Mr. Ficcadenti has over forty years of experience in structural engineering design, evaluation and retrofit of buildings. His background combines a strong technical knowledge with practical construction experience and effective communication skills. He successfully has applied innovative engineering solutions to a broad range of construction projects as the Engineer of Record.

He has served as a forensic structural engineer, evaluating construction problems, insurance damage claims and construction defect allegations. He has been retained as an expert witness and has testified in over 75 trials, as well as numerous arbitrations.
