Forensic Architecture and Construction Defects

Our multi-disciplined firm offers various services relating to problems with existing construction. We specialize in exploration of material and assembly failures and moisture intrusion issues. We firmly believe in the importance of immediate action to document existing conditions and using the information as a baseline to track and document continued degradation.

On projects of a larger size or with specialized needs we will partner with a larger architectural forensics firm, law firms and/or specialized engineers and experts to provide the best services possible. Working as a team we will help our clients solve their problems.
