We are highly respected for our forensic engineering work. We regularly conduct investigations for the insurance industry and building owners to determine the cause and scope of damage, method of repair,  and provide expert testimony.  

We are routinely asked to evaluate damage from natural and manmade disasters.  We have evaluated damage from hurricanes, tornadoes, snowstorms, hailstorms, microbursts, lightning, erosion, floods,  and earthquakes.  We  evaluate building damage from fires, vehicle impacts, explosions, ground vibration events, improper construction and design,  and deterioration of many types.

We have investigated damage to both large and small buildings, from single-family homes to large commercial structures. Large structure investigations have included the L'Ambiance Plaza, the Hartford Coliseum Roof Failure, The Big Dig Tunnel Ceiling Failure, a high-rise building damaged by the World Trade Center attack, and multiple large warehouse, office, hotel, and manufacturing facilities.
