By combining strong educational background with extensive practical experience and field knowledge, SEE provides answers and solutions to problems in construction technology by emphasizing:

  1. Why did it fail?

  2. Is it safe?

  3. Are these cracks serious?

  4. How can it be kept watertight?

  5. Can it be repaired?

  6. What is the most appropriate and cost effective repair option?

Structure Evaluation Engineers, Inc. provides comprehensive engineering and specialized consulting services in structural condition assessment, building material evaluation, and repair design. Our expertise encompasses a wide range of performance issues including; waterproofing, structural adequacy, durability, and energy efficiency. Our staff members offer a strong record of accomplishment in their areas of expertise. Each engineer works in several of these areas, ensuring a constant exchange of knowledge and innovative approaches to problem solving.



1. Evaluation and Remediation

Problems in construction science, such as deterioration, leakage, physical distress, and material damage, resulting from a wide variety of causes. We believe that a cause-and-effect relationship must be established between the performance problems and defects before the structure can be repaired effectively and efficiently. Our evaluation program, tailored to the specific requirements of each project may include the following.

  • Review of construction documents and other related information

  • Field assessment, testing, and structural analysis

  • Laboratory testing of samples from the structure

  • Identification of deficiencies in design, workmanship, materials, and/or maintenance, and their contribution to the problems

  • Precise written reports of findings, analysis, and conclusion

  • Cost analysis for recommended remedial program

2. Design

  • Structural analysis and detailing

  • Conceptual and final detailed designs

  • Preparation of contract documents, technical specifications, and drawings

  • Review of designs by others

  • Cost estimating

3. Contract Administration and Field
    Engineering Services

  • Assistance in obtaining and evaluating bids.

  • Submittal and shop drawing review.

  • Construction observations and monitoring.

  • Construction trouble shooting.

  • Contract administration and close-out services.
