MEP Forensics And Independent Analytics

MEP services and expert analysis and solutions for even the most complex of systems issues

Forensics is the expert investigation and analysis into the cause of any failures or defects that may arise during a project’s operational phase.

With building developments becoming ever more complicated and intricate, the chance of MEP system problems and structural defects or failures arising has become increasingly common. Our independent MEP forensic specialists have nearly 20 years of expertise in analyzing and identifying issues within a wide range of MEP functions and processes, whether your structure is experiencing a minor issue or is the subject of a more major systems failure.

As your trusted impartial advisor, we work meticulously and in the strictest confidence to get to the heart of a problem, to help return your building to its optimum operating levels. Alpin has worked with several clients, from asset owners and managers, to lawyers and insurance companies, to provide MEP expert witness and reports for even the most complex of concerns or claims related disputes.

Why Is MEP Forensics So Important?

Getting to the root of a MEP problem often requires specialist discovery and analysis from an expert team independent of a building’s design, development or operational teams. Whether it is an issue related to occupancy health and comfort, or a system failure or design fault such as moisture, mold or air quality, our forensic advisors can provide a high level of impartial analysis and advice. Our team’s MEP services, expert findings and recommendations not only help to provide solutions for building managers and owners, their highly accurate and detailed reports can serve as powerful tools in litigation support.
