Engineering Specialists, Inc. evaluates all types of structures for a variety of structural concerns, issues and damage. Our experts will determine the cause, whether it is an ongoing problem and offer recommendations for corrective action. We evaluate any structural issue, concern, or collapse.
Types of structures that we evaluate:

- Bridges and roadways
- Tilt-up wall panels

Accurately evaluating the full extent of damage can be difficult if you don’t know where to look. Damage may be caused by something hidden, and damage to one location may cause unexpected issues elsewhere. Our extensive experience in forensic evaluation of property damage combined with our expertise in construction means we have the qualifications to figure out what is happening, why it is happening and the full damage implications to all parts of a property.
The full extent of damage can include:
- Hidden damage to covered structural elements
- Damage in another location from movement in another
- Issues with concealed electrical and mechanical equipment
- Reduction of usable life of a structural component
- Water penetration through cracks
- Aesthetic issues from misalignment or damage
Not all structural concerns mean the structure is unusable. We have over 25 years of experience figuring out the most cost-effective methods or repairing, renovating and preserving structures. We have experience in design, construction, and code compliance giving us a breadth of knowledge to find you the most cost-effective solutions. We have fixed complicated issues at critical facilities such as large manufacturing businesses and water treatment plants that have no margin of error for downtime.
You can be sure that our extensive knowledge of construction and structural issues means we can figure out your best options no matter how complex the structural issue you are facing may seem.
