Investigative Inspection/Analysis

Have you ever seen the video of the dad who slips, grabs on to the side of the above-ground pool, and ends up tearing the wall down allowing all the water and his kids to wash out into his yard? It always makes people chuckle.

Yet, building collapses and other structural failures are no laughing matter.  We have years of experience assisting companies in a wide variety of litigation situations, and are one of the nation's leading experts in this field.  Our core areas of expertise include:

  • Component bracing
  • Structural failure analysis
  • Construction defect analysis
  • Building performance analysis (e.g. cracks, deformation, etc.)
  • Design and construction project responsibilities
  • Code research and compliance

To provide an even more robust legal defense, we have also developed a forensic engineering partnership the law firm Pagel, Davis & Hill, P.C.

There’s gold in them there hills.

The load path and performance data that can be collected from in-situ testing is invaluable, and cannot be replicated through standard single-element testing.


You never know what valuable stuff you’ll find in an attic.

We customize each test environment to gather the data you need to make an informed decision about your product development.
