Industrial structures are complex combinations of design, construction and materials. When factors such as environmental conditions, the location of the structure and occupancy are considered, the complexities grow deeper.
Our engineers inspect structural systems as well as offer deep understanding of the many materials used to build them. Their knowledge can uncover the particular failure mechanisms of a structure as well as any contributing factors including foundations, walls, floors, ceilings, roofs and framing. We inspect, analyze and perform research to determine the cause of a loss, provide a scope of damage and evaluate the structure’s overall condition.
Our work extends far beyond loss investigation and analysis. We provide construction cost opinions for insurance claims and construction defect litigation, and perform more specialized estimating services including betterment analysis.
