Forensic

When investigating failures in construction and during service our engineers apply their knowledge in design and construction to reveal the possible causes of failures. Where necessary, our engineers conducted experiments on similar elements as those that have failed in order to retrace the modes of failure and to support our analytical findings. Orient Research had also been commissioned by clients to examine the failure reports presented to our clients in the defence of claims from third parties.

Our engineers have participated with international experts in the investigations of failed buildings following destructive natural disasters such as earthquakes. Their findings have been shared with the engineering community to improve the global understanding of failures from each disaster.

Orient Research can offer the following services and more:
○ Determination of the causes of failures
○ Prescribing investigation and tests to retrace failures
○ Mitigation for the failures
○ Reconstruction and demolition strategy
○ Expert witness and defence for lawsuits
