Echem Consultants LLC is a leading forensic and material science consultancy located in the northeast.
We cater to owners, engineers, architects, and contractors with an intent to preserve the built environment and to assist in creating better, more durable structures. Our comprehensive approach to extending our clients assets is based on the tenants of our holistic approach, Life 52™.
Echem Consultants provides investigative and diagnostic services to better understand construction problems and failures, predictive modeling to forecast behavior and durability, long term repair alternatives, and field support services.
Echem Consultants is a certified NYS/ NYJ Woman-Owned and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (WBE/ DBE). Where possible, we will work with clients to get Uniform Certification Approvals in reciprocal states.
Our focus is on extant structures, construction materials, and understanding how engineered structures and their components interact over time. With unparalleled expertise in forecasting durability and long term performance of construction materials, we customize our programs for the site specific structure under investigation.
Whether your failing structure is a building, bridge, tunnel, utility or landmark, Echem is prepared to investigate and understand the issues impacting performance with our i-spec services. Our investigations are complemented by our laboratory services offered under our suite of L-spec test methods.
After determining root cause failures and material conditions Echem Consultants assists in designing test programs and appropriate long-term repairs. As part of the design team, Echem designs and oversees the installation of associated repairs (e-spec). Our field services (f-spec) include construction administration, third party independent testing, and owner representation.
We collaborate with national and international experts, and provide material support to many engineering and architecture firms.
Echem Consultants stays current with the most up-to-date diagnostic methods and advanced treatments on the market by regularly chairing technical committees, presenting at and attending professional conferences and industry events.
