Expert Advice

We hire only the most experienced forensic structural engineers in the country to provide expert advice on all structural issues.
Our Engineers Are Senior Forensic Experts
All Over Victoria

At MFS Engineering our Engineers are Senior Forensic Experts and members of Engineers Australia with years of experience in the Australian building industry. Unlike design engineers, Forensic Structural engineers are trained specifically to identify and propose solutions for damaged buildings. In addition to knowing the ins and outs of the design engineering industry, forensic structural engineers are trained and experienced in the niche of forensic structural problems. While not every design engineer is a forensic engineer, every forensic engineer is also a design engineer.

Most people, however, have never heard of the term “forensic structural engineering.” This is concerning because of how desperately everyone from homeowners to loss adjusters require forensic structural engineering services. If a potential client is unaware of the role of a forensic structural engineer, they typically turn to design engineers to address the structural failure or cosmetic damages to their property. This is a big mistake. Design engineers often have minimal forensic structural engineering experience, which can lead to inaccurate diagnoses and unnecessary expenses that clients unknowingly pay for. Design engineers do not have the training, nor the experience, to conduct imperative aspects of a forensic investigation, such as a building inspection report, dilapidation survey or an Australian structural report. However, structural engineers at MFS Engineering do.

At MFS Engineering our Senior Forensic Engineers have developed their specific skill sets through years of hands-on experience in the forensic field. They are highly attentive, pay incredible attention to detail and can notice what may seem to a design engineer like minor wall/home cracks but may be in reality an indicative of severe structural failure. Only forensic structural engineers can provide true expert advice when it comes to structure and damage analysis.

MFS Engineering solutions are comprised of expert advice. Depending on the type or severity of the damage, a building inspection may reveal the need for a few words of advice, a short building inspection report or a full and comprehensive forensic investigation. Regardless of the level of damage, our goal is to provide our clients with the knowledge they need about their property to make informed decisions about its care.

When you work with a forensic engineer from MFS Engineering, they will explain forensic structural engineering for homeowners and investors so that you can fully understand every issue with your property. Give MFS Engineering a call today!
