Resilience in the wake of natural and man-made disasters depends on the timely response of technical experts who can evaluate damage and provide practical recommendations for repair and recovery. CTLGroup engineers and architects have a history of providing expert evaluations of buildings and structures after catastrophic events including hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, and explosions.
Our team of experts is trained to triage, assess damage, investigate causation, and evaluate reparability. We have assisted commercial and residential property owners, insurers, and adjusters throughout the United States and around the world, including recent work associated with Atlantic hurricanes, severe weather outbreaks in the Midwest, and industrial site explosions. CTLGroup’s catastrophe response teams will deploy to affected sites to perform hands-on inspections and document physical evidence appropriate to characterize the nature and extent of damage, and determine the cause and reparability. Our conclusions and recommendations are always based on direct evidence and sound engineering principles.
