Structural Engineering

Clarke Matthews has a wide experience of structural engineering in all sectors of industry.

We can provide sound logical, valuable and practical 'buildable' solutions to our Clients from the concept stage right through to completion, utilising Autodesk Revit, Tekla and CSC software to design in steel, concrete, timber and masonry.  Our designs will always be in strict conformance to industrial standards and we are committed to using BIM techniques and methods.

Structural Surveys

Commercial:  Structural surveys and reports are carried out to our Client's requirements, considering factors such as the age of the building, construction details and materials used.  We are particularly experienced in subsidence and building movement issues and are able to provide reports specifically focused on addressing any problems identified, advising on appropriate remedial works.  We can subsequently provide Project Management services if necessary to design and manage remedial works.  

Domestic:  As qualified structural engineers, we can undertake domestic building inspections for owners and for potential buyers of property.  Reports will advise the owner or buyer of a course of action that will be most appropriate and cost effective.  Please contact us for a quotation.

Boundary Walls:  We also have good experience in reporting on the condition and relative safety of boundary walls of either modern or traditional construction.  Our report will advise on remedial works where appropriate and we can again provide Project Management services if required.


Using the latest 3D design software packages along with traditional 'hand calculations' where appropriate, we provide a cost effective and efficient way of achieving the desired design.
