ASSESS THE SITUATION
Once retained and we understand your initial concerns and the scope of your request for engineering services, RIVET’s engineers will review the available pertinent information and will likely request a meeting at the property to gather additional information. Some of our smaller projects are resolved during this initial on-site meeting. More complex issues often require additional documentation and engineering services. If additional or further evaluation is necessary, RIVET will develop and discuss a plan of action with you.
After the concerns have been carefully reviewed and the facts considered, RIVET provides the client with either a verbal consult or an engineered report of our findings, opinions, conclusions, photographs, and/or recommendations as necessary. Additionally, depending on the client’s specific property issues or requests, RIVET may provide stamped engineered plans (Design Engineering services) for repair, modification, reinforcement, etc.
