System Damage Cause & Effect Analysis

Malfunctions or failures in electrical distribution, gas supply, plumbing, fire suppression, and fire alarm systems can result in the tragic loss of life and substantial property damage.  Frequently, the malfunctions contribute to the initiation of a fire or explosion, injuries during equipment operation, or structural flooding.  Our engineers have designed, evaluated, and inspected these systems and are ready to provide a rapid response when an incident occurs.

Following the identification of causal factors, we are available to assess the scope of damage to property and equipment, recommend and oversee repairs, and ensure your restoration costs are reasonable and fair.  Additionally, our engineers can evaluate system and equipment installations and determine if code compliance issues led to a fire, explosion, structural collapse, electrocution, or other tragedy.
