Evaluation & Assessment Services

Through the use of our manometer surveys, invasive inspections, and photographic surveys, we can document distress, discuss probable causes and assign probabilities of risk for further future distress from the geotechnical and structural vantage points.

From one-time inspections to periodic or continued monitoring, we are able to provide the necessary input to pinpoint the problems.

Our services, as independent or third-party review consultants, assist clients in identifying causes of distress in resolving issues without litigation. Our capabilities for forensic studies and expert witness testimony center around technical evaluations, as well as practical, clear, and concise descriptions that can be understood by all parties involved.

We strive to avoid clouding the issue by using layman terminology and frequently, through this approach, are able to minimize intensive and costly on-going disputes.
