Building Failure Analysis & Reporting

Our team provides the best in building envelope evaluations. Through the use of controlled and documented analytical and investigative techniques, we are able to identify, collect, and examine, building system failures and preserve the physical evidence – all while photo documenting the project. Our 40+ years of experience in conducting building envelope analyses allows us to get our clients to a resolution while offering comfort and support.

Building Failure Analysis & Reporting

Structural failure or building envelope failure can be caused by poor workmanship, design defects, product defects or products reaching the end of their life cycle. These failures can result in water intrusion, mold, structural damage, and other serious problems. The failures are often complicated and difficult to assess.

FCC has the knowledge and experience to assess the cause of a building’s failure condition. Forensic Construction Consulting works with subject matter experts, such as the following:

  • Electrical Experts
  • Mechanical Experts
  • Structural Experts
  • Particulate & Mold Laboratories
  • … and more.

In addition, when it comes to Building Failure Analysis & Reporting we coordinate and work with general contractors, contractors, insurance companies, and attorneys.

Our Building Failure Analysis Process

Each step involved with our building failure analysis process allows us to provide the best service possible to our clientele.  Our typical process involves the following:

  • Initial interview with you to define preliminary issues.
  • Document As-Is Conditions
  • Review Construction Documentation
  • Establish a Timeline of the Building Process
  • Limited initial sample testing – We take apart and analyze the damaged area layer by layer.
  • We photograph and document our findings, in detail, to preserve a compelling record of the original conditions surrounding a defect.
  • While disassembling the area in question, we watch for any design or construction defects that may be part of the underlying cause.
  • We bag and tag the representative pieces to preserve the material evidence for later reference.
