WFCG engineers are experienced in a wide variety of
structural and civil engineering arenas that allow us to understand,
quantify and explain in plain English what the cause and/or mechanism of
failure is to a structure. By understanding the engineering principals
utilized in the initial design of a structure, we are able to "reverse
engineer" the damaged conditions and provide an economically viable
solution to the problem to restore the integrity of the asset.
Experience has shown us that damage to a building or facility can be caused
by a diverse number of sources including earthquake, hurricane, tornado,
heavy rainfall events, foreign debris impact, vehicle damage, inadequate
building design, building alterations and modifications, improper foundation
design, ground vibrations, nearby construction activities, inadequate site
preparation and numerous geologic issues, just to name a few.
We have the education, working knowledge and vast experience to understand
these complex issues and to provide the right solution to the problem. WFCG's
team of engineers routinely respond to a variety of disasters to provide site
investigations, damage documentation, consultation, technical report
preparation and expert witness services.
