Forensic Investigations

Forensic Investigation SamplesSJB/Empire often examines the soundness of an existing building’s structural components for rehabilitation, renovation or redevelopment. We are also called on to investigate situations where site inspections were not performed as required during construction or where a component of the site construction has failed or is in need of repair. Our engineers inspect the area, diagnose any problems, and assist in developing solutions for reuse, or corrective and preventative measures for repair.
