DAVID REYNOLDS –  CSSW CSRT

Surveyor, Consultant and Principal Director

MY ROLE

Day-to-day, my fieldwork involves surveying and on-site advisory / consultancy work, plus the essential visits to the various sites and buildings that I may be involved with at any time. My office-based work involves all report writing and compiling specifications and drawings for remedial works and basement waterproofing design. 

I’m very fortunate to have an excellent and very efficient AAT qualified Accounts Manager, who attends to all financial matters as well as processsing the various guarantees and warranties that we provide, and who has the additional benefit of a background including HR / Personnel management.

ALLOCATION and WAITING TIME

Most of the time we do receive many more enquiries than it's possible to service and we therefore need to prioritise our limited survey appointments accordingly, although we will endeavour to reply to all email enquiries. 

Should your enquiry be allocated a survey or inspection, and where a COVID-SAFE ENVIRONMENT can be ensured, current lead-time for surveys and inspections is approximately 3 - 5 weeks depending on urgency and location.

In many cases we can provide advice, quotations or estimates based on sufficient photographs or drawings etc, which can be emailed to us directly for a desktop inspection.

We are still providing our popular desktop waterproofing design service.

CORONAVIRUS  -  COVID.19. 

With the Coronavirus risk reduced but still present, surveys and site inspections are largely curtailed and will be considered strictly on a risk-assessed basis and ONLY when considered to be sufficiently urgent, and strict criteria will apply.

All non-urgent inspections and surveys are now curtailed until further notice.
