Structural Assessment

Since being formed in 1977 HWA have produced structural engineers reports on over 10,000 residential and commercial properties. This invaluable knowledge bank enables us to check for trends that might suggest a structural defect with a particular type of building or ground conditions in an area that tend to result in foundation movement.
If you are buying a property and you or your surveyor suspect that a structural problem may exist or if you simply require advice about a property that you already own, we would be pleased to help. We also inspect and report on suspected problems in connection with insurance claims and legal disputes.

Our reporting service delivers the following key benefits:

• Full visual inspection by a qualified chartered engineer
• Clear, jargon-free written report
• Sensible and practical recommendations
• Trial holes and CCTV drains tests arranged *
• Contractors arranged for remedial works *

* If required

We also offer a specialist reporting service to the solar PV market. We have carried out over 1000 solar panel roof assessments for both domestic and commercial properties providing installers and building owners with the advice that they need prior to installation. We offer a tailored service to suit clients’ requirements ranging from a desk-based study (using measurements, images and other data provided by the installer) up to a full site survey and comprehensive report.
