Our 10,000 square foot state of the art laboratory and an industry-leading team of Forensic Engineering Experts are able to serve a wide range of industries and applications.

We have consulted on hundreds of critical, high-profile projects including the Alaskan Pipeline, the Golden Gate Bridge, the BP Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the Milwaukee Brewers Stadium roof collapse, the Lan Chile airplane fire at the Miami airport, and the San Bruno pipeline explosion, among many others.

In each instance, our investigative approach as problem solvers covers every angle. We work to understand what happened, what the root causes were, and the preventative solutions, as well as communicating our findings to our clients in a comprehensive and meaningful way.
