FORENSICS

Excellence in forensic engineering, large loss assessments and expert witness work.

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 investigations, 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. The integration minimizes management and coordination efforts 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, each 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
