Floor Collapse Case Investigation

Brooklyn, New York
Forensic Investigation, Condition Assessment

During the renovation of a three-story townhome in Brooklyn’s Prospects Heights neighborhood, a portion of the second floor collapsed and injured a construction worker. The structural engineer’s attorney retained Walker to investigate the floor collapse.

Walker performed a site investigation, including a review and analysis of pertinent documents and structural calculations for the new floor. Our technical experts identified the root cause of the partial collapse and provided the legal team with the assessment needed to move forward with the case.
