High Point Uptown Apartments is a luxury residential complex near the Galleria consisting of two apartment buildings encompassing 277 units and including a parking garage, plaza, pool, fitness center, and courtyard. As construction progressed, the original schedule milestones slipped due to a variety of reasons, including weather delays. There were also allegations of construction defects in the completed work, including issues with the load bearing walls and lateral load resisting system.

Ultimately, the managing partner of the development team terminated the general contractor when the project had reached approximately 75% completion and retained a replacement general contractor to finish the project. Following termination of the original general contractor, a dispute arose regarding the final value of the construction contract accounting for work-inprogress, punch list items, and alleged construction defect items.

Walter P Moore was retained by the legal team on behalf of the original general contractor to analyze the allegations related to the work-in-progress, punch list items, and construction defects. Walter P Moore’s subject matter experts reviewed the conditions of the partially constructed project, reviewed contemporaneous documentation, and performed analysis of the structural load bearing wall systems. This work included preparation of expert reports and deposition testimony in the matter which was ultimately settled during mediation prior to trial.
