Insurance Investigations

Criterium-Jansen Engineers' expertise in building systems is often requested when clients need someone to determine the cause and origin of a failure, determine how best to remedy the problem, develop estimates and contract documents, manage the repair, and provide court testimony. We do not decide whether defects are covered by insurance but render an opinion as to what caused the problem and what can be done about it.

Typical defects relate to:

Site and Structure- e.g. subsidence, cracking, drainage problems, water penetration

Mechanical Systems- e.g. comfort concerns, indoor air quality, energy costs

Electrical Systems- e.g. capacity, safety


Our initial report documents and findings will provide opinions as to the suspected cause. Additional investigation may be required, or a design repair may need to be produced. Litigation support services are also available.
