Expert Witness

secondary title for this page

Although we hope it never happens, there are times when a situation escalates and requires legal action. Our experienced consultants have provided expert testimony in multiple states on a range of building envelope issues.

Using our 50+ years of experience as a guide, our BEC experts investigate claims and issues, identify any problems, review and provide analysis of other expert reports or claims, and then develop a proactive plan to solve issues before providing expert testimony at depositions, hearings, or trials. 

Whether the need is in a court room, in arbitration, mediation, or other dispute, BEC's experts are experienced, professional, and prepared to provide third-party evaluations of the construction issue from a building envelope perspective.
