Forensic Engineering

Forensic Engineering

CTLGroup has investigated some aspect of nearly every major catastrophic collapse and failure that has occurred in recent years. Most failures, however, do not make headlines but instead are simply a loss of function, serviceability or value. At the conclusion of a CTLGroup investigation, our clients have an accurate assessment of damage and an expert analysis of causation that can be used for the purposes of remediation, repair, claims adjustment or litigation.
 
CTLGroup provides its clients with a single source for technical consulting services that combines expertise from several areas including:

  • Structural engineering investigations and diagnostics
  • Construction materials evaluation and testing
  • Structural component evaluation and testing
