E.A.T ltd is jointly owned by Cathy and Julian Carter. The company was started in 2008 to provide support to the engineering and construction sector. In 2017 Cathy joined the company, as equal partners, to expand the companies portfolio to include IT Consultancy and Project Management Services.
EAT Ltd is based in West Yorkshire, and whilst keen to offer our services here and the surrounding areas, we also have experience and passion for international projects. We work from several disciplines including Civil engineering and Structural engineering but can offer other services like General IT and Project Management/Consultancy, Emergency engineering, training and providing Expert witness.
Those who have worked closely with me, value my patience and intellect; I empower, I have no need to control. I love to share and every time I do so, I learn something new; the more I give, the more I get. Money comes as a virtue of honest labour; life and learning is my enjoyment; being able to share (if people are interested) is an honour.

When we receive notification from MyBuilder that we have been 'shortlisted', we will call you, take your details, make an appointment and send you out a quote for the work. We then ask that you discuss this with us if needed and then sign and return your acceptance for us to proceed; via message/photograph and could not be simpler.
We can assess and design your project and then help to deliver it. We can undertake pre-project surveys to identify risks and opportunities, for all property types, including Listed Buildings. We love referrals and we talk to our Clients as equals.
Repair and renovation is also a speciality and we pride our understanding that no two projects are the same, hence our bespoke attitude and time we will take communicating with you. We can also be brought into your project if there is a need for ‘Structural Rescue’.
