If you are moving home, or are a property owner wanting an extension, loft conversion or room knock-through, expert help is here!

F Summerfield is a chartered consulting, civil, structural and municipal engineer (part of Torplan Ltd). The practice offers property health checks, full structural surveys, insurance claim reviews, underpinning assessments, calculations for structural steel, brickwork, timber and stone design work, planning applications and building regulation submissions. Jobs have ranged from plans for domestic house extensions to industrial new builds and, more recently, structural designs for a TV broadcasting studio and a suspension bridge.

Frank Summerfield, an ‘old boy’ of Stockport Grammar School, graduated with Honours in Municipal Engineering from Manchester University, before becoming a Chartered Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers. He majored in heavy civil, structural and hydraulic engineering and was subsequently elected a Member of the Institution of Structural Engineers. In local government, he developed a flair for management, becoming a Fellow of the Institution of Municipal Engineers.

Some six years of international work broadened Frank’s knowledge and experience, developing his expertise in data presentation and report writing on technical topics. Having a close familiarity with the law has given perspectives that are reflected in advice presented in concise and relevant reports, following assessments and inspections.

F Summerfield, Independent Consulting, Chartered Engineering practice, was established in 1974. The business had office secretarial facilities – typing, scanning, photocopying, plan printing, document binding, encapsulating etc – so Frank decided to offer these services alongside his engineering practice and created “The Type & Copy Shop”. Both businesses are part of Torplan Ltd, operating from the same office in Stockport.
