Depending on the damage

Our experts join forces when our clients face various damages which may require an immediate response, such as:

Health Damages

MSEI offers cutting-edge microbiology expertise to find the causes of bacterial, mould and fungal growth. Our chemists investigate and report on consumer goods, process chemistry, and food chemistry. They also work on files where industrial hygiene is at stake (for example asbestos).

Environmental Damages

MSEI offers environmental assessment services, decontamination management, disposal recommendations for contaminated products and materials (including the management of petroleum hydrocarbon products and asbestos) as well as site rehabilitation and restoration.

Building & Structural Damages

MSEI provides the services of civil engineers to determine the causes of construction failures, and develops the design and implementation of retaining walls, structural modeling and analysis as well as the evaluation of building envelopes, soils and foundations.

Damages Linked to Fire & Explosions

Fire and explosion investigations require rigorous investigation and analysis. Our fire investigations help determine how and why a fire or explosion started, and whether it was accidental or intentional.

Agricultural Damages

MSEI offers agronomy services to assess and quantify crop losses or other damage resulting from the use of pesticides, and from climatic, soils or fertilization problems. Our expertise also extend to the analysis of losses in animal production related to food or microbiology. Our experts also work on soil rehabilitation, waste management and composting.

Damages Linked to Metallic & Non-metallic Materials

MSEI offers the services of its experts to determine the causes and origins of structural or mechanical failures, as well as to analyze material failures and corrosion. MSEI also provides industrial consultation and laboratory testing.

Damages Linked to Mechanical Failures

When a “mechanical system” fails, the resulting damage can be extensive: loss of production, personal injury, flooding, and fire causing damage to property, to name a few. MSEI‘s experts master several technical disciplines, which allows them to investigate the origin and determine the cause of the breakage and bring the file to its conclusion, whether it is an industrial, commercial or residential case.

According to the Expertise

MSEI offers a wide variety of scientific and engineering expertise through our knowledgeable experts working in close collaboration.

For many of our cases, our expertise goals are to establish the origin and causes of contaminations or defects,
or to scientifically explain the problematics brought up by our clients.

MSEI also offers remediation, management, work protocols and surveillance of cases involving environmental or other contaminations.
