"We found Ellis Structures highly professional, personable and adaptable. They followed our project through some quite tricky stages and gave us good advice."

I have worked with Paul Ellis and Ellis Structures since their conception and have found them to be competitive, professional and personable. The team have a wide breath of knowledge which has proved invaluable on a number of occasions. I have no problem in referring them to prospective clients for their Structural and Civil engineering requirements whatever the complexity.

Very helpful, knowledgeable, quick and precise in the service. Paul provided designs and guidance for structural changes to our house to create an open plan living space. Very happy with the result and attention to detail at the outset.

Ellis Structures gave us outstanding service when we asked for their urgent help in assessing a possible structural problem on our property. 

Within three hours of us calling them out of the blue, they had gone out to inspect the house and had come back with a detailed written report containing useful advice. Their manner was pleasant and constructive, and I highly recommend them.

Ellis Structures are brilliant. Georgia, Paul & Trevor was absolutely great. We used these Guys recently for the structure drawings for the build of our new house after already paying a Structural company who would have cost us an awful lot more money & time in the build. Ellis Structures was very helpful and their work is way above standard. Trevor has saved us so much in time and costs. We would recommend Ellis Structures to anyone who requires a Structure Engineer. We guarantee that you would not find a better company for your projects.

I sought the advice of Ellis Structures to obtain their professional view on the removal of a wall and the placement of a beam, together with structural calculations.


Georgia was able to provide an instant quote over the phone and her initial email to me showed she had given some thought and attention to my enquiry.


Getting an appointment booked was easy. The calculations and drawings were emailed over in a PDF format the day after Paul's site visit, which could then be forwarded to building control.


The standard of professionalism and service provided was second to none.   It was excellent value for money and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ellis Structures to friends and family.
