Construction management is responsible for various types of construction. The construction management experts are often needed for legal matters related to construction defects, construction damages, construction delays, cost estimating, cost control, valuation, site inspections, zoning, building remodeling, contract disputes, structural performance, construction funds disbursement, drainage, and other unforeseen circumstances. Construction management expert witnesses would be brought in for such cases, whether it involves financial concerns, employee health, contractual issues, or issues with the construction itself.
Construction management expert witnesses should know, as with any type of industrial area, that the occupational safety and health (OSHA) of the employees on a construction site should be regulated by the construction management in relation to building codes and compliance. If the construction equipment were not operated in a safe manner, the construction management company would be responsible for not having properly trained the employees. General liability is an important factor when working within a dangerous workplace environment, such as a construction site. Construction defects with the potential of causing health and sanitary issues once the construction project is complete, including insufficient drainage and sewage systems, may also bring about claims against the construction management that oversaw the initial project.
With lawsuits related to construction management, expert witnesses may be called upon to offer an expert opinion with a failure analysis as to whether a construction defects is, in fact, the fault of said management, or that of the future owners and/or tenants.
