Experts with legal flair

Buildings, bridges and tunnels are subject to structural and geotechnical principles and are often vulnerable to vibrations and shock. This applies in particular to infrastructure impacted by construction works, heavy traffic and earthquakes. In the event of damage occurring, our experts take precautionary evidence and assess the extent of the damages. They provide partisan valuation reports, 'Single Joint Expert' and court valuations. As cable car experts they also work for the Swiss Federal Office for Transport (BAV)
