Independent Technical Reviews of Design & Construction

Mechanical Engineering Specialties [ME]

Avoid potential design and construction flaws and proactively reduce risks

Exponent helps owners, developers, designers, and contractors overcome project challenges by providing high-level, multidisciplinary engineering and scientific expertise, including third-party reviews, and confirmatory analyses of engineering calculations.

How do you accurately and objectively assess complex technical challenges for design and construction projects?

Complex multidisciplinary construction projects present significant challenges to owners and developers, who often have to rely on the opinion of their designers and contractors to understand certain technical challenges. Exponent engineers and scientists assist owners and developers in meeting their project challenges by providing high-level engineering consultation, including peer reviews and confirmatory analyses of complex engineering calculations performed by others. With our extensive experience in failure analyses, Exponent is uniquely qualified to perform technical reviews of reports, site data, and analyses in order to proactively reduce risks, identify potential design and construction flaws, and present alternative solutions to concept and final designs. Our technical engineering and scientific expertise allows us to identify and document risks, establish effective mitigation strategies, and present technical bases for comparison of competing design alternatives.

Exponent helps clients solve the broad variety of challenges inherent in construction projects — before, during, and after construction. Our multidisciplinary team of civil and geotechnical engineers, geologists, architects, and construction consultants provides breakthrough, evidence-based insights for all phases and aspects of design and construction. We conduct comprehensive and proactive technical reviews and risk assessments of design and construction documents and collaborate with client teams and contractors to uncover project risks and identify opportunities to help improve project outcome.

With over 50 years' experience in failure analysis, Exponent is uniquely qualified to perform technical reviews of design and construction plans, helping to ensure safety and keep projects on track. Our civil engineering experts identify design and construction flaws, establish risk mitigation strategies, and present alternative approaches for conceptual and final designs so you can move projects forward confidently.
