Legal
Consulting

Patrick Beville, IONCON's Principal Engineer, has been called as expert witness in many cases involving structural deficiencies in the High Country.

From Our Clients

“If there’s one thing that I can say about IONCON, it’s that they put their customer’s best interests first. I worked for a foundation repair company that advised customers to have Patrick come out and advise them on their foundation issues. He always approached the job with their best interests at heart, and with their wallet in mind. I wouldn’t call anyone else in the high country with my engineering needs but IONCON. No doubt.”
