Forensic Engineering

IIW’s expertise in Forensic Engineering is built on many years of design experience. This includes hands-on investigation of building collapses, construction defects, design errors, expansive soils, floods, hail, plumbing leaks, tornados, vehicular impacts, veneer/cladding failures, water intrusion, and windstorms/damage to building envelopes.

We are problem solvers—we perform field examinations, listen to clients and owners, collect data, study the evidence, form hypotheses, and deliver clear conclusions for our clients to determine the best solution to the problem. Our mission is to discover cause of failure and educate our clients and peers on our findings.
