Terrence M. McGovern

Senior Associate

 
Experience

Terry McGovern has participated in the investigation and rehabilitation of multiple concrete, steel, and wood structures. Many of these projects have included in-depth analysis, repair and rehabilitation design, production of construction documents, and observation services during construction.

Mr. McGovern’s focus is in the area of existing structures, with an emphasis on concrete structures. He has participated and led the evaluation of many cast-in-place, precast, prestressed, and post-tensioned concrete structures. These evaluations have included assessments of structures to evaluate current levels of distress and develop short- and long-term maintenance and repair plans.

In addition, Mr. McGovern has evaluated numerous concrete and coating material failures, identifying the causes of the failures and providing recommendations for repair.
