The Mission: Engineering With Compassion

ABBOTT CONSULTING was formed to accomplish one goal:

To help others in need by providing ethical, non-bias professional engineering services. Storms come. Things happen. Buildings get damaged. People must put the buildings and their lives back together. Professional engineers can help with compassion by working diligently for the goal of restoring lives.

Our Approach

We believe that the most important building is the building in which we eat, sleep, and raise our families.

Every structure that we enter should allow us to come home safely at the end of the day.


We know that our reputation is only as good as the results of our last job. That's why we pride ourselves on following through on every assignment. 

Ethics and Integrity

Integrity makes all the difference in sorting out building issues after unfortunate events.

There are unique ethical aspects within forensic engineering that must be followed.  Read More
