From my first point of contact, everything was seamless. The Structural Engineer who attended my property was Tim, he was extremely friendly and professional, he listened to what I wanted and without any issues supplied me with a very detailed report. This was submitted to building control and was passed without any amendments. I would not hesitate in recommending Simplify Structural Engineers to anyone. Thank you for a faultless service.
Fantastic company, professional, polite and competitive price for the report. The engineer, Robert Hardman, was great. Professional and took his time to explain everything and reassured us. Reception staff are also very friendly and always happy to help. Would definitely use again and recommend. Thank you Simplify!
Simplify Structural Engineering are absolutely fantastic and I'd absolutely recommend them. They've provided the drawings and calculations for several internal/external wall knock throughs, chimney breast removals and two basement conversions. This included underpinning calculations and tanking/drainage solutions. All designs have worked fantastically with no issues at all. Robert and his teams knowledge across all areas of construction is second to none. As is there knowledge of building materials allowing them to offer cost effective solutions to any problems encountered during the builds. Great communication and very reasonably priced- could not recommend more highly!
My initial enquiry went to Jayne who was very helpful as was Nadine and Dan further down the line. I was kept informed what was to happen and when as I'd opted for a virtual inspection by Robert. I cannot fault the service I received as I'd asked for a speedy report and it was delivered right on time which enabled my work to continue on schedule. I would not hesitate recommending Simply Engineering to anybody as I found them all very helpful to a complete novice like myself.
A professional company who provide solutions at competitive costs and are an excellent organisation to deal with.
So helpful and professional throughout the process. They very quickly came up with a solution to an issue that materialised. Very much appreciated. Good company to deal with.

Pre-purchase Structural Reports:
Braunston Road, Oakham – a house seller required a structural report as the buyer’s surveyor had concerns regarding external wall cracks and suspected subsidence. The client selected us as we are a local Leicester based team of structural engineers. Based on our findings, the cracks were caused by defective lintels and thermal movement of the building.
Tentercroft Avenue, Syston – a house seller required a pre-purchase structural report as the buyer’s surveyor recommended that the roof should be replaced. Based on our site inspection, Simplify Engineering determined that the purlins required strengthening and an installation of collar ties would suffice, instead of a full roof replacement.
