Does any-one have an up to date recommendation of a local structural engineer? I'd love some advice on chimney breast removal.

I have an local ideal person in mind but PM me for more info Molly.

Have seen loads of Chimney Breast removals done by cowboys & DIYers over the years with alarming results, people need to be super aware of the structural requirements when doing this job & def not a job for an amateur ! You will only devalue the price of your property.

When we were househunting around CP, we saw a house over on Bedwardine Rd where the chimney breast had been removed on the ground floor. Then we went upstairs and noticed that it hadn't been removed on the first! The guy from the estate agent "hadn't noticed it" but said he was sure it had been done properly. Went back down to the ground floor, and this time we noticed how the ceiling was bowing!
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

Hi, could someone recommend a local structural engineer, please? The ones recommended on this website are very busy, and the ones I found through Google advertisements are very expensive..  

Any advice would be appreciated!
