Structural Forensics Investigation

Failures within the built environment can occur any time for a variety of reasons. Our extensive experience and expertise in hands-on investigation, analysis and structural design - for all material types and vintages - enable us to effectively conduct scope-of-damage and cause-and-origin investigations.

At Lee Consultants, we thrive on big challenges. We investigate engineering problems and provide evidence-based solutions founded on rigorous science and physics. Our methods and resources enable us to assist clients with remedial actions that quickly return damaged structures to service.

Structural Failure Analysis

From construction accidents, operating mishaps or overloads to natural disasters or human-induced events – when a structure or installation is collapsed or crippled, we conduct scope-of-damage and
cause-and-origin investigations; and provide recommendations and repair programs to reduce post-accident hazards.
