"The Ellis Belk report is superb - it's detailed, very well laid out, structured, shows evidence, shows both opinion & fact, is compelling and very professional; bottom line is that it made me read on. Please ensure Rod is praised for it".


"I want to thank you personally for your considerable help in carrying through the project. I know it wouldn't have gone so smoothly if you hadn't be on hand to deal with issues as quickly as you were when they arose".


"Having worked successfully with [Ellis Belk] and his Practice for many years, I commissioned [Ellis Belk] to undertake a Condition Survey of an office block. [Ellis Belk] was quick to respond and he soon pulled a team of trusted consultants and specialists together. 

Their report (so far as I can tell anyway), was extremely thorough and was certainly presented in a clear and concise manner such that a busy, (non-technical) person like me could quickly assimilate; helping enormously in the decision to purchase the building. 

For reasons that had nothing to do with the survey we were forced to abandoned the project at one stage and to look at alternative buildings. Once again [Ellis Belk] was instantly on hand to offer advice and guidance and it was a comfort to know that he had our best interests at heart. 

In fact throughout this process, I continued to be genuinely impressed by the breadth and depth of [Ellis Belk's] knowledge and experience on all property matters, not merely those that were construction-related. This is something that is difficult to put a price on, but to me it was invaluable.

I therefore have no hesitation in recommending [Ellis Belk] to anyone considering purchasing/altering/refurbishing offices or indeed seemingly any building of any type"!

His reports and other documents prepared for the tribunal were first rate and delivered in good time sometimes at short notice.He gave evidence confidently and convincingly.He was very helpful throughout and an excellent team player. I have no hestitation in recommending him".

In addition he is a thoroughly decent chap. I would happily recommend him to anyone.

Now that the project is all but finished I wanted to thank you for all the help and consideration you gave for the project.

It's not something I would want to go through again, and I don't know how you do it, but the team assembled in Ellis Belk and Spetisbury could not have been better and I have thanked them individually.


I would like to personally thank you and all your team at Ellis Belk for their invaluable support and skilful and knowledgable assistance on the RNLI All-weather Lifeboat Centre project with both architectural and town planning services.

I look forward to the opening ceremony next year and seeing the fruits of all our hard work!
