Construction Defect Analysis
Why is there mold? Why is the wall bowed? Why is the roof sagging? Why did the masonry fall off the face of the building? Is this structure safe? Why did it fall down? Why is this site flooding? How bad is the damage? Does it comply with the applicable building code? An experienced Wolf engineer can answer these questions for you.
Access to Buildings and Facilities / Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Safe access to buildings and facilities is not only important, it is the law. Improper construction or maintenance of walking surfaces, ramps, curb ramps, stairs, parking spaces, passenger loading zones, and other accessible features, create potential hazards for the general public as well as for those with disabilities. A Wolf engineer can evaluate your incident site to determine if design, construction, and maintenance procedures comply with applicable regulations, codes, and local ordinances.
Construction Claims / Dispute Resolution
Project delays, cost overruns, disagreements on change order pricing, disagreements on the scope of work included in a contract, poor workmanship, untimely decisions, poorly worded contract documents, and inadequate or incorrect design, are only a few of the factors that can result in claims and counter-claims between Owners, Architect/Engineers, Construction Managers, and Contractors. Wolf has engineers and construction specialists with many years of construction and construction management experience, knowledgeable in all aspects of construction administration, who can help evaluate complex construction issues and arrive at equitable solutions.
