Chartered Building Surveyor and Party Wall Surveyor designing buildings and extensions in Chester, Cheshire and North Wales.


Steve is a Chartered Building Surveyor and a Party Wall Surveyor with experience of over 28 years in building surveying, architectural design and planning matters.



We carry out surveys and reports advising on many types of building defects, cracks in buildings, dampness, poor workmanship and disputes where building work has not been done correctly. Steve is a Cardiff University Certified Expert Witness.


Architectural Services

Part of our service involves providing a full building design service from small extensions and new build housing through to larger scale commercial refurbishments. A full design and management service is available. We can produce sketch designs, drawings for planning applications and details for building control consent. Considering work flow and/or layout design through an option appraisal can help to provide valuable and benefits into the long term, we are not just wanting to build space but make the best use of that space for whatever you want. Working closely with our clients is important to us.


Party Wall Awards

Whether you are a Building Owner seeking to get work done to your property that has the potential to affect your neighbour or an Adjoining Owner that has received a Notice under the Party Wall Act, we are here to help and give impartial advice. Often Steve acts as an Agreed Surveyor where two neighbours get on with each other but would like reassurance from an Independent Surveyor with experience and an unbiased approach. Sometimes we advise on the need for and Party Wall Award and the best way to approach your neighbours. Steve is a member of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors.
