Forensic Experts Evaluate Faulty Construction Materials

Forensics Expert WitnessThis construction case takes place in Nevada and involves a subcontractor that allegedly provided faulty materials and installation services. The plaintiffs were engaged in the construction of a large warehouse facility that required the use of steel roof trusses. As a result, the plaintiffs entered into a contract with defendants for the fabrication, supply and installation of all components related to the steel roofing system. Upon receiving the construction materials, employees of the plaintiff construction company noticed that multiple roofing components contained significant structural defects, and would be unsafe to install as provided. It is alleged that the plaintiff used parts from a military aircraft surplus that was haphazardly melted down, and thus failed to supply suitable and acceptable materials that complied with the prime contract, while also failing to deliver materials in accordance with the defendant’s construction schedule. The plaintiff has failed and refused to pay defendants for the damage.

Expert Witness Response E-023284

As an architect I have had substantial experience writing, interpreting, and administering construction contracts. Additionally, my extensive forensic experience with construction defects, standard of care, and other related work efforts has given me on-point and current experience with construction law. I have worked with numerous public and institutional entities at the federal, state, county, city, and university levels. I have extensive experience with all areas relating to timelines and deadlines and monitoring construction progress. I have a sound working knowledge of this state’s construction defects laws and standard of care evaluation and analyses. As presented, it seems clear that the subcontractor failed to live up to the terms of their contract.
