Primary inspection services include Reinforced Concrete, Reinforced Masonry, Structural Steel, Structural Wood and other incidentals associated with civil and structural design.

Providing traditional pre-purchase building inspections for potential homebuyers on used homes, new construction, and warranty-expiration inspections. Condominium and apartment inspections are also provided for the individuals, for apartment complex owners and homeowner associations. All inspectors are by professional engineers that are fully licensed and certified with the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).
Our inspection services associated with commercial structures are limited to structural assessments only. These are primarily associated with structural issues that are discovered through general inspection services, or required structural inspections that are associated with earthquake / seismic analysis requirements for either the requirements of the current International Building Code or ASCE 31-03, Seismic Evaluation of Existing Buildings.
Why is the structure behaving this way? What was the cause of the failure? These are just some of the questions asked when unique inspections are required to determine the source of a specific structural behavior. Our almost 30 years of experience has positioned us to provide forensic investigations to help you understand the source of your problem.
Providing inspection services as a survey for loss control for the insurance underwriter.
