VERTEX was retained by two insurance carriers to provide expert analysis and testimony in defense of a General Contractor for the construction of a new 60,000+ SF beverage warehouse/distribution facility in upstate New York. The building owner filed a multi-million-dollar claim due to alleged defects in their new facility.
To address the wide array of alleged defective conditions, VERTEX’s team of experts included a building envelope consultant, structural engineer, civil engineer, geotechnical expert, and certified professional estimator. Aspects of the project analyzed included pre-fabricated metal building systems, various roofing and wall cladding systems, structural steel, concrete floor slabs, loading docks, HVAC systems, stormwater management, and site improvements.
The analysis and testimony provide by VERTEX’s team of experts resulted in an overall favorable decision in arbitration for the General Contractor.
