About Martin Perry Associates
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.
Formerly part of Philip Goacher Associates, the south west office was taken over by Martin Perry Associates, maintaining the same team, and continuing to work with a similar approach and high standard of service. We retain a close tie with Philip Goacher Associates, who are based in Sussex, and cover the south east of England.
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.
An Overview of our Services
For domestic scale projects, including extensions and roof conversions, we can offer an all-inclusive service, from gaining Planning Permission or Listed Building Consent, through to provision of Building Regulations Applications and construction details.
We regularly work with Loss Adjusters and Insurance Companies, acting as Contract Administrator in order to rebuild properties following damage due to issues such as flood, fire or subsidence. We pride ourselves on providing a high level of service to our clients during what can be a very tough time, in order to try to make the process as straightforward as possible.
We are experienced Party Wall Surveyors, and are happy to offer free telephone advice on the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. As expert Party Wall Surveyors, we can help you to successfully negotiate any Party Wall matter affecting your property.
