Bringing Construction Risks Under Control

steel structure of a building

Large construction projects are fraught with risks – both known and unknown. When they materialize, these risks habitually have very unpleasant effects on your schedule and your bottom line. Controlling these risks calls for expertise and innovative problem solving abilities.

Since 1972 the engineers and multidisciplinary experts at McIntosh Perry have been providing building owners and managers with the information they need to complete projects successfully.

Uncovering and evaluating potential structural problems, and providing creative cost-saving solutions is a large part of what we do.

Our expertise extends from new construction projects to renovations. We’ve been tapped on several occasions to rescue construction projects gone wrong by developing solutions and overseeing repairs. Our engineers and building materials scientists have also designed support systems and hybrid structural materials that provide stronger frameworks while using less materials, resulting in significant cost savings.

We help owners and managers of industrial, commercial, and institutional buildings get better return on their investment. Our experience was honed in work on hundreds of office buildings, multi-unit residential buildings, factories, car dealerships, shopping centres, and warehouses.
