OVERVIEW

We were retained after 1.5 years of disagreement between the Structural Engineers for the Insured and the Underwriter regarding earthquake damage to a 128,000 square-foot Insured’s facility. We assisted Insured and Underwriters in understanding the extent of earthquake damage, the implications of damage, and the necessary repairs. An on-site investigation was performed and we were able to identify damage that had been previously undetected. The undetected damage was shown to be critical for Life-Safety structural performance, so we developed a presentation that clearly explained the technical, code, and Life-Safety implications. The matter settled shortly after our presentation.
