When your buildings succumb to fire, windstorms, explosions or collapses, the speed of recovery depends on getting a fast, accurate assessment of the damage done and the cost of repairs.
With a network of experienced and trained construction consultants, we offer rapid responses to your most urgent challenges. As a single-source consultant, we provide a precise, objective analysis of damages and costs incurred, including:
Products may cause injuries or not do what they are supposed to do. We have provided expert opinions for a vast array of products. Can openers, space heaters, frying pans, modular fireplaces, boilers, remote modular weather stations, cell phone antennae, and heavy equipment are a few of the products investigated by CCA.
Materials also may not behave as expected or as specified. Our experts have testified about the corrosion of metals, the performance of coatings, and the strength and behavior of concrete.
When technology fails, the answer is rarely simple.
Figuring out what happened and why, how to fix it, and how much it will cost usually requires experts from several disciplines.
That’s why our technology investigation services are staffed by a multidisciplinary team. Our consultants are qualified to investigate all manner of electro-mechanical problems, including engine failures, computer hardware and software errors, product liability, vehicle failures, and much more. And we maintain an ongoing relationship with a leading metallurgy and materials testing facility that allows us to diagnose some of the most complicated issues around technical failure.
