Expertise DescriptionI have more than 50 years of experience running a construction company as a Contractor. Through my business, I have handled diverse projects: from custom single-family residences; to low- rise to mid-rise multi-family properties; to specialty museums and theatres; from motels to boutique hotels, to convention and recreational hotels; to warehouses and industrial plants; to office buildings and commercial interiors; to specialty zoological exhibits and recreational facilities. These projects have included new construction, renovations, and restorations nationwide. I have performed investigative services to seek and establish the cause of building component failures and make recommendations for corrections. I also have performed building code interpretations with field inspections or review of plans and specifications. I have over 12 years of expert witness experience with consultation, deposition, and courtroom testimony. Cases have included issues of building codes; permitting; costs of construction; means and methodologies; standards of care of contractors, architects, and engineers; Fair Housing Act and Americans with Disabilities Act; stair construction and slip and fall; and property insurance claims.
