Florida Geotechnical Engineering specializes in residential and commercial forensic structural engineering services spanning from identification and evaluation of construction defects, to cause and origin assessments as well as roof damage investigations.
Our engineers leverage their hands-on understanding of all phases of building design and construction and forensic expertise. Our team provides the professional skill sets necessary to effectively analyze damage scenarios from initial construction to critical post-damage repair solutions.
Through the use of visual inspections and limited destructive and non destructive testing, FGE engineers are able to diagnose and determine the extent of any structural issue. With FGE you not only get a professional structural inspection but also the confidence of knowing that the investigation is performed by an engineering company that specializes in multiple engineering disciplines including geotechnical, structural and environmental engineering services.
