Martin Perry Associates are a Structural Engineering and Surveying Consultancy, based in south east Cornwall. We have many years of experience in all aspects of construction, and are able to offer a multitude of services, from Structural Design, to Party Wall Surveying, and Contract Administration.

As Structural Engineers we work with several local Architects, Developers and Building Contractors, and our projects range from the design of a simple beam, to grand scale new buildings. We are experienced in working with traditional historic buildings of natural stone and cob construction, and are equally at home designing and detailing the latest construction techniques, including steel and timber frames, ICF and traditional masonry.

We are Chartered Surveyors and a RICS registered firm. We offer a range of surveying services including reports on construction defects, damp problems, project feasibility and Party Wall Surveying. For a detailed overview of the services we offer, as well as a guide to the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 please see our services page.

What Our Clients Say...

We have worked with Martin on a number of projects and we are pleased with the quality and efficiency of his work. Martin Perry Associates has quickly become a company we enjoy working with and one we recommend to our clients. We look forward to working with them on many more projects in the future


We engaged Martin Perry Associates to advise us whilst we made structural modifications to our home. The advice was second to none from the start, their drawings were clear and Richard made himself available to answer any queries and support us as the building work got underway. We are glad we chose Martin Perry Associates and will be engaging them for our next project.

Mathew Booth

After a flood in our holiday flat in Cornwall, Martin oversaw the process of restoring the place to its former glory and always had our interests at the forefront of things. Communication was key as we were abroad during the whole process and Zoom meetings plus his efficient email communication really helped to guide and reassure us through the process. In fact we have ended up with Martin’s help, enhancing a key aspect of the property. We were also delighted with the builders/decorators that Martin recommended. Highly recommend Martin and his team.

Rachel Burnett

Used Martin’s services as we required a structural engineer. Martin went above and beyond this service as we had to get back in contact after he provided us with his report and continued to over additional information outside the of the service we paid for. Professional, approachable, affordable, flexible and considering.

Highly recommended.
