Civil & Structural Damage Assessments

We live in a complicated environment comprised of residential homes, commercial buildings, bridges, and related infrastructure.  Construction practices and procedures require the involvement of architects, engineers, managers, and laborers in processes that are many layers deep.  When a building or structure fails, the analysis of the failure can be complex.

Knowledge of construction materials and their assembly is only part of the skill required to successfully analyze failures and resolve conflict disputes.  Our engineers understand the entire construction process, including materials, installation techniques, project planning, schedules, and contractual obligations.  We use our expertise to analyze weather-related damage, structural failures, deficient workmanship claims, and construction disputes.
