Construction Damages and Defects
I have over 40 years experience in the construction industry. With Degrees in Architecture and Engineering as well as being a Certified Construction Manager (CCM). My experience spans virtually every type of building and design process known to man. My strength centers on my understanding of the dynamics and interactions of the multitude of various trades and professions unique to every building project. Whether CM at risk, CM agency, Design-build, or Design-bid-build, I have been on all sides of the ball. Understanding the parameters of your specific building project and your case needs allows me to address those needs efficiently, accurately and successfully. I evaluate and “see the big picture” of how the conflicts requiring investigation were initially born and then how subsequent events, or the lack of, escalated to result in your claim, conflict or litigation. I focus on presenting the information supporting my findings and your case needs in a professional yet simple manner which can be understood by a lay person and/or jury. Attorneys have commented that my ability to provide them with the information they need in a format they can understand, use, articulate and present as being uncanny. I have often been asked if I am an attorney as well. When I am on your team I do the hard work for you and hand it to you in a well organized, easily searchable format. Having been a teacher of many of the principles and processes used in the industry I know how to explain the difficult technical aspects of the information and analysis in a way which makes the facts understandable and believable to the people who need to grasp the facts. Whether it is opposing counsel, insurance company a judge or a jury.
The following is a brief description of my experience: I worked my way through college receiving my Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1976, with Honors, and immediately went to work for TVA as a structural engineer in the nuclear design program. I went to Graduate school at night and received my Masters degree in Civil Engineering in 1982. Prior to leaving TVA in 1984 I had advanced to the position of Director of Engineering Services. I served as a Regional Engineer for the American Institute of Steel Construction for 2 years and as Director of Construction and Development for Belz Enterprises, the largest development company in Tennessee, for two years before I went into business for myself in 1988. I founded Construction Plus Inc. (CPI) in 1988 based upon principle centered leadership and currently serve as the President and CEO. CPI has won local, regional and national awards for design, cost, innovation, leadership, growth, business excellence and safety. I have successfully managed the completion of over a Billion dollars of construction. I look forward to hearing from you to see if I may be of service for you and your clients.
