Mr. Seegebrecht has worked in the construction industry for over 35 years.
For the past 30 years, he has been conducting troubleshooting of concrete and shotcrete problems. Problems vary on each project and frequently are a combination of issues. Common concrete problems include: low strength, uncontrolled cracking, air content irregularities. Investigations frequently include examination of fire damage to concrete building elements, spalling, scaling, honeycombing, delamination, debonding and other forms of distress or loss of durability.
Past projects involved evaluation of design, materials and workmanship issues for various structures including: pools and decks, commercial and residential slabs-on-ground, aviation pavements, elevated decks, storage tanks, parking structures, chimneys and many other structures. Consulting on construction issues may include providing input on concrete mixture design, appropriate testing, placing, finishing and curing. Past troubleshooting clients have avoided problems on subsequent projects by discussing potentially problematic specifications requirements before bidding or construction.
