Do you need assistance determining the cause and/or responsibility for a failure in a structural or non-structural building assembly?
If you have a building performance or structural issue, we have likely seen it before. WDP’s litigation experience has frequently involved determining what caused a particular failure, and ultimately the responsible parties. This experience includes failures ranging from collapse of structures during construction to collapse of historic structures, from major structural defects in the form of cracking of concrete or masonry, to aesthetic problems due to staining, chippage, or blemishes of finishes. We employ engineering mechanics analyses and laboratory and field testing techniques coupled with our prior experiences to guide us to a determination of causes for issues.
