Legal engineering and expertise

EMS does much more than just finding the source of the problem, it finds the solution!

EMS has played a leading role in legal engineering and technical investigation for several years. Whether it is for high-level expert appraisals concerning the determination of the cause of collapse, construction defects, water infiltration, sewer back-ups, or the premature deterioration of mechanical equipment, our engineers are capable of establishing the cause, documenting it, and determining the most advantageous rehabilitation scenarios. Armed with its vast expertise, EMS Ingénierie is capable of meeting any needs from the first visual observations until the delivery of a completely rehabilitated structure.
