ESi's Houston area operation is a multidisciplinary regional office. The composition of the majority of Houston's project assignments range from major property insurance (e.g., large loss) – in cases involving fires, explosions, boiler and machinery, construction, structural, processing plants, and industrial safety – to small, medium, large, and very large litigation support cases.
Houston's campus is situated on over 15 acres in unincorporated Montgomery County, Texas. These facilities incorporate offices, conference, examination, storage, and testing activities in one location and are ideally suited for handling the examination, testing, and storage of large evidentiary items (vehicles, recreational vessels, piping, engines, equipment, etc.).
These facilities offer capabilities for general disassembly, stereo microscopy, electronic instrumentation, hydrostatic testing, welding fabrication, in-situ fire testing, full size fire testing, pressure testing, explosion testing, construction assembly testing, ballistics testing, and industrial accident recreation. Tests and set-ups to prove the validity of individual models and theories can be built to accommodate the necessities of specific clients.
Houston's talented staff offers expertise in the following practice areas:
To facilitate the analysis of petrochemical related incidents, certain staff members are 40-hour HAZWOPPER certified and TWIC certified.
We are active in cases including but not limited to:
ESi launches a new Fuel Gas Odorant Composition Analysis program performed by a full-service chemistry lab.
