Building Systems

Building systems refers to the mechanical (HVAC), electrical, and plumbing systems found in modern buildings. Our experts are frequently engaged in cases involving construction delay claims, product malfunctions, as well as alleged installation errors.

Examples of building systems include heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems; plumbing, gas piping, fire protection, and sewer systems; and various electrical systems.

Building Systems Construction Claims

When the installation of building systems goes awry as part of medium to large construction projects there are often substantial costs and delays. Our experts are frequently retained in these cases to analyze the actions of mechanical and electrical contractors within the scope of the project.

Building Systems Injury Claims

When building systems malfunction they are often associated with fires, explosions, electrical shocks, CO poisonings, and mold growth. In these incidents our experts are often retained to investigate the performance of specific building systems, with regard to product design, installation, service, and inspection.
