Forensic Engineering & Peer Review Services

Forensic Engineering & Peer Review Services

IFE is often requested to evaluate and assess structural damage related to geotechnical or geologic issues.  Such issues may result from:

  • Expansive soil
  • Collapsible soil
  • Settlement of fill soils
  • Moisture intrusion through slabs
  • Soil corrosion, including sulfate exposure
  • Pavement failures
  • Slope failures
  • Structural foundation failures
  • Excavation failures

We also provide peer review services for local municipalities.  Reports prepared by other consultants are reviewed for conformance with the current geotechnical engineering and geologic standards of practice and to verify that all pertinent geotechnical and geologic issues are addressed.

IFE principals are available to provide legal consulting and expert witness services, including:

  • Analysis and evaluation of construction claims
  • Expert witness testimony for construction defects litigation
