If a material, component, or structure fails, we work laboriously to find out why.
Who is responsible? Why did the failure occur? Was it a design flaw or deficiency? Was it due to poor construction or improper materials? Is the structure safe, salvageable or does it need to be levelled?
If you have a building performance or structural issue, let the professionals at Structure Engineers help you. Our litigation experience has frequently involved determining what caused a particular failure, which ultimately can help determine the responsible parties. We employ structural engineering analyses and field-testing techniques, which combine with our prior experiences to help us determine the causes of failures or problems.
Our Forensic Engineering professionals investigate materials and structures that fail or do not operate as intended, and our investigative and forensic engineering services are available to insurers, property managers, risk managers, builders, and homeowners.
Structure Engineers work closely with building owners, insurance companies, contractors, and attorneys to investigate such structures. We follow a rigorous forensic engineering approach to determine the cause or causes of failure.
Our analysis can focus on one of two approaches: to repair or improve the performance, or to assist a court in determining the facts of the failure.
