I have worked along with Scott now on a couple of projects and every time has been a pleasure. Always professional and reliable. It is refreshing to work alongside a fellow party wall surveyor of such high calibre. Look forward to working with you again

Andrew, Erith, Kent

Scott was extremely quick to reply and arrange a condition report, when I required one between my neighbour and I on short notice. He responded quickly to my calls and was very helpful in providing me with advice and guidance during this process.
