Brown & Beattie’s Professional Engineers are positioned to respond quickly to claims throughout Ontario and provide our expert advice including emergency calls where temporary support is required to stabilize damaged buildings and limit the extent of further damage.
We provide un-biased, clear and timely report & drawing formats that we have developed. We have found these to be particularly suitable to the insurance industry. These include identifying pre-existing conditions and Building Code implications that need to be known during the claim or repair process.
In addition to reports, we can also provide detailed structural repair drawings to facilitate contractor budgeting as well as Building Permit application. Our structural repair drawings are prepared with contractor budgeting and Building Permit application in mind, based on our years of experience dealing with Building Departments throughout Ontario. Each drawing package is prepared based on the scope of the project, whether it involves localized repairs or demolition and complete replacement.
Brown & Beattie also provides Engineering General Review services and reporting where required to review the structural repair or the demolition of buildings ranging from single family homes up to large industrial buildings. We also have the necessary experience to provide appraisal and litigation support during legal disputes, with experience providing evidence at trial.
Building Code reviews are also routinely completed as part of our design when repairing damaged buildings, including the requirements of Part 11 of the Ontario Building Code which deals specifically with the repair and renovation of existing buildings. Brown & Beattie is also experienced in completing Code compliance reviews of existing structures including walkways, stairs, and ramps as part of personal injury claims.
Independent adjusters and large insurance companies alike have come to rely Brown & Beattie year after year to provide Engineering support and the honest facts and technical information to ultimately help resolve claims quickly and effectively.
