Thank you for logging on to our website - www.structuralsurveys.eu.    We are Ed and Sue Acford.   We run our Chartered Structural engineering practice from our home, a former winemakers cottage, which lies amid the vineyards and sunflower fields of the Gers, a lovely, unspoilt region of SW France.   Eddie is a Chartered Structural Engineer, a graduate of University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology.    He has a degree in building and began his career as a designer with a major European engineering company.    Over many years, Ed has worked in the UK, in the commercial and private sectors.

Sue has worked as a Secretary/PA in both legal and medical practices and now looks after the admin side of the business.

We travel extensively and have worked on projects as far afield as Brittany in the northwest of France to Bouche de Rhone in the south.  

We love our work and have the good fortune to meet many charming and interesting people from all parts of the world who, wisely, choose to re-locate to France.

The most rewarding part of our job is to know that through our technical expertise and knowledge we are able to  revive and at times, literally, save some beautiful and fascinating old buildings.

We are resident in France, registered in France and have full PI Insurance with Lloyds of London.

Finally, we would emphasise that we are a completely INDEPENDENT company.

If you have any worries about your property please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
