Structures & Civil Engineering

Residential Structures

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. ESi’s services related to residential structures entail all aspects, including assessment of existing structures, emergency stabilization of distressed structures, initial damage assessment, setting scope of repairs, and repair drawings, including structural, architectural, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) repairs. Because of ESi’s valuable and extensive experience in this field, we are able to provide a streamlined and economical approach to any project, while maintaining a high level of technical expertise.
