When disputes arise or complaints are made concerning competency issues, it is sometimes necessary for a review to be done in order to validate or disprove the accusations. Structural peer reviews can include interviews, review of documents obtained during the review process and technical reviews. It is imperative that such reviews are handled in a professional manner and with the utmost integrity. We pride ourselves in delivering this type of peer review.
In another word, Peer review is a process that assesses the quality, correctness, and suitability of a submitted design. The peer review can focus on the whole project or any specific area, such as the design criteria, performance objectives, structural design concept, lateral-force-resisting system, code provisions, or any major design issues or design details. ESI's Engineers’ peer review approach may consist of the following:
- Conceptual Design: Advise and assist the client’s engineering staff in the development of conceptual retrofit design and related design parameters (material tests, properties, design criteria) to satisfy their performance requirements and other criteria
- Detailed Design: Advise and assist a client’s engineering staff during the development of analyses, detailed design, and construction documents, as required
- Retrofit Design: Participate in site visit of a facility to review physical condition of building and the workability of conceptual and detailed designs.
