Our architecture and engineering professionals are regularly retained to perform an integral role assisting legal professionals, representing both plaintiff and defense. Our experienced design professionals serve as expert witnesses from initial case evaluation to deposition, mediation, and trial. Fuller provides forensic analysis or premises liability consultation related to design and construction defects, life safety, standard of care, code compliance, property damage, and failures of building components or systems. Whether consulting on a single-family homeowner claim or an extensive, multi-million dollar dispute, our experts provide objective and impartial opinions.
Our professional staff provides expertise on elements related to the building envelope, including, but not limited to air and water intrusion, material failure, structural failure, condensation, cladding and fenestration performance, waterproofing, and roofing, as well as accessibility issues. Through investigation and research, we work to understand and identify the causes of the issues being experienced. Fuller outlines applicable codes and industry practices, develops successful repair strategies, and produces compelling presentations of our findings through the use of reports, photographs, supporting documents, and 3D graphics, models, and renderings.
