A majority of D’Huy Engineering, Inc.’s forensic work involves investigating and resolving problems associated with building structures. Proper documentation of existing conditions combined with the understanding of how various structures and individual structural components perform are critical in determining the nature and cause of building problems as well as developing appropriate and cost effective solutions. DEI combines uniquely trained experts, decades of forensic engineering experience and state of the art technology to provide a detailed, innovative and common sense approach to building structure investigation and retrofit design.
Our investigations have included issues associated with building movement and cracking, vibrations, settlement, structural stability and other building problems. In addition, we recognize that these types of projects are undertaken on buildings that typically must remain in use. It is always our goal to work with the owner to ensure that our investigations and retrofit solutions can be effectively accomplished while limiting, to the greatest extent possible, inconveniences to ongoing operations.
