Excellence in Forensic Engineering, Large Loss Assessment and Expert Witness Work

TULLOCH Geotechnical SOQ - May 2020 (002) 9_Page_1_Image_0001

Our team members are experienced in conducting multidisciplinary forensic investigations and peer review work related to complex insurance and legal claims, spanning across a wide range of residential, commercial and industrial business sectors within Canada and internationally. We have extensive experience in conducting causation investigation, evaluation of standard of care/practice, loss mitigation and remediation.

We are one of only a few companies in Canada offering integrated engineering, instrumentation and monitoring, LiDAR mapping, geomatics and GIS services under one roof.  This integration minimizes management and coordination effort and improves data flow to project teams. It also pays big dividends for the investigation and documentation of large, catastrophic losses such as damage arising from earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, landslides or man-made disasters.

We specialize in the following:

    • Geotechnical and structural assessment of foundations, embankments, slopes, earth retaining systems, tunnels, dams, dewatering and drainage, pavements, sinkholes, construction vibration
    • Building, plant, and bridge superstructures (concrete, structural steel, wood/heavy timber)
    • Post-fire, post-impact and post-collapse structural damage assessments (material condition, alignment, life safety & stability)
    • Emergency shoring & mitigation
    • Cost analysis for repair and reconstruction
    • Multi-disciplinary design for repair, rehabilitation or reconstruction options
    • Catastrophic loss investigation combining remote sensing, field assessments, GIS capabilities
