“Structural Engineering Services understand structure very well and
always specifies steels that are ‘right’ for the job as opposed to churning
out the same old schemes that work structurally but are not in the best
interests of the build. We like to use certain steels/layouts on our projects
and Structural Engineering Services always tried to accommodate our requests
after checking that they work from an engineer’s perspective. Some engineers
are rigid in their approach but Structural Engineering Services are very
flexible and helpful which can save a whole lot of time and money on a job
and they often produce drawings and supporting calculations in a matter of
days which is a real bonus. I can’t recommend these engineers highly
enough.”
