Distress Property Evaluations and Forensic Engineering
Distressed property investigations of damage, deterioration, or collapse of a structure or its foundations; evaluation of possible causes of settlements and/or heave or other forms of ground deformations, such as expansive soils, collapsible soils, or corrosive or erodible soils, sinkholes, creep potential, moisture intrusion or drying; and damage induced by earthquakes and other natural causes.
- Distress Property Evaluation;
- Landslide, Mudslide Assessments and Mitigation;
- Property/site evaluations;
- Detailed inspection and photographic documentation of distress;
- Building floors level (“manometer”) survey;
- Baseline and periodic monitoring of distress;
- As-built plans and site data records research;
- Assessment of potential causes or geotechnical conditions possibly affecting distressed property;
- Supplementary investigation and testing, if needed.
- Alternative repair concepts, where warranted.
