MRI was originally contacted by a potential buyer , referred to MRI by a structural engineer, that was interested in purchasing a large, fairly new constructed apartment complex. After the purchase failed to materialize, the property management firm retained MRI to develop a full damage evaluation and cost estimate of potential repairs. MRI performed a comprehensive survey and organized checklists to evaluate the entire property. MRI had found several design and construction errors, as well as potential collapse areas at the landing and stairs. Safety measures were immediately implemented to protect the residents, property managers, and investors in the complex. Design recommendations were made and an engineered repair scope and estimate were developed.
