The tragedy at Champlain Towers South in Surfside, Florida, in 2021, was a wake-up call to building owners across the country to re-evaluate building maintenance procedures and the status of necessary repairs. As a result, contractors, developers, engineers, and architects are seeing a steady uptick in requests to develop bid packages and solicitations for bids for necessary repairs. While these are lucrative projects, there are also legal risks associated with performing restoration work or any work on an existing structure.
McDonald Hopkins RE-CON Team guides contractors, developers, engineers, and architects from beginning to end when undertaking construction remediation and renovation work. The complexity and risks associated with restoration work requires diligence at the initial stage, and putting the time in up-front is worth it to make sure you are not accepting unnecessary risk. Our team can help ensure you are legally protected right from the start. We also work with our clients to review insurance policies and ensure the appropriate insurance coverage and polices are in place before any work on a restoration construction project begins. In the unfortunate event of an accident, our RE-CON team is ready to represent our clients in the defense of claims that could arise.
As part of a full service business advisory and advocacy law firm, the attorneys on McDonald Hopkins’ RE-CON Team also have extensive experience on the other side of the table, representing owners and individual members of condominium associations and boards who many not be familiar with all the details and legal documentation that goes into a construction renovation project. We assist these individuals with reviewing D&O policies and liabilities, as well representing them on any number of other issues they face personally as members of their condominium associations or boards.
