Failure Analysis

Failures in the built environment come in many shapes and sizes — some are sudden and catastrophic while others occur slowly over time. Following a failure, Walter P Moore helps you determine causes and the impact on existing operations. Whether the failure involved a structural collapse or coating membrane failure, we design appropriate repair and rehabilitation details to address the existing distress and prevent additional damage. Our expertise in materials, analysis, design, building science, and structural performance allows us to evaluate a broad range of failures. Our analysis includes on-site observation, field and laboratory testing, as well as in-depth engineering analysis. We have a visual communication team that develops digital representation of our failure analysis results by using 2-D sketches, 3-D models, animations, and video.
