Building Failure Investigations
With our vast engineering experience, we are able to carry out building failure investigations. We can act on behalf of either the private clients or insurer to assess the site conditions, carry out testing of materials, take undisturbed samples for laboratory analysis and work out the reason and cause of failure.
Once the reason and cause have been identified then we are able to prepare a special foundation design, whether this be an underpinning scheme, piled slab or raft. We will produce a design, drawings and calculations to support this for Local Authority.
Our engineering consultants are able to work closely with architects or independently, to design your building's superstructure for its intended use. Be this a warehouse that requires a braced portal frame where floor space is of a premium, a school with reinforced brick panels and isolated steel framing with load bearing masonry, or a residential building of standard construction.
