to contact Local Authority Building Control to obtain a Completion Certificate for any work requiring this. In your case, much of the work appeared reasonable and hopefully you or the Buyer could request Retrospective Approval, as required.

Structural Calculations

5
I chose Simple Designs to assist me in achieving structural calculations required for a regularisation request I had for a rooflight fitted in 2012, without certification. Although I was not required to apply, due to the length of time the rooflight had been in situ. If I was to sell my property in the future, the lack of certification held by building Control could delay the selling process. I decided this route if I were to sell the property in years to come. My initial conversation with Simon was very informative, what seemed a complex situation, was explained to me and this put me at ease straight away. Having provided Simon with as much information as possible with some line drawings, he set to work on the calculations. A timescale of 3 weeks was given, Simon achieved this within 2 weeks excellent news for me. The whole process was slick and very professional, I was completely happy with the service provided by Simple Designs and Simon's approachability. Thank you.

Structural Calcs for rear extension

5
I recently used Simple Design Services for structural calculations for a rear extension to my property, with the requirement for several steel beams to be incorporated. Communication with Simon was first class, responses to my questions, emails and calls were quick and extremely helpful. I would certainly have no hesitation using Simple Design Services again and would highly recommend them to anyway looking for support, drawings, calcs etc from a structural engineer.
