OVERVIEW

We were asked to join the Plaintiff’s expert team after significant work had been performed to assess a materials deficiency. Materials used on the project were degrading at an unexpected rate, though degradation was hidden from view and Plaintiffs were not incurring present-day costs. We collaborated with the diverse expert team to perform a Structural Assessment of the conditions of the 300,000 square-foot facility, to clarify the Life-Safety implications of the degradation, and to establish a timeframe for potential Life-Safety hazards. In this regard, we processed the complex technical work of the expert team into a tangible, Code-based understanding of the claim. The claim subsequently settled after deposition.
