The design of engineered systems is a field of constant learning. Engineers use the laws of physical science to design a building’s systems and predict performance. In reality, many variables change between design and final construction, some known, some unknown. Over time, existing systems may fail, sometimes causing significant property damage, personal injury or even death.

Forensics engineering retraces the facts leading up to a failure, identifies the root cause and may provide solutions to prevent reoccurrence and/or improve performance.

In such cases, severe enough to go to legal litigation, our experienced engineers are available to provide expert witness testimony, to assist clients with fair and equitable settlements. Our areas of specialized expertise include:

  • Commercial and institutional facility HVAC, plumbing, fire protection and electrical systems design, operation and control
  • Petroleum fuel storage, transfer and dispensing systems
