Mechanical and HVAC System Evaluations

Modern building mechanical systems, equipment, and controls are vital to the operation and performance of building systems for enhancing energy efficiencies, water management, and the built environment for human occupancy and storage.

When mechanical systems, as well as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems break down or fail, Rimkus provides building system engineers and experts to assess the cause of loss and determine the extent of damage to building systems and components. Our team has extensive experience in the examination of mechanical system design, construction, installation, as well as operation and maintenance issues.

Our forensic investigation, failure analysis, and testing expertise encompasses mechanical and electrical equipment, centralized heating plants, cooling towers, air handlers, boilers and chillers, heat exchangers, water heaters and tanks, water pumps for heating, cooling, and fire suppression systems, water main distribution piping and valves, sprinkler distribution piping and pumps, back-up electrical generators, cold storage systems, elevator and escalator machinery, and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment, as well as the control systems.
