Structural Surveys UK are a group of Chartered Civil/Structural Engineers with over 30 years industry experience. We are experts in structural surveys/inspections of property, buildings and infrastructure assets, insurance claims/property damage, construction site surveillance, design consultancy and expert witness/dispute resolution services.

We cover many areas in Carmarthenshire including Llanelli, Ammanford, Carmarthen, Johnstown and Llandeilo. 



Construction Site Surveillance, Hinkley Point C Power Station

Our engineers have conducted construction surveillance on one of the largest infrastructure projects in Europe, the new £26B Hinkley Point C Power Station. Acting as the Subject Matter Expert (civil & structural engineering discipline) on behalf of the developer EDF, our responsibilities included design briefings to constructor prior to build for every structure (to provide clarity on the design, operational and nuclear safety requirements), on-site checks/inspections to ensure compliance with the design/specification, management of NCRs and FCRs, structural defect diagnosis, progress reporting, approvals and sign off. The wide range of infrastructure included deep tunnels/service galleries (approx. 8 miles in length), deep excavations (15 storeys in height) to accommodate large pumping station structures, heavy civil foundations for the nuclear island, conventional and other service buildings, ancillary structures, office buildings and large sea wall defences along the severn estuary/site boundary.  

Infrastructure & Facilities Management, Swansea Marina

Structural Surveys UK provided site inspection/survey and consultancy services in relation to sea defence failures at Swansea Marina in South Wales on behalf of the Welsh Government and Vinci Facilities. Our engineers carried out the initial site walkdown to assess the degree of damage to the sea defences, conducted an initial technical review of the available design and construction deliverables and recommended a number of temporary strengthening solutions to negate further deterioration until a more permanent solution was introduced. Structural Surveys UK also produced the design/specification, conducted tender procurement and project managed the construction phase to ensure the design intent was met by the contractor.

I’ve worked with the team at Structural Surveys UK for around 3 years now. They’ve helped secure instruction and save sales with their in depth surveys and quick response time. We have a great working relationship and regularly meet to come up with new ideas on how to streamline / improve the way we work. I have recommended Structural Surveys UK to friends and family and everyone who has used their services has been really impressed!

About Carmarthenshire

First established on the 1st of April 1996 following the Local Government Act 1994 which amended the Local Government Act 1972 to create the current local government structure in Wales of 22 unitary authority areas, referred to as principal areas in the Act, and abolished the previous two-tier structure of counties and districts. 

Carmarthenshire is a county in Wales, United Kingdom, located in the southwestern part of the country and is bordered by Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Powys, and Swansea Bay.

The county town is Carmarthen, which is also the largest town in the county. Carmarthenshire is known for its picturesque landscapes, including the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Black Mountain, and the Gwendraeth Valley. It is also home to several historic sites, such as the Roman fort at Carmarthen and the castle at Llansteffan.

The economy of the county is primarily based on agriculture, with farming and fishing being major industries.

Brecon Beacons National Park

Swansea’s National Waterfront Museum in Swansea can be found in the Maritime Quarter of the city. The museum tells the story of industry and innovation in Wales over the past 300 years, with a focus on the people, places and industries that have shaped the country. 

The popular tourist spot explores themes such as the Industrial Revolution, maritime history, transport and energy, and the impact of these on the people and communities of Wales.

Within you’ll find several galleries including “Power to the People” which tells the story of energy generation and distribution in Wales, “Waterfront Stories” which explores the history of Swansea’s waterfront, and “The Making of Wales” which looks at the country’s industrial heritage. It also features interactive exhibits, artifacts, and hands-on activities for visitors of all ages.

The National Waterfront Museum is located in a restored grade II listed building and it’s a great way to learn more about the history and culture of Swansea and Wales.

National Botanic Garden of Wales

The National Botanic Garden of Wales is located in Llanarthne, Carmarthenshire, Wales. It was officially opened in 2000 and is the only botanic garden in Wales. The garden features over 8,000 plant species from around the world, including a restored Victorian garden. 

You’ll also find a state-of-the-art glasshouse, which houses a Mediterranean collection, tropical rainforest, and arid desert plants. The garden also has a number of educational facilities, including a library and herbarium, as well as a conference center. 

Additionally, there are several walking trails, a playground and a café on the grounds. The National Botanic Garden of Wales is open to the public year-round and offers a variety of guided tours, workshops, and events throughout the year.

Kidwelly Castle

Kidwelly Castle is a Norman castle overlooking the River Gwendraeth and the town of Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire, Wales. The landmark is a mighty and imposing monument of Norman power. It is also a beautiful example of castle development, as the castle was dramatically altered on a number of occasions to conform to the latest thinking in military science. 

See Kidwelly Castle rising above the river Gwendraeth on a misty morning and prepare to be amazed. This is the medieval fortress of everyone’s dreams.
