Versineer prides itself on offering innovative and cost effective solutions to structural problems.

Pre-Purchase Survey

A pre-purchase survey puts you in a position to discuss the implications of purchase with the vendor or tradesmen and to make an informed decision on whether to proceed with the purchase.

We provide a survey with a verbal report on site or by telephone, enabling a full discussion regarding your proposed purchase.

Clients are often unsure whether a written report will be required until they have had the results of the survey. Therefore in order to give our client flexibility, in the offer we price separately for the written report.

In addition to reporting any defects found, our reports will include guidance on the implications of the defects and will suggest remedial actions.

Our offers for pre-purchase surveys are made on a fixed fee basis, with no additional charges.

Structural Survey

A structural survey may be required for a number of reasons, typically:

  • As a result of damage.
  • Renovation projects.
  • Improvements and alterations.

In the case of damage we determine the cause and implications of the damage. We will then discuss with you the various possible solutions in order that you can make an informed decision on how to proceed, based on your preferences, taste and budget.

A written report of the survey can be provided, as well as calculations and drawings for any works that may be required.

Our offers for structural surveys are usually made on a fixed fee basis, with no additional charges. A further offer would be made for any designs or drawings required following the survey; see the Structural Calculations and Drawings section below for further details.

Structural Designs, Calculations and Drawings

For all your structural engineering needs, whether;

  • individual elements such as foundations, beams and columns or whole structures
  • new build, renovation or repair
  • DIYer or for a professional builder / contractor

We provide designs which are tailored to your requirements and sympathetic to the building. Therefore our designs take the many variables into account; for example, the aesthetics, the builders ability and the availability of equipment and materials, to give cost effective solutions. We will often provide alternative solutions to give our clients and their builders the option to use the solution most suited to their requirements.

For the larger and more complicated projects Tim's understanding of structural mechanics and his flair for seeing both conventional and unconventional solutions to the design requirements, often result in buildings that are closer to the clients wishes and for a lower cost that would otherwise have been the case.
