Civil Engineering

Our civil engineering experts provide engineering services for investigating and determining the origin and cause of failures involving civil works, structures, roofs, walls, foundations, and manufacturing operations.   We look at how the intricate connected parts worked to form the system, and which part of that system failed.  Civil engineering and structural engineering issues may result in the loss of property, production, or injury and/or death.   Our expertise covers a broad range of investigations, from the failure of residential attic ventilation to the collapse or detonation of large structures.

Expert Civil Engineering and Structural Engineering Solutions

Our engineering experience includes:

  • Building structure and foundation failure during or after construction as a result of wind, tornado, hurricane, long term deterioration, overloading, or inadequate design and construction techniques.
  • Civil works collapse or failure during or after construction due to overloading, foundation failure, and/or the failure to operate within government regulations and standards.
  • Roadway pavement and sewer/storm system failure due to flooding, design, construction, and long-term deterioration.
  • Collapse of cranes due to weather conditions, and failure to follow safety protocols. 
  • Highway bridge damage and failure due to long term deterioration and/or impact of noncomplying roadway haulers. 
  • Manufacturing operations such as stamping, foundry, resource recovery, asphalt production, and failure to operate within government regulations and standards.
  • Blast and concussion damage due to mining, unplanned explosions above and below grade, and nearby construction activity.
  • The disruption of manufacturing and productions facilities due to the failure to operate within Standard Operating Procedures. 
  • Building, roof, and wall system failure as a result of wind, tornado, hurricane, long term deterioration, overloading, or inadequate design and construction.
  • Residential attic and basement foundation failure due to design and long-term deterioration.
