Building Diagnostics / Forensic Investigations

Construction Consulting

Alpha Check has a special expertise in conducting forensic investigations on existing buildings for the purpose of diagnosing problems.

Our knowledge of engineering, building materials, and building science is in combination with our construction experience, innovative approaches, and standardized diagnostic testing invaluable in assessing the cause of performance problems and failures in various construction components.

Examples of problems evaluated are

– moisture migration
– unusual stains
– interior building leakage
– material deterioration
– condensation
– improperly operable or failure of building systems or components
– structural failure
– analysis of construction/renovations performed before final payment is made
– documentation of improper construction methods and┬ámaterials for possible use
in court proceedings or mediation.
