Construction Defects

ESi’s construction defects experts investigate defects related to design, construction and materials, failures in routine maintenance, and on-site safety issues.

We work to identify the origins and causes of alleged defects, determine what parties are responsible for them, develop repair recommendations, and oversee implementation of our recommendations to restore structures to their intended state.

When ESi investigates the factors contributing to construction defects, we utilize architects, engineers, and other specialists to assemble an in-house team of experts whose knowledge and experience will lead to the most thorough understanding of the failures in question.
