Failure Has Many Fathers
They are supposed to stay up, but sometimes buildings come down. Or at least part of them does.
The reasons structures fail can be as simple as a bad weld. Or as complex as a long-term fatigue brought on by thermal cycling.
Rarely, however, is there only one cause. A bad design may survive years until exposed to a strong wind or a heavy snowfall. And then wham.
To find cause with completeness requires assessing the roles played by design, materials, inspections, environmental factors, use or abuse, maintenance and still other factors.
Success Needs Only One Call
Successful defense, cost recovery, damage mitigation and loss prevention can all turn on one, possibly small, detail. A detail that could easily be overlooked.
To be sure that nothing is missed, it’s better to employ a forensic firm with a broad range of specialized competencies: Giffin Koerth.
