VERTEX provided construction claims expert services for a party to a dispute involving a $51.9M mixed-use building in Miami, Florida. The project scope was for the construction of a 606,800 square-foot building with office, retail, and parking garage space.
VERTEX provided expert opinions regarding the propriety of the GC’s termination of the concrete subcontractor, the merits and quantification of the GC’s claims for numerous cases of defective work, and the merits and quantification of the subcontractor’s claims for additional work and delays. VERTEX provided expert analysis for the Defendant GC and successfully defended against the Plaintiff Subcontractor’s $3.5 million claim by establishing that the termination was proper (the extent of defective work rose to the level of a material breach and the subcontractor was provided ample opportunity to cure) and the subcontractor was responsible for delays to its own work. VERTEX also successfully supported the Plaintiff GC’s claim for $5 million through our analysis of every remediation cost item. VERTEX’s defense response, damage analysis, forensic schedule evaluation, and trial testimony resulted in a multimillion-dollar award for the client.
