News Release

November 2014 News Release


October 2011 News Release:






The arrival of cooler weather and fall season mark the 5 year anniversary of Behrens Engineering Investigations (BEI).  Fall is by far my favorite time of the year.


I don’t know about you but I have had enough talk about “haboobs” and the long hot Phoenix summer of 2011.  Whatever happened to just calling it a “dust storm”?  I have lived in Phoenix since 1972, but this is the first summer I have ever heard of any of our dust storms being called a “haboob”.


We are celebrating the completion of 5 successful years in business.  Thank you for helping us achieve this milestone.


We appreciate your business and trust in allowing BEI to provide forensic engineering consulting services.


The goal and mission of BEI from day one has been:


To provide Professional, Thorough, Timely and Cost-Effective Forensic Engineering Services


The wide variety of failures that we have investigated and analyzed over the past 28 years has provided a skill set to “think outside the box” in the forensic engineering practice.  This diversity combined with our methodical, detailed and inquisitive approach results in providing solid opinions to complex issues.
