WJE has participated in the engineering or architectural investigation of nearly every major failure and natural disaster in the United States since 1970. Thousands of clients have relied on WJE to accurately determine the extent of damage and repairs needed following structural failures, fires, and natural disasters. WJE’s experienced structural engineers, architects, and materials scientists have earned a reputation for quickly responding to catastrophic events, frequently arriving on site the same day as a disaster.

WJE offers a full range of investigative, analytical, and laboratory techniques to determine the cause and extent of damage. WJE’s extensive in-house laboratories include a wide range of equipment and services for structural, architectural component, and materials testing. These resources enable WJE engineers and architects to better understand structural response to extreme events and to develop repairs and replacement systems to meet future performance expectations. WJE can also assist clients with recovery by providing temporary solutions that quickly return damaged structures to service.
