Oct22196 Bell Structural Engineering provides structural engineering services to Yorkshire and surrounding areas with great honesty and efficiency. This includes structural appraisal inspections of domestic, industrial, educational, and commercial structures and buildings. It also provides structural design calculations and drawings for extensions and alterations to existing buildings. The company goes above and beyond to meet all requirements, and has successfully completed a significant number of projects based on recommendations and repeat business. Bell Structural Engineering has come a long way since its formation two years ago. It has exceeded even the most optimistic of expectations that Founder and Director, Graeme Bell had at the beginning of the journey. His team are passionate about delivering clients’ projects successfully, efficiently, and professionally, and by combining vast experience with the latest engineering equipment and software, they are able to do just that. Weekly, the company receives new structural design and survey projects, and it is able to turn a report around within a matter of days to meet clients’ challenging deadlines. Graeme says, “We pride ourselves on being able to provide this service to our clients to meet their needs. Our ability to work flexibly and, in some cases remotely, enables us to meet our clients’ demands consistently on time.” While not all small practices locally have Chartered Engineers among their staff (Chartership is a requirement for being able to undertake certain surveys), Bell Structural Engineering does. It also has the advantage of experience in non-traditional construction materials (as well as traditional materials), enabling it to complete a variety in type and value of successful projects. These projects come in all over the UK, too, with the company’s location in the North of England being beneficial for accessing the rest of England, Scotland, and Wales. The industry appears to have become busier over the last year, too, with Graeme telling us, “We have noticed an increase in the number of requests from clients to assist with home improvements. However, there has been a slight decline recently in the number of requests for structural reports undertaken on behalf of mortgage lenders.” He also observes that the number of architects and engineers forming their own companies has increased significantly over the past 18 months. For Bell Structural Engineering, this has encouraged networking with these newly formed firms and has led to an increase in workload and contacts. Ultimately, Graeme and the team are proud of the company’s achievements since its formation. Its first-year target was met within less than six months, and it has exceeded its targets again for year two. The focus over the coming months is to maintain workload and review the long-term business strategy, as well as look to hire a VA to assist with marketing and admin support. Graeme says, “We wish to thank everyone who has supported us on our journey so far, particularly our clients for the great feedback and reviews which have enabled us to build a positively strong reputation swiftly.” He adds, “Anyone looking for structural engineering services in Yorkshire and beyond, you know where we are!” Company: Bell Structural Engineering Ltd Contact: Graeme Bell Email: Website: Most Innovative Structural Engineering Company 2022
