Had Tanya scope out some work for us and found her to be completely incompetent in any practical sense. Total lack of common sense and problem solving skills. Would not recommend.

Dear Tim, Thank you for your review however as explained to your wife, we completed a site visit and then provided a structural drawing showing how to do the work you requested. We then completed a follow up inspection at your request. At no point have you previously advised we did not do the job properly or followed up with us following the second visit. You have only complained since we invoiced for the work we completed. Should you wish to discuss further please feel free to contact our Practice Manager

Steve and the team were able to swiftly reassure us regarding an issue with our loft which we were concerned about. They were prompt in their responses and went above and beyond to get us answers we needed.

The service was prompt and advice excellent. Steve, the Practice Manager, was helpful and professional. He guided me by explaining the various services and directed me to precisely the sort of report that was needed. Sam, the engineer, provided a thorough and helpful report having liaised with my agents about access to my property. It was all dealt with promptly and the charges were competitive. I would recommend this practice to anyone. More...

The speedy service from MRA was second to none, they made the whole process easy, the engineer was really friendly and very helpful and I had my temporary drawings within a few days which meant I could proceed with the next stage of my project.

Martin Redston Associates were great to work with! I needed a structural engineer to urgently review an internal wall that I had removed. They were very personable, incredibly responsive (coming out to assess the work within days) and the report produced was comprehensive and user friendly. I would definitely recommend them! More...

This is the second time we've used Martin Redston and Associates. They are very efficient and professional. I would highly recommend them.

29 July 2020

We used Martin Redston for an structural assessment as we want to do some changes in the layout of our house, removing internal and altering external walls.
They have produced a good very comprehensive report for us with all the calculations needed to support the required walls. This report and drawings can now be used to apply for building control.
They were very professional, and, although it took a bit of chasing to get the survey done, we are happy with the result and we were not so much in a rush.
We also thought their price was very reasonable compared to other firms which are not even chartered.
I would recommend it to my friends, no doubt about it.
Thank you

Early stages of planning refurbishment of flat involving potential structural work and therefore needing professional assurance to gain approval. Martin clearly has a great deal of experience and so the process of assessing my options and and what is possible was far more straightforward than I had imagined. He was pragmatic in his approach, gave helpful ideas and is also a nice guy. A definite recommendation. More...

Having recommended Martin Redston Assoc for many years and receiving an excellent response from clients, i recently had the delightful opportunity of meeting Paul Smith who carried out a survey for my own home. Paul's explanation, experience, expertise and charming way of being was a pure pleasure and cannot recommend this practice of structural surveyors more highly. Thank you More...

You won’t find a superior, more qualified and aimiable engineer than Martin. He has a plethora of knowledge and experience that takes decades to amass. What’s more, he’s always available to talk things through and will continuously ensure you are aware what the most economical options are for your steel configurations. We all want to lose the columns and open things out, but that comes at a cost. Martin makes sure you are aware not only of the additional cost in steel, but also the additional construction costs (deeper foundations requiring shuttering, necessity for a crane etc). He’s a great guy with a fabulous sense of humour. If you need a structural engineer, he’s your man! More...

Martin Redston Associates are fast and efficient. They came recommended by our party wall surveyor, and were easy to work with. They answered my questions regarding the engineering portion of our loft work in a language that I could understand. While we have not yet done the building work for the loft, we're pleased with the design and administration portion of our interactions with them, and highly recommend them to others. Additionally, their pricing was very reasonable in comparison to other firms that we looked at. We therefore have no hesitation in highly recommending them. More...

Good overall. However, I asked for a report and provided them with the Council's request including details. I expected them to advice me on how to comply with the request but instead they provided a report which eventually was not the one needed. Perhaps we both needed to communicate better. More...
