Structural Inspections

Buying a property can be the biggest investment in both emotional and monetary terms; often, more so than anything else in our life.

At Thomas Consulting, we understand this, and work with all parties involved to expedite the inspection and report to allay your concerns and provide a thorough report regarding your new home.

STRUCTURAL INSPECTION REPORTS:

Our structural inspection reports can provide you with reassurance regarding the structural integrity of your new home, with defects identified with recommendations for remedial works. The inspection is undertaken by a Chartered Engineer (CEng) either with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) or Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE).

Your valuation report may have already indicated areas of concern that may need further examination; our structural inspection report can help address the queries the valuation report raises.

We will undertake a visual inspection of those items that are typically associated with the structural fabric of the property; such as, floors, walls, roof and where exposed foundations. Where external factors such as, drains, trees and ground conditions may affect foundations, these will also be noted in the report with further recommendations for remedial works or investigation.

A message from Thomas Consulting
Here at Thomas Consulting as other organisations during this time of uncertainty with COVID-19 we are responding to the Government recommendations to try and reduce the spread of the virus. Staff have been made aware of the steps that need to be taken if they show any signs of the infection or have been in contact with others with the symptoms and are updated with any changes daily. That said we are focused on delivering safe, reliable on-going support to both new and existing clients; having implemented measures to ensure that we are able to have staff working remotely (i.e. at home) reducing their contact both with each other and clients to keep all as safe as is possible.

Unfortunately site meetings are postponed until the current restrictions are reviewed and updated and each meeting/site visit will be assessed individually at that time. All other elements of each project will continue to be progressed where possible and each member of the team will be updating clients on their progress.

Thomas Consulting are committed to continue to review the Governments recommendations and make the necessary changes that enable our projects to be delivered on time collaboratively during this period with the minimum amount of risk.

Unfortunately this is going to be an ongoing process for the next few months with constant review; however should you need to contact any member of our team the following numbers will always be available during our normal working hours of 9am - 5pm Monday - Friday 01743 237940 (Shrewsbury), 01772 299040 (Chorley) and 01524 846022 (Lancaster).
