Foundation expert witnesses may be brought in for numerous types of lawsuits related to the construction industry, as foundations serve as the lowest start point and support structure for construction projects. Since foundations are such an important aspect of structural design, foundation expert consulting may be utilized for various lawsuits involving such areas as civil engineering, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, construction disputes, general contracting, building restoration, building renovation, construction management, architecture, and other disciplines related to the construction industry, each of which may be an important aspect of a potential lawsuit.
Since foundations form the beginning of a construction project, in both a physical and design sense, foundation expert witnesses are often asked to provide an expert opinion regarding how the foundations may have caused a construction defect or other such issue. Faulty foundations may have a negative effect on roofing, retaining walls, framing, concrete, and other building aspects. Whether it is built to support apartment buildings, commercial property, shopping centers, office buildings, residential real estate, civil structures, or any other type of building project, foundation are very important for ensuring safety and protection against future construction defects.
