building problems demonstrates expertise.
When faced with
building problems, owners can benefit from our combination of practical
knowledge and engineering expertise. A few of the problems we have
diagnosed and solved (after owners had spent large sums on consultants
who got it wrong):
- A major automotive manifacturer called us to diagnose
the cause of movement in factory slabs. Our analysis changed the
design of slabs on all future projects.
- One bearing wall of a major paper mill was disintegrating. We
diagnosed the cause, recommended a solution and determined the
problem was not structural – yet. Before calling us, the
owner had, unfortunately, spent a great deal of money on a “solution”
that had only exacerbated the problem.
- A new school had persistent roof leaks. We traced
the leaks to the improper design of expansion joints.
- General Motors wanted quiet for engineers working
in an elevated office in a stamping plant. We devised a simple
structure to eliminate noise.
