Forensic engineering involves the investigation and determination of failures and defects of equipment and structures to understand why they occur and provide critical feedback to the client.
Structural and Civil Engineering matters..
In the case of major defects, partial failure or total structural collapse; knowledge of the proximate cause and contributing factors combined with appropriate redesign can prevent future catastrophic failures or indeed improve any situation where a lack of performance occurs – knowledge of the cause provides a sound basis for reporting and recommending accurate and efficient solutions.
ICPS Australia’s Engineering team are appointed usually to investigate and resolve day-to-day structural defects and failures, and report and highlight the issues uncovered and where required, provide remediable solutions.
Forensic investigations in buildings..
Our structural and Civil engineers and Building Consultants regularly team-up to investigate and understand causation in general building related issues such as ground water seepage, mould, differential movement, defective building construction and design..
