Toronto, ON – Today, Kodsi Forensic Engineering and DIALOG have announced that they will be offering comprehensive set of Forensic Structural Engineering Services through an integrated partnership. The partnership creates a court-tested and multi-disciplinary team with extensive experience in building design and forensic investigations.

The brand new service line will help insurers better understand structural issues, causes, and effects that arise in property claims by providing building and structural inspections, evidence preservation, surveying, failure analysis, and remediation or rehabilitation if and when necessary. Whether the property claim in question requires expertise in foundation and framing failures, soil/earth/geotechnical issues, water damage from leaks and floods, wind damage, or building code issues, insurers can count on a complete solution, all in one place.

Kodsi Forensic Engineering, through its acquisition of Forensic Engineering Inc., pioneered forensic structural engineering investigations by being the first firm in Canada to offer the expertise in 1968. Kodsi Forensic Engineering brings to the partnership a rich heritage of objective, research-based, and court-tested forensic science and engineering matters.

DIALOG was established in 1960 and is a leading Canadian multi-disciplinary design firm, bringing engineers, architects, planners, and sustainability experts together across four studios in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver. DIALOG, through its key Structural Engineering experts, Daria Khachi and Nabil Mansour, brings to the partnership its extensive experience in cutting-edge building design and the latest tools, techniques, and expertise in inspection, analysis, and remediation.

Both firms are looking forward to working together to bring a full suite of forensic structural engineering services to the insurance industry.
