Swansea Structural Surveys.jpg


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 Swansea including Morriston, Llansamlet, Gorseinon, Fforestfach, Uplands and Mumbles.



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!
