New and old structures benefit from Forster Company, Inc. materials consulting and failure investigation services. Our engineers perform structural testing and materials assessments of building components to determine their condition as well as the cause and extent of any damage or failure. We determine the extent of damage to building materials from seismic events, the effects of aging on construction materials, environmental exposure, and misuse of materials. Testing is performed in accordance with industry codes and standards on reinforced concrete, structural steel, unreinforced masonry and wood materials. We give our clients the tools necessary to identify, rectify, and often prevent materials-related problems and avoid costly repairs and unsafe conditions.
