Design, Construction, and Material Defects
Construction is complex. Defects resulting from improper construction, design, or materials are costly and can create extensive delays or business interruption. CTLGroup’s technical experts develop solutions to minimize project delays, facilitate claims processes, and return the construction to a serviceable condition.

- Design Defects- Defects stemming from errors and omissions in the design relative to applicable requirements in codes and standards, or relative to the industry standard of care.
- Construction Defects- Failure of the as-built construction to conform to applicable requirements specified in the design documents, the overall design intent, the manufacturer’s installation instructions, or industry standards.
