Our clients range from private individuals to commercial organisations and we pride ourselves in providing a fast and efficient service and strive to find the most practical and economic solution for any task.
We offer all the services normally associated with an engineering and building consultancy such as the design of buildings and foundations. We also provide specialised core services which include:
Engineer’s Reports for individuals buying and selling houses.
Party Wall Act matters.
Structural design and investigation.
An Engineer’s Report should be prepared by a Chartered Engineer who will be a member of the Institution of Civil or Structural Engineers. The inspection will include a visual examination of the main load bearing elements of the structure. It will deal with matters relating to the strength, stability and structural performance of the building. An experienced Engineer will be able to recognise specific areas which have been recently repaired and redecorated. These areas may be vulnerable to movement that is related to subsidence or settlement.
Party Wall Act
The Party Wall etc Act 1996 makes provision to ensure that the wall separating 2 properties is not likely to be damaged by any building work carried it to it by either neighbour. The Act also covers parts of the building that may be vulnerable to damage caused by nearby excavations. We have particular experience in matters arising under the Party Wall Act and are fully qualified party wall specialists. We can act as party wall surveyors on behalf of either the building owner or adjoining owner. We can help anyone who is planning work which may fall under the Party Wall Act or other individuals such as a neighbour, who is likely to be affected by party wall issues.
Design & Investigation
We design of all types of concrete, steel, brick and timber structures in the industrial, commercial and domestic sectors. Foundation designs are also produced for all types of ground conditions. Our services also include the investigation of building defects and advice on the technical aspects of insurance claims. We have a wealth of experience in the investigation of structural and geotechnical issues especially on sites vulnerable to subsidence and landslip.
Testimonials for Nick Cooke:
If you’re in any doubt as to the structural soundness of a property you may be thinking of buying, then a Structural Survey is essential. Neither a Homebuyers Report or Building Survey will give you the information you need, however Nick Cooke & Associates will provide you with peace of mind that you are investing in a property that is safe and sound. We can highly recommend their services.
I asked Nick to visit my property and to inspect some minor structural damage. The advice received was excellent and helped to put my mind at rest.
Nick is very professional and thorough, his prices are fair and the service excellent. I would have no problem in recommending Nick to any friends, family or clients.
