Buildings and Structures

BC&E’s professional engineers, licensed in a number of states, have evaluated a wide range of problems and conditions with existing buildings and structures effected by foundation movements, fire, flooding, wind, construction accidents, changes of use, improper design and construction, and deterioration due to exposure to water, de-icing salts, alkali-reactive aggregates, and freeze-thaw cycles. For distressed and deteriorated concrete structures, some of these evaluations have included the use of ACI load testing to determine whether the existing condition of the deteriorated concrete structure was adequate. Many of these evaluations have also included designing the structural repairs, preparing drawings and specifications for the structural repair work, and observing the contractor’s repair work to determine whether the work appeared to be in general compliance with the drawings and specifications.
