Omega Expands Daily Service in Orlando

Seasoned Engineer, Gregory D. Loomis, P.E. Leads the Charge into Central Florida

[Orlando, Florida—August 2020] Omega Forensic Engineering has been actively engaged in forensic investigations since the early 1990’s, most notably in South Florida. Over the last decade, Omega has been expanding its service area throughout the state earning them a spot as one of Florida’s top forensic engineering firms in residential and commercial forensic investigation services and failure analysis consulting.

While Omega Forensic Engineering has been conducting inspections in Central Florida for years, for the first time an office has been established in Orlando, offering services and speedy response time in Central Florida, with Gregory D. Loomis, P.E. at the helm.  Mr. Loomis, a seasoned cause and origin expert, has been with Omega Forensic for over a decade.

As one of the top Orlando structural engineers In the Industry, Mr. Loomis brings with him extensive knowledge and practical experience in the evaluation of construction defects and a variety of forensic engineering investigations, including failure analysis consulting and evaluation of damage caused by hurricanes, settlement, construction vibration, water damage, and more.

In addition to Mr. Loomis’s background in structural design of commercial and residential construction, as well as the preparation of structural construction documents, he has been examined under oath on numerous occasions. 

One Broward County attorney remarked:

Greg delivered a stellar performance during a recent deposition, in which he was questioned relentlessly by the attorney who tried to poke holes in his report. Greg never wavered from his opinions, no matter how many times the plaintiff’s attorney tried to manipulate his testimony. Overall I would give Greg an ‘A’ for his performance under pressure and would not hesitate to use him again at deposition and trial.

Jamey Bennett, Omega’s Director of Product Development, says:

For decades we have been known widely for our reliable expertise in South Florida and our top-notch, streamlined forensic reporting, but one of our best-kept secrets is that for over a decade we have conducted active investigations throughout the state. As we’ve grown our presence in Florida, it has been necessary to partner with capable forensic engineering consultants in new areas—but this is the first time we have taken one of our own, a seasoned engineer who has worked with us for a dozen years and moved him to a new market—right in the Orlando metropolitan area. Word is starting to get out that we have boots on the ground in Orlando, and our customers have enjoyed a quicker turnaround closer to the source. Central Florida’s needs are not exactly the same as South Florida, so it’s been great to have a dedicated engineer focused on the unique needs of this area.

Omega Forensic is not only proud of its expansion but Mr. Bennett also goes on to say that  “we are also thrilled to have two brothers, Patrick and Chris Blair—both with extensive construction experience and engineering knowledge—building our presence in the Tampa Bay region as well.”

Bennett says the company has rolled out a new regional map on its website and printed materials reflecting the territorial changes. 

Omega Forensic brings decades of experience in forensic investigations. From residential to commercial inspections, we are known for our technical expertise, our objectivity, and our clear and concise opinions.

Omega CARES!

We care about our neighbors.

As fellow residents of Florida, we care about our friends and neighbors who went through Hurricane Irma. Here are a some ways we are giving back to the community in the aftermath of the storm.

We believe it is important to get relief items to those who faced the worst part of the storm.

SaltWater Brewery on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach is currently collecting important every day items such as toilet paper, cases of water bottles, diapers, formula, and so on. They are working with an organization that will transport these items to Puerto Rico and the Florida Keys.Simply swing by SaltWater with your donation items during business hours and drop them off. We did!

And then this Saturday, September 30, 2017 we will be joining Rebuilding Together Broward County and CrossFit Empirical to do some fixing up at a military veteran’s house in Fort Lauderdale!

The television crew from Military Makeover® will be there as well, documenting the effort for inclusion in a future episode.

The work day will begin at 8 am sharp and go until 1 pm. If you’re interested in joining with us, please reply to this email with your interest and Jamey Bennett will put you on the RSVP list and get you directions to the house.
