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 design, production of construction documents, and observation services during construction.

Mr. McGovern’s focus lies 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 develop long term maintenance plans as well as to address current failures or distress.

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