Impartial advice on structural faults and latent defects

Specialist advice and ‘expert witness’ services

The Inertia Consulting team has decades of experience in inspecting, testing, designing and capacity assessing structures to find out why they’re not performing correctly. We use this knowledge and our design expertise to provide forensic engineering, advice and ‘expert witness’ services to insurance providers, blue chip companies, local authorities and other public sector organisations.

Using this knowledge, we provide detailed specialist advice to our clients on the causes of problems with buildings, bridges and other heavy civil engineering structures. In our capacity as ‘expert witness’, we can present evidence in court on a wide range of structural and bridge-related matters.

Spanning our full range of sectors and services

We work for both claimants and defendants to build accurate and water-tight cases that will stand up in court. Our clients include insurance providers, blue chip companies, local authorities and other public sector clients. The legal works we carry out span all the other sectors we work with and cover our entire range of services.

Due to the confidential nature of our legal sector services, we can’t provide details of any of the cases we’ve worked on. But if you’d like to know more about our expert witness and forensic engineering services, or need help with a case, please get in touch.

Client testimonial

“We had a complex dispute involving several parties. Inertia were excellent from the start, providing very clear and prompt advice. David Roome and his team are very personable and always willing to go the extra mile.

The quality of their advice and reports stood out from the other experts appointed in the dispute, both in terms of the detailed investigations they carried out and the presentation of their reports. A top quality service all round.”
