Multidisciplinary Remediation – 30 Forensic Engineering

Our multidisciplinary remediation service brings to bear the best that 30 Forensic Engineering has to offer from the assessment phase of a property loss through to emergency stabilization and restoration. Our project teams are custom-built across our business lines to provide a solution that addresses the needs of a particular file—one size does not fit all. We use a talent-to-task approach throughout the lifecycle of a file to deliver an efficient and fulsome response to a loss event.

Our teams are comprised of experts from our environmental, civil-structural, geotechnical, building code, fire, electrical and mechanical disciplines, coordinated internally to deliver the necessary response commensurate with the complexity of the situation, be it a small flood or a large-scale CAT loss.
