Emergency Engineering

We have a long history of experience in emergency engineering services from fire, earthquake, flood and vehicular damage. We have been the first consultants on site after multiple catastrophic events to identify dangerous conditions, outline safety protocols and determine a plan for bringing the building back up to code and use. We know the Grays Harbor area, the local permitting agencies and many of the nearby stakeholders. Our specific experience in emergency engineering, construction engineering (temporary shoring and support), building shell inspection, structural inspections, structural design, and development of construction plans business.
