Abtech Engineering Inc. is a full service design engineering firm. It has an excellent track record in all of the engineering disciplines it offers, including Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection and Architectural Engineering.
For over two decades, we have been in charge of the design aspect of various projects in several different cities and states across the U.S. We pay careful attention to the fact that each project is unique and conduct a thorough system analysis to ensure cost efficiency. We draw on our knowledge, garnered from over two decades of designing and investigating structures in order to appropriately balance performance, dependability and cost.
Abtech engineers have evaluated causes of structural failures and damage to a wide range of commercial, industrial, institutional and residential properties. We offer a full range of investigative and analytical services to determine structural failures due to design problems, construction deficiencies, excessive loading, explosions and fire. We have an extensive track record in analyzing damage caused by various weather phenomena, including hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, and lightning.

Abtech has helped clients assess damages, determine cause, and provide building stabilizations in the aftermath of structural failures, fires, and natural disasters. We conduct a thorough assessment of existing conditions, gathering the information including necessary testing as necessary to understand the cause and extent of damage. We have been called on to provide services after almost every hurricane and storm disaster since hurricane Andrew in 1992.

Abtech engineers have evaluated roofing ranging from single family houses to shopping malls, high rise buildings and indoor stadiums. We separate the cause of failure from faulty initial design, manufacturer’s defect, installation errors, maintenance errors, and catastrophic forces such as hurricanes and tornadoes.
Having designed the roofing system for numerous buildings, we understand how the roof interfaces with the structure, and walls that tie into the system.
Abtech Engineering provides expert assistance for resolving claims and disputes arising from failures related to design, materials, water intrusion, and accidents. Each forensic investigation is conducted with the understanding that we may be called to support our opinions in a court of law. Abtech has become a significant provider of litigation support through its structural engineering experience and knowledge of design, investigation, codes, standards, and practices.
