Building fires are unfortunately common and cause significant damage to structural systems including wood, concrete, and steel framing. The effects of fire damage may not be obvious to the untrained eye, but exposure to elevated temperatures can significantly alter the properties of structural steel and concrete, reducing strength and altering structural behavior. Walter P Moore rapidly evaluates the nature and extent of fire damage and determines the need for shoring, strengthening, and additional testing. Our extensive experience evaluating fire-damaged structures, in-house testing capabilities, and existing relationships with materials testing laboratories allow us to quickly design repair alternatives to restore structural capacity. Whether your structure is a parking garage, office, or industrial facility, we evaluate the structural implications of your fire event to help you get back to normal operations.
