Consulting Structural Engineering

We offer expert consulting services in the field of structural strengthening & rehabilitation of concrete and masonry infrastructure, utilizing state-of-the-art, high-strength, lightweight, carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites (CFRP). Dr. Kaiser's research on CFRP for use in strengthening reinforced concrete was instrumental in developing this amazing new technology for implementation into the model building code.

Additionally, we offer consulting services for stabilization & repair of existing, unstable foundation systems using underpinning piles, which include structural steel pipe piles and micropiles. Both pile types can also be used in new construction, where challenging soil profiles and/or field conditions exist.
