Comprised of builders, architects, engineers and subcontractors, we perform all aspects of a reconstruction project. Through careful planning, consistent communication and in-house control of production, we are consistently able to meet scheduling requirements and overcome challenging site logistics. And by working closely with building owners and homeowner representatives, we minimize the impact on occupants.

Destructive Testing

Destructive Testing describes the process of intentional investigation necessary to understand:

  • How various building components are assembled, and
  • The potential and extent of underlying substrate damage that may have compromised building integrity

Our personnel works in conjunction with forensic investigators to strategically dissemble building components in a very efficient and focused manner in order to gain an understanding of failure mechanisms, to quantify the likely extent of damage and decay, and to develop an appropriate methodology for cost-effective repairs.

Destructive testing teams represent some of our most talented personnel. Testing must be conducted efficiently with a particular emphasis on very selective and careful demolition and rapid restoration of finishes in both interior and exterior areas. What is paramount is that the team thoroughly understands the requirements for the temporary protection of finishes that are not to be disturbed and ensure that they clean up upon work completion.

Our goal is that affected occupants be unable to detect that our crews were ever on site — and we consistently satisfy this goal.

Our destructive testing team also assists Richard Avelar & Associates in the development of assembly mock-ups and product testing which is performed at our shop facility in Concord, CA.
