When you are trying to create an exciting building, whether modern or vernacular, you need the very best from all members of the team. Mike Speak is an absolute pleasure to work with because he takes the trouble to truly understand the type of design being created. He is a great team player, full of creative and practical solutions. His practical approach means that he will strive for the best result, not just from an aesthetic point of view, but also the most cost effective one. Mike has always provided us with a timely, first class service, and I would recommend his services without reservation – he is the best structural engineer I have worked with in twenty years.

I have been using Mike speak for the last three years having moved our offices into the Worcester area and have been truly impressed with his professional service. This has been the case on all our varied projects which have ranged from cellar under pinning to steel structured balconies.
Mike has delivered a very prompt and flexible service which in all construction projects does require changes at short notice along with further calculations and these have always been met without any further delay.
 Throughout our 28 years in this business and having used the services of many structural engineers I can honestly say we have found a true gem in Mike.
I cannot recommend any one more highly and will continue to do so.

Jonny Arr, Worcester Warriors
Mike Speak Associates were appointed as Structural Engineers for the attic conversion in my house. Mike Speak dealt with the matter personally in a quick and efficient manner and I was delighted with the service provided.
Simon Sanders. Worcester
I turned to Mike after an adverse home buyer survey on my 130 year old house in Worcester. I was given sound professional advice and names of builders able to make the extensive structural repairs required. All work was completed in good order with regular checks by Mike and at a very reasonable cost. I was very pleased with the results and the house was subsequently sold to the 2nd viewer post repair.

I have known Mike Speak for a number of years and he has produced many Structural Solutions for me on behalf of my clients. I have no hesitation in recommending him to other Agents.
Alan B Wood Director of Ansam Construction Ltd.
Mike Speak structural engineers have carried out work for our company over a number of years, most recently on our grade 2 listed building The Tudor Court Malvern which we are currently developing, the works involved calculations to the roof and chimney support that some engineers we approached could not see a way around and Mike sorted it out, and our company ended up with the right result, this is exactly why our company has pleasure to recommend a person who not only knows what he is doing, can apply his vast experience to a problem and come up with the right result for the job in hand and the client.

Mike has carried out the structural design works on my recent building projects. The way I work I need people that I can talk to and who will take the time to explain and go through everything with me. Working with Mike takes the pain out of the process. He completed the designs without delay, which was important as the project got underway on time, and when my prospective buyers asked for changes in the design Mike turned the design around within hours which again resulted in no delays at all with the build. More importantly for me I find Mike friendly and approachable, always willing to help and nothing is too much trouble, even when I ask my dumb questions !. The design outputs, drawings, calculations etc. produced by Mike were all happily accepted by building control without raising any queries at all. All in all a very professional service.

Thank you for your visit to inspect the crack in the garage and for your advice on cause and remediation. We really appreciated your direct approach and the pragmatic advice on how to deal with the problem. Whilst the news was not good it could have been much worse and your advice has really put our mind at rest.

Just a quick line to thank you for your prompt and excellent service. My wife and I had been very worried about the structural defects in our property for some time. Once you were involved, everything fell together seamlessly and you managed to deal with all our concerns and came up with a solution that was nowhere near as daunting as we thought. Thank you very much for a first class service. I would not hesitate to recommend you without reservation.

I write to thank Mike Speak for the excellent service he provided in connection with the best and most economical structural way to alter and extend my 4 bedroom house. I am delighted with the garage conversion and new porch area. Most of all I am extremely pleased with my extended kitchen, huge new utility room and large sun patio. Mike’s initial advice and assistance was particularly helpful and I found him to be very understanding throughout the work, and especially over my lack of technical appreciation. He was always approachable and patient in answering my many queries and in putting my mind at rest. He also recommended a really good builder who did an excellent job at a reasonable price. I cannot praise Mike Speak highly enough.

Mike Speak has done some excellent work for us recently in connection with an extension to our house. Firstly he provided the calculations required for a reinforced steel joist. We later required his help again when part of the existing foundations where found to be unsound and he provided advice on how to rectify the situation. On both occasions we found Mike to be extremely professional and precise in his work. We would not hesitate to recommend him.
