Jeff began work as a Forensic Structural Engineer in 2005 when he came to Florida to perform catastrophe work in the aftermath of Hurricanes Charley, Frances and Jeanne. Jeff has since performed hundreds of commercial and residential forensic engineering investigations, determining cause, origin and extent of damage involving issues such as building collapses, construction defect, building envelope failures, moisture intrusion, hail damage, vehicle and tree impacts, explosions and fires. He has also performed construction oversite and investigations regarding high-end condominium buildings along Florida’s coastline.
