FDRW, INC. (Foundations Drainage Retaining Walls) was established to allow full time devotion to inspections and consulting with property owners, buyers and sellers specifically focused on foundation problems, out of level floors and movement in structures, drainage systems and retaining wall concerns.
After nearly 30 years of working in the engineering and building construction trades, Mr. Bob Brockman, the founder and former President of Brockman Engineering Contractors, Inc., founded a new inspection company in 2009.
In his career Bob has personally participated in the review, evaluation and repair of more than 7,500 properties and structures. Working with owners, buyers and sellers, Real Estate Professionals and Attorneys, his expertise has been instrumental in the remediation of unique problems with foundations, drainage, retaining walls and soil remediation. Our evaluations and reports are designed to provide the necessary information to allow our clients the ability to make educated decisions about properties.
Bob’s services as an expert witness in litigation have also resulted in many favorable resolutions for his clients.
Bob retired in 2015 and our inspections are completed solely by Robert Brockman, Bob’s oldest son. Bob mentored and trained Robert. Since 2001, Robert has personally evaluated more than 5,500 properties throughout Contra Costa, Alameda, Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Joaquin and Solano counties, throughout the entire Bay Area, specializing in foundation, drainage and retaining wall issues. Robert has extensive experience in many various foundation repair methodologies as well as drainage and retaining wall remediation and general engineering and building practices.
FDRW, INC. does not complete any repair work and prides itself in being an independent evaluation and inspection company. We provide clients with the knowledge to make a decision as to whether a foundation, drainage or retaining wall requires repair and, if so, we offer recommendations for the different foundation repair methodologies, drainage remediation or retaining wall designs that are available and whether they would even be warranted or prudent. When remediation, repair or installation of components is deemed necessary, Bob and Robert’s years of service have spawned numerous contacts which allow him to provide referrals to competent contractors and tradesmen that you can rely upon.
