Higgins & Associates engineers routinely investigate complex structural issues on behalf of our clients. Our engineers have a wealth of experience in evaluating construction deficiencies, damage and defects as they relate to structural components of a building. We can assist with determination of cause, the extent and cost of any damage and design and quality assurance (QA) of any required repairs.

We work with insurance carriers, attorneys and building owners to evaluate structural issues and help them return their asset to a good state of repair. Our expertise spans evaluation and assessment of all structural elements including framing, fenestrations (windows), waterproofing systems, insulation and the proper construction techniques that should be employed using installation.
