Richard Herrmann Associates was formed in 1987 and has been going from strength to strength ever since.

In 2011, Richard Herrmann decided to ‘pass the baton’ to Martin Bates and Richard Ponter, who became the company principles, having both worked alongside Richard for many years. The existing client base has since received the same commitment to quality of service following this change of hands.

Our aim is, at all times, to assist our clients to procure their projects on time and within budget. We do this by anticipating and solving problems before they occur on site. Having this input upfront usually saves the client our fee costs many times over! 

Located in Huntingdon, within easy travelling distance of Cambridge, Peterborough and London, we provide our structural engineering consultancy services within East Anglia, London and the Central counties, although we are not limited to these areas. Previous projects have included as far north as Scotland, as far south as Guernsey and also within Europe.

If you feel that we might be able to assist with your project please feel free to contact us, either by completing our contact form or giving us a call on 01480 455179. We'd be delighted to hear from you.

What Our Clients Say


"Richard Hermann Associates have always been professional and approachable, I have used them for my structural engineering requirements over the last five to six years. Both Richard Ponter and Ryan McAllister have been very supportive with a recently difficult project. I would always reccomend their services to anyone looking for structural engineers."

Neil R. Irons Ltd

Very professional and helpful service

"Richard and Ryan were both great in assisting me with works that we carried out at a Public House in Bedford. Very helpful and professional service with in depth detailing and calculations provided for both the contractors to carry out the works and for submission to Building Control. I would highly recommend them."

Nik S.

Structural Assessment

"I contacted Richard Herrmann to attend one of my factories to access the structural strength of the roof joists. The cost of a site visit was reasonably priced, within a matter of days I had the report in my hand. This is the second time I have used Richard Herrmann Associates, very impressed with the service, I will be using Richard Herrmann Associates again in the future."

Simon R.

Provided a swift assessment of a potential problem

"Richard came to our property to review a potential problem with a number of cracks that had appeared on internal walls in a number of rooms. After conducting a detailed investigation of the problem and examining external walls Richard was able to swiftly re-assure us that the cracks were not related to any major structural problems. He has also recommended 2 builders to help us fix a minor problem on one wall. We would be happy to use Richard again if required."

Stuart P

Structural survey and design

"RH Associates proved to be a great choice following the structural survey completed by Richard Ponter. Very professional in approach, quality of work proved to be spot on and also completed in very quick fashion.

Richard is a lovely guy and would thoroughly recommend him and the company for any structural survey/design/planning work to anyone who needed it! Huge thanks  :)"
