Our new facility has a large warehouse well suited for the secure storage and effective examination of all types of evidence.
Our facility has an examination room and warehouse that are available to host evidence examinations. Facility has conditioned space, equipment, power, large bay doors, and a loading dock for access.
In litigation, our professionals serve as witnesses to provide authoritative, expert testimony following investigations or case study.
Fire & Explosions
Investigation into factors that contributed to a fire or explosion in losses from small structures to large, complex multi-million dollar scenes.
Fire suppression system failures can encompass a wide array of reasons and damages. We get to the root of the matter in restaurants, residential, commercial, and industrial structures.
Structural damage can occur to building foundations from sensitive soils, shrinking and swelling of foundation soils, poorly placed structural fill, effects of groundwater, and out-of-specification construction. Various investigative techniques can be used to identify and determine the cause of a foundation failure.
We investigate scenes where appliances and equipment fueled by liquid or gaseous fuels failed.
HVAC & Refrigeration
Our engineers identify causes for equipment failure in residential, restaurant, offices, and refrigerated storage.
Our experienced mechanical engineer will identify mechanical equipment and systems failures, both premature arising from manufacturing or installation defects or from other causes.
Moisture infiltration, whether slow or sudden, needs immediate resolution. Our team is skilled in evaluating the source quickly.
Piping & Plumbing
Pipe failure leads to water damage, fire, explosion, and many other disruptions of business and life. We provide timely and thorough analysis of the failure.
Damage can occur to structures from several external factors, such as vehicle impacts, tree impacts, long-term moisture damage, wood boring insects, rodent activity, Out of spec construction, and acts of nature. Deciphering the cause of damage takes good-quality expertise and knowledge.
Retaining walls are often incorporated into building components or utilized to support soils surrounding properties and structures. Failures can occur due to an overloading of the wall capacity by earth pressures, poor wall construction, vehicle impacts, hydraulice loading, vegetation, and chemical attack.
Sinkhole & Settlement
Movement of the earth due to karst activity, such as sinkholes and soil consolidation, will damage a structure. Numerous investigative techniques can be utilized, such as subsurface drilling, soil laboratory testing, soil resistivity, seismic refraction, and ground penetrating radar (GPR) to better define the cause of damage.
Investigation of damage resulting from destructive forces of nature – lightning, wind, and hail.
Our examination and testing facility has the space and equipment to conduct a large variety of testing for appliances and equipment.
Non-destructive x-rays of appliances and components are available at our facility with mobile x-ray equipment. This enables same day examination of components and analysis of digital x-ray images
