The vast majority of existing structures fall within a residential occupancy classification. These structures include smaller, one and two family dwellings, all the way to high-rise apartment or condominium buildings. Because residential structures are so numerous, building-related failures tend to occur most often in residential structures. These can include structural failures with a variety of causes (fire, storm, deterioration, and overloading) or building envelope issues.
ESi has worked on thousands of projects related to residential structures and as a result, the group is very well versed in typical problems, applicable code requirements, efficient repair details, and overall damage assessment.
