Wynn L. White Consulting Engineers is a broad-based environmental and engineering consulting firm founded in 1987.
Located in Baton Rouge, LA, we provide professional engineering, environmental, health, and safety management services in the public and private sectors.
Our focus is to work with organizations that want to protect their employees and with managers who want to cut environmental and safety costs.
We offer services and capabilities to lower owners’ risks through effective management of environmental, health, and safety exposures. Our main objective is to provide professional services which will allow our customers to concentrate on their core business functions.
Our firm typically manages projects from defining problems, solutions, and project goals to monitoring of construction until completion.
We prepare plans and specifications, assist the owner in obtaining construction bids, and manage the contractor monitoring/observation.
One of our largest forensic projects included determining the cause of moisture and mold in a multistory hotel.
The work included coordinating the project team and providing liaison to the owner. Disciplines included civil, environmental and mechanical engineering; operating engineers; and testing and balancing personnel. The field work included wall and ceiling moisture assessment, bore scoping interstitial spaces, window installation investigation, cladding system evaluation, HVAC system evaluation (differential pressure, temperature and relative humidity) and mapping the data. Moisture control in building experience consists of analyzing forensic data, reviewing HVAC test and balance reports, and providing recommendations for corrections. Subsequent work included providing expert testimony.
Our expert witness philosophy is that we are a friend of the court. Our job is to give an engineering opinion that will help the trier of fact reach a reasonable decision (we tell it like it is, not necessarily like our client might wish it).
Our firm is a pioneer in Louisiana’s asbestos management industry.
Our firm completed more school system asbestos inspections and management plans by the original deadline than any other firm.
Our asbestos work carried us from mostly commercial buildings to the petrochemical sector. We help schools, commercial, and petrochemical facilities manage and mitigate asbestos, mold, lead, hexavalent chromium, silica, and noise.
