Structural Engineering Reports
In today’s changing market the increasing standards of acceptance by banks and building societies are producing additional burdens on individuals looking to buy or sell property. The selling process can be slowed down even where minor irregularities are evident. A structural engineering report from Michael Pooler Associates should ease this problem.
A common misconception is that any visual defect is a sure sign of subsidence. A visit by one of our experienced structural engineers will identify the reality of any anomaly and recommend a realistic and commercial view on stability without the need to expose the fabric of the property.
Our structural engineering reports are designed with the client in mind and relate entirely to the property, rather than to market conditions.

Michael Pooler Associates is able to undertake structural design in a variety of materials for building elements including foundations, piles, slabs, beams, columns, roofs, walls etc. as part of either modifications to existing structures or the construction of new developments. In addition to this we are able to offer services which include feasibility studies, planning, design, and site inspections.
One of the most frequent complaints regarding engineering works is vibration, in particular the perception of damage caused by vibration. The main sources of vibration are piling, demolition, excavation and compaction.
People tend to be very sensitive to vibration perceived in buildings and are invariably concerned about the possible structural damage to their property. Whilst in the vast majority of cases the magnitude of vibration is below the level of reasonable risk of damage, MPA can deliver objective assessments and assurances to alleviate any concerns.
