Forensic Engineering

JBCI has been providing forensic investigations, failure analysis, and prevention recommendations for over 30 years. Our approach is to ensure we provide not only the technical expertise and support required, but also the ability to present and communicate technical and complex information in a clear and definitive style.

What caused a structural failure? Is an assignment of responsibility required? Is there a public safety concern? Does the structure require immediate stabilization? These are difficult questions that require an immediate response. We pride ourselves on making sound decisions on the spot.
