If you discover that you have a structural problem with your home it can be very daunting. CBF, led by Roy Brain, are very competent structural and consulting engineers whose experience identifies and resolves issues giving one piece of mind and total confidence in the outcome. Thank you so much Roy and the team.
Happy Client – Wreningham, Norwich
When I was first faced with the situation retrospectively gaining the council sign off, through no fault of my own, it was extremely stressful and seemingly not a lot of support or information readily available.
When it became clear I needed the services of a structural engineer I got a few quotes, but none were anywhere near as helpful, informative and accommodating of the situation as yourselves. Throughout the communication and support from both Roy and Becky has been exemplary, for which I am very appreciative. My dad also commented on what a pleasure it was to meet and work with you yesterday.
Its actually been a massive weight off my mind at a time that has been difficult for a number of reasons. Throughout the process I’ve spoken to a lot of people from the Council Building Control, Independent Building Control firms, other structural engineers, and Roy was by far the most helpful and logical. I’m really thankful that I contacted your firm.
Couldn’t recommend you and your company higher, to anyone who requires a similar service.
Mr and Mrs Bates – West Norfolk Coast
Thank you so much for your help! We appreciate the efficiency of your work, the initiative you took in contacting the relevant parties, and the clarity you present on the issue which caused a lot of confusion to us.
Your help is much appreciated and hopefully will help to move things forward.
Peter Schmitz, Hyper Property Company
We recently used Calvert Brain & Fraulo in relation to a structural fault on a property on the Norfolk coast. The service and knowledge delivered by Roy Brain was excellent. They went over and above in assisting with contractors to do the works. I would have no hesitation in recommending them or using their services again.

First Class Service
Hi, I was lucky enough to come across Calvert Brain and Fraulo Ltd when I was looking for a really quick turnaround of a report on a property before exchange of contracts. The service was amazing – John Rasberry and Becky Harper were incredibly helpful and delivered exactly what I needed for a more than fair price given the tight time scale. My brother-in-law who restores Listed Buildings was frankly staggered to hear of such service: I have passed your details on to him for future reference. A big Thank You again. I exchanged contracts today!
Hamid – Reigate
Exceptional professionalism and service
We commissioned Calvert Brain & Fraulo Architectural Ltd to prepare architectural Building Regs drawings for our home extension project together with Calvert Brain & Fraulo Ltd to undertake the necessary structural engineering calculations and designs.
The project was a huge undertaking for us due to the complexity of the alterations to the existing property and the open plan nature of the large extension.
Our experience of the service provided by the two complementary companies has been exceptional and we cannot recommend them highly enough. They were very sensitive to our exacting requirements and the tight budget we were working with and worked creatively and cleverly to deliver them. Throughout the project the team communicated with us, explained the issues, offered options and always delivered on or before the deadlines. In our experience, their speed of response, flexibility, attention to details, and level of professionalism has been nothing short of perfect.
Alex Wood – Jersey
CBF have been extremely effective from initial design which was accurate and required little to no modification for fabricators manufacture. Issues raised in architectural design in terms of fixing and curtain wall complexities were smoothly and methodically resolved by CBF to ensure aesthetics were practically buildable. The quality of work has always been excellent and they are promptly responsive and are well versed with the project documents to all professional parties be it architects, planning or procurement of key elements, all calculations and issues we comprehensive in issue and detail. It’s been our pleasure to discover that CBF were part of our project. I am confident they would help make any project a success from a client’s perspective, the contractor and, of course, BCO. We enthusiastically recommend their services, experience and competence.
