Technorm Forensic Engineering in Electricity and Gas

Whether it be by electricity, oil, or gas, buildings are constantly being powered by energy. However, when this energy is not properly distributed, it can pose a serious danger for a building and its occupants.

Should damages or injuries occur due too an electrical failure or a problem related to the use of gas, our engineers can identify the root cause of such events. Their extensive knowledge of the regulations concerning electrical and gas installations helps them uncover the link responsible for an incident, and that which may have escalated the consequences.
