Our Forensic Engineering experts use advanced science and technology, including custom-built analysis tools, ensuring you get a complete and accurate failure investigation or assessment of structural performance. We love getting stuck into the most challenging forensic problems, bringing decades of experience analysing structures to the table. In fact, Holmes Consulting is at the forefront of setting the forensic investigation standards in NZ, working with bodies like MBIE to devise industry standards that will define the way Forensic Engineering will be delivered in the future.
We’ve established our great reputation for Forensic Engineering on the strength of an unwavering commitment to get to the bottom of structural problems few have the skills to solve. We’ve worked on heritage structures, new buildings, and hundreds of earthquake damaged or vulnerable buildings in need of urgent attention. Our clients include building owners, developers, architects, contractors, institutional investors, lawyers, insurers and local and central government organisations – and anyone looking for an unbiased, detailed investigation that will uncover the answers accurately and efficiently. Where testing’s required, we can draw on the brilliant Holmes Solutions team, market leaders in testing and investigative engineering.
Our custom built analysis tools lead the way in performance evaluation, breaking new ground. Where the right technology doesn’t exist, we build it ourselves – that’s why we can offer a level of forensic engineering few in the world can claim to match.
