Client: Carney Badley Smith & Spellman Attorneys
Dates of Service: 2002-2004
Project Summary: Leaks became a major problem quickly after construction was completed at two similar high-end condos. A costly lawsuit was filed against the window manufacturer after an outside consulting firm conducted an examination and placed much of the blame on faulty window units.
PL:BECS Services: PL:BECS was retained by the window manufacturer’s legal team so that it could provide technical guidance. The PL:BECS investigation completely disproved the claims made against the window manufacturer.
It was determined that structural movement and infiltration by other components, rather than malfunctioning window units, were the root causes of window deflection. Severe infiltration was found at some window units, but it was established that the infiltration was not caused by the window units themselves, but rather by the improper placement of roof scuppers above these windows.
Other damage, initially attributed to broken windows, was actually brought on by post-tensioned creep of the foundations of both buildings. The PL:BECS investigation contributed to the settlement of a subset of the original claim.
