What is building forensic consulting? Building forensic consulting is the investigation of building design, structures, construction, materials, products, and/or components that fail or do not operate/function as intended, resulting in personal injury and/or damage to property.

epi Investigations, Inc.'s (epi) forensic consultants provide expert analysis to determine the cause and origin of damages to building structures. Our highly specialized professionals provide expert opinions and testimony on matters such as structural integrity, mechanical or electrical evaluation, and analysis of building product failures, design and construction defects, and inadequate building maintenance.
