A testbed for innovative adaptive reuse techniques and technologies that may soon serve as a unique model for urban ecological restoration.


Building Inspections +

Early signs of deterioration are not always obvious to the untrained eye. As such, detailed visual, hands-on, and sometimes probe inspections by expert structural engineers are imperative. 

Whether a high-rise, residential complex, commercial building, or industrial facility, structures of all sizes should undergo periodic assessment to maintain their overall health and safety.

Our robust Pennsylvania engineering structural inspection and investigation services can identify deterioration to determine the structural well-being of a building and its individual components. Additionally, we perform root cause analysis and help provide short and long-term remediation, rehabilitation, and repair support.
