The facilities engineers at Robson Forensic have hands-on experience in a broad range of industries and facility types. Among our experts, you can find firsthand experience in electrical generation, manufacturing, health care, education, and more.

Expertise in the Operational Aspects of a Building or Facility

Facilities engineers serve as the operational hub that coordinates efforts between on-site engineering departments, maintenance workers, custodial staff, groundskeepers, security, and more. With responsibilities for health, safety, and the environment, the facilities engineer has a comprehensive perspective of the site and its personnel.

As it applies to forensic casework, the facilities engineer often represents the common link; the one technical professional capable of establishing and evaluating the standard of care in a broad range of mishaps. Particularly in cases that involve multi-disciplinary work sites, or issues that blend traditional technical fields, a facilities engineer may be the only single expert qualified to address the totality of the matter.

Scope of Facilities Engineering Casework

  • Housekeeping
  • Landscaping
  • Industrial Processes
  • Machine Safety
  • Pest Control

Requiring a broad foundation of technical expertise, many facilities engineers have an academic background rooted in mechanical or industrial engineering, supplemented with fundamental elements of electrical and structural systems. A background in marine engineering is another common path for facilities engineers, as it encompasses the full range of complex systems found onboard modern ships.
