Posted on August 20th, 2019
The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will host a webinar entitled "State of the Construction Defect Industry in 2019: What's the Same and What's New?" on Sept. 17, open to all interested parties. Leading the webinar are Pete Fowler and Alex Prokop of Pete Fowler Construction Services. Register now for this complimentary session.
This webinar will serve as an introduction to Construction Defects (CD) and the world of CD litigation. The speakers will review the history of the CD industry and offer an understanding of building performance standards, investigation practices and how they relate to CD. Fowler and Prokop also will explore where the industry is headed.
Pete Fowler has been speaking and writing about CD and CD litigation since the 1990s. In 2011, his company presented a program to AAMA Western Region Summit participants entitled, "The Construction Defect Lifecycle." In 2017, they were invited back to present "State of the Construction Defect Industry: What's the Same and What's New."
"The CD Industry continues to evolve rapidly, so we are back with more updates," said Fowler. "We offer a high-level overview of the world of construction defect litigation. Lots of folks have had to deal with this kind of litigation, and it's best to have a map in hand."
