We emphasize the need for trained professionals in the construction industry. However, scholarship applicants may choose to pursue any advanced course of education in any field.

“In my three plus decades as part of the Marin Builders Association, it has been so rewarding to see this program flourish, meet the students, and share their personal challenges. Witnessing their achievements and successes has been truly inspiring. We are so proud our program has provided nearly $1 million in scholarship awards to such incredible young people to assist them in continuing their education and to support their dreams.” — Paula Krause, Program Coordinator and Office Manager, Marin Builders Association Scholarship Program

ROP Construction Technology Program A partnership with Marin County Office of Education Nearly three decades ago, the Marin Builders Association helped to create the Regional Occupational Program Construction Technology Class to help introduce high school students to the construction industry.

"At the ROP Construction class, we are building skills in construction. High school students and adults are learning tool safety and job site safety. We put power tools in the hands of teenagers. They are learning residential framing techniques, while building custom garden/ storage sheds from the ground up. Students learn the importance of reading a tape measure, a new vocabulary, and life-long skills." — Tom Eller, Program Director, Regional Occupational Program (ROP) Construction Technology

BEFORE HIRING A CONTRACTOR Check to see if the contractor is a member of the Marin Builders Association in good standing at Check the contractor license number at to make sure it is current and in good standing. Ask to see the contractor’s pocket license and a current photo ID. Ask for a list of current contact information (telephone number and business address) for the contractor, subcontractors, and suppliers. Find out from your local building department whether your project needs a building permit and confirm that your contractor will obtain all necessary permits. Get at least three contractor bids and references, and check out, in person, each prospective contractor’s recent similar projects.

Make sure all project materials and expectations are spelled out and signed in a written contract, including clean-up, debris removal, and site security. Ask your contractor if he or she understands your project expectations. Schedule and document each phase of your project and the corresponding payment schedule. Do not let payments get ahead of the work. Pay no more than 10% down or $1,000, whichever is less. Avoid paying in cash. Keep all of your project documents, including payments and photographs, in a job file. Try researching your contractor’s name online for additional reviews.

Ask whether your contractor carries general liability insurance for employees in case accidental damage occurs during the project, and workers’ compensation insurance for employees.

Building A Dream Team To Create A Dream Home



Building a Dream Team

Marin Home Resource Guide

Building a Dream Team Contributor Gregory Cook Cook Construction





Marin Home Resource Guide


IN TODAY’S WORLD, OUR HOMES HAVE BECOME MORE CENTRAL TO OUR LIVES THAN EVER BEFORE. THEY ARE MUCH MORE THAN PLACES TO CONNECT WITH OUR FAMILIES AND FIND COMFORT; THEY ALSO SERVE AS OUR OFFICES, OUR GYMS, AND OUR SCHOOLS. AS A RESULT, WE ARE TAKING GREATER NOTICE OF OUR SURROUNDINGS AND CONTEMPLATING IMPROVEMENTS TO MAKE THEM MORE BEAUTIFUL, MORE FUNCTIONAL, MORE PRACTICAL. IN OTHER WORDS, WE WANT TO CREATE OUR DREAM HOME. To build your dream home, you need to start with a dream team. Choosing your team is crucial to the success of your project, whether it is a renovation or ground-up build. Securing your dream team before breaking ground will ensure clear expectations. It will allow for ample preparation, collaboration, and the ability to create cohesive timelines. Building a dream home is a long-term investment, and although the initial anticipation and excitement may overwhelm you, it is worth the time and effort to assemble an ideal team that will help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Create Your Dream Home


Building a Dream Team

Marin Home Resource Guide

What You Should Know Before Choosing Your Team •

Whether you are building on a parcel of land or forging ahead on a remodel, building a complete dream team early on and with all players on board is the best way to ensure success, especially with budget and time in mind.

As with any other project, a big part of the success factor is liking the people with whom you are collaborating, both professionally and on a personal level.

Avoid letting cost drive all your decisions. Determine a list of nice-to-haves, want-to-haves, and must-haves so your team knows precisely where your priorities lie.

As opposed to competitively bidding the project, prepare to negotiate a bid with your chosen contractor to address the budgetary, scheduling, and design solutions together and to reach a plan that works for you.

Who Should Be on Your Team? GENERAL CONTRACTOR. Your contractor or project management firm should drive the entire construction process. Their involvement is essential to understanding the scale, scope, timeline, and cost of a project. They are ultimately responsible for the coordination and execution of all phases of construction, from inception to completion. DESIGN PROFESSIONAL. Typically, your design professional will be an architect. The architect you choose will depend on the scope, size, and style of your project. Your project management team can help you work through that process to find the best fit. Your contractor and architect will work together throughout the design and permitting process to ensure feasibility of construction, permit, and budget. STRUCTURAL ENGINEER. If your home design calls for changes in openings, such as windows or doors, or the relocation of a loadbearing wall, then you will need to engage a structural engineer, who will account for safety protocols and provide drawings for permit approval. Your project management team can and should help you navigate those decisions. INTERIOR DESIGNER. Projects often benefit from an interior designer, who controls the color palette and soft goods. This role carries a lot of visual impact, and their work is layered on top of the foundation established by the architect and contractor. CLIENT REPRESENTATIVE. If scheduling conflicts deter you from attending vital meetings, hire a client representative. They are there to advocate for you and your vision. This can alleviate stress on your part, especially in the case of a grand-scale project. 22

Project Details Project by Cook Construction, Photography by Joe Fletcher and provided by Joseph Lucier This 7,000-square-foot, single-family home was a dream project in both scale and design. Located at the base of Sutro Tower, it is San Francisco’s highest private residence above sea level. Remodel highlights: •

Floor-to-ceiling pocket doors, trimless casings and baseboards and other hidden reveals to create a sleek, yet functional gravitas.

23-foot custom windows in the kitchen and living areas to reveal breathtaking panoramic views of the city.

State-of-the-art appliances, European cabinetry, and Lucifer mud-in lighting in the kitchen.

A nourishing spa, complete with sauna, steam room and custom stainless hot tub, and a large fitness studio that overlooks the garden.

In the entryway, a three-story cable lighting suspension with hand-made grey glass crystals to cast shadows along the staircase’s Tottos-cut travertine wall.

Rich selections of polished Calcutta Oro marble, Faungone linen stone, and Ann Sacks tile, elevating the interior look.

Designed for grand scale entertaining with an open plan main living level with Blomberg Low-E rated main window. La Cantina sliders access deck on either side of honed-lava stone inset Montego gas fireplace. Walkout balcony off living room.


Building a Dream Team

Which traits should you look for in a dream team member? A good meld of personality and working style. Maybe you have a good working history, or maybe you've only met briefly, but you can tell early on that you will have success working together on a project from a philosophical standpoint as well as personally. There’s trust and respect on both sides. Communication, transparency, and collaboration. On the ideal dream team, everybody is moving in the same direction. Look for team members that are strong and consistent communicators, are willing to be transparent about cost and timing, and have shown that they are willing to work with others to create solutions for their clients. Clear delineation of responsibilities. Sometimes there is crossover in roles—for example, this often happens with interior designer and architecture teams. Team members who have overlapping responsibilities need to be able to address those overlaps at the project’s beginning and work through them so that everyone is clear on who is doing what, as well as preventing tasks from falling through the cracks. Experts who know their area of expertise—and that is what they bring to the table. Everyone on the team should know their role and how it fits into the bigger picture. For example, at Cook Construction, we don’t try to be interior designers or architects. We are definitely there to build. But we love the opportunity to collaborate with others who have those skills and knowledge to get a project to its final phase successfully.

How to Choose Your Team Interview first. Look for people with whom you get along and whose values you agree with. When they talk about how they will approach your project, it makes sense to you. Look at the team member’s website for examples of their work. Does it resonate with you? Does their work fit with the result you are hoping to achieve? When you get to your “finalists,” ask for a couple of references. The references you receive should be closely aligned with your own type of project. For example, if you are doing a remodel, talk to other homeowners who have done similar remodels in scope and size.


What Makes a Building Project Go Smoothly  A well-documented set of drawings. Contractors love highly specific and drawn out plans. The more accurate and precise, the better. This includes project scale, fixtures and finishes.

Smart and timely decisions on fixtures, finishes and other details. It's best if the clients choose everything up front, and do it in a timely manner so the contractor has what is needed to get started. A solid, but flexible budget. While the budget should be clearly laid out, there needs to be some built-in flexibility to compensate for unforeseen circumstances. For instance, discovering noncompliant structural issues, conditions that need be abated—such as mold or asbestos—or unexpected construction modalities that need resolving before the project can move forward. Changing course during the process. While clients can and do change plans mid-project, just be aware that changing a design in any way will ultimately increase the cost.

Marin Home Resource Guide


Once You Have Your Dream Team in Place It may sound obvious, but make sure that you are working together, cohesively, right from the start. Doing this will alleviate potential obstacles down the line. All team members should have regular meetings with everyone involved, especially at the beginning of a project, to discuss the project and how they will work together for the duration. Ask your team to provide a clear project schedule with very specific, defined milestones, including your own tasks and deadlines as the client. For example, the construction management company will need you to pick materials by a certain date so that they can be ordered on time. Ideally, the entire workflow for all involved parties is contained in one cohesive document and managed by your contractor. Define your budget up front with your dream team members. Ask what each member can do based on what you can realistically spend. A common misconception is that the construction will eat up your budget, but your contractor can work collaboratively to either prevent that, or meet the budget goal while also satisfying the needs of the project.

Tips to Make Your Dream Home Build Go Smoothly Establish trust with your team. Things can move quickly in the Bay Area, so trusting that your team can collaborate together and get it done is critical, as well as believing your team members have your best interest in mind when making decisions. It can be easy to get caught up in the emotional side of a project; after all, this is your home. While you will be involved, remember you have hired professionals for a reason. Try not to rush into the construction phase without first realizing how much is involved before any ground is broken or major deconstruction or demolition begins. Projects can go awry when the construction team is not involved with that first step. Take advantage of the ‘pre-construction’ phase to feel out your contractor more extensively and get into a nice rhythm before breaking ground. Remember, you are not required to stick with the same contractor for the project’s entirety.

A well founded and reasonable next step for building your dream home or moving ahead with your dream remodel is to access and review the best resources available to you.

Solar Power To The Rescue

Marin Home Resource Guide


IT’S FIRE SEASON IN CA: SOLAR POWER TO THE RESCUE Wildfire season in California is no longer a what-if, it is now a when-will-it-happen. Along with the certainty of wildfire season is the inevitability of power outages, including planned shutoffs designed to protect citizens from unexpected and potentially dangerous blazes.

Contributors: Phil Alwitt, SolarCraft Elliott Jessup, Symmetric Energy Jason Hamilton, Earthwise Energy Solutions

Many homeowners may not realize how much of an advantage a solar powered home can have during a power outage, especially if it is properly set up at installation. Three local experts weigh in. Marin Home Resource Guide: How can solar power work in the event of a PSPS, or public safety planned shutoff? Elliott Jessup, Symmetric Energy: Solar power only works during a PSPS event if the system is designed to incorporate battery storage. With battery storage, the system can go into “island” mode, allowing you to access solar power through the battery. Jason Hamilton, Earthwise Energy Solutions: In fact, solar power systems without energy storage are mandated by electric code to shut themselves down in the event of a grid outage as a safety precaution to grid lineman. Phil Alwitt, SolarCraft: Aside from what we have today, there a number of renewable energy projects in the works that will come in handy during local power shutoffs and outages. For instance, future solar inverters, which are not yet available, will allow electricity to be used while the sun is shining and be instrumental during power shutdowns.


Solar Power To The Rescue

MHRG: How does battery backup work when combined with solar power? JH: The backup system consists of a battery, an auto transfer switch, meters, and load centers. Whether designed to back up only the critical loads of a home, or the entire home, a combined solar power plus battery storage system can detect a grid outage event and automatically transfer electric loads to the solar charged battery. EJ: It makes the most functional and financial sense to install solar and a battery backup system together. The solar panels will recharge the battery as long as the sun is shining. PA: Keep in mind batteries have a limited capacity, so during an outage, homeowners can extend battery life by turning off or limiting use of appliances and restricting the use of home systems, such as air conditioning. EJ: Also, battery storage is not just for backup, it can provide needed extra power to a home during peak use hours too. MHRG: What are advantages of using solar power vs. a generator in the event of a power outage? PA: Solar power paired with a grid-tied battery storage system offers a seamless transition to battery power—so seamless, in fact, that customers do not know an outage has occurred. While residential generators offer continuous power if fuel is available, they are noisy and require regular maintenance to ensure they will function when needed. MHRG: In general, what should customers know about switching to solar power for their homes? EJ: Three basics: solar provides resilience against local utility company reliance, it saves money over time, and it is better for the environment.


Marin Home Resource Guide


PA: It is important to hire an experienced solar contractor and not just any solar company—many companies are more marketing-focused than customer centric. Make sure to examine the company’s longevity in the solar industry and its ability to quickly respond to issues. JH: The 25-year lifespan of an average Marin residential solar power system will produce the electrical equivalent of planting 3,742 trees, taking 30.41 vehicles off the road and avoiding the consumption of 339.42 barrels of oil. MHRG: Anything else we should know about solar power and outages? JH: In addition to rate increases, utilities are proving to be a less reliable source of energy. Not only has solar decreased in cost since it was invented more than 60 years ago, but it is also proven to be an effective and steadfast source of clean energy. PA: Solar is a wonderful, clean, and quiet way to save the planet—and when combined with batteries, will help you keep the lights on during the next power outage.

Roof Maintenance

Marin Home Resource Guide


ROOF MAINTENANCE Your roof is one of the largest parts of your house, protecting your entire home from heavy rains, strong gusts of wind, the sun’s heat and other weather hazards. This makes it vulnerable and prone to a lot of wear and tear. Contributor: Sara Lopez McLeran Roofing

WINTER Ice blockages are the main concern in winter. 90 percent of all emergency leak calls take place between December and February each year. • If you have a flat or low sloping roof, check it after each big rainstorm, making sure your drains are debrisfree and water can pass through. • Visually check your roof after high winds. Remove any tree limbs and other debris; inspect surfaces for defects. Check for shingles that have come loose or blown off.

SPRING Warmer days signal it is time to do another thorough roof inspection. Use the same Fall checklist, but also: • Inspect the interior of your home for visible signs of leakage in ceilings and attic space. Peeling paint, black mold spots and water stains are possible indicators of a roof leak. • Assess the overall health and serviceable life of your roof, especially if it is more than 15 years old.

SUMMER Many people tend to think about their roofs only when something happens, such as a water leak or hail damage, but taking care of your roof on a seasonal basis can prolong its life. The average lifespan of a roof is 15 to 30 years, but an unchecked roof can deteriorate in a shorter span of time. Here is a checklist of seasonal roof care tasks. Always enlist the help of a qualified and licensed professional, when needed.

FALL Fall is the best time to do a full inspection of your roof and take care of any repairs that might be needed before the rainy season.

Clear debris from gutters, downspouts, and drains. Inspect gutters for repairs needed at seams and tighten up brackets. Check shingles for damage. Hip and ridge shingles are more susceptible to wind damage, so pay special attention to these. Check for cracks in the chimney mortar and reseal with caulking. Brick chimneys are porous and should be water sealed every 6 to 7 years. Cut back overhanging trees and bushes to prevent damage to the roof surface and gutters. This also helps to prevent unwanted animals from accessing your roof.

Since you have been taking care of your roof all year long, you can: • Check for any signs of wear and damage to the shingles, gutters, soffit, fascia, flashing, chimney, and vents. If you have skylights, have these inspected by a skylight specialist. Have solar panels inspected by a solar specialist. • Summer is also an excellent time to schedule repairs from a local licensed professional, if needed.

Remodel Timing

Marin Home Resource Guide


Contributor: Alisa Hoffman Design Set Match

HOW LONG WILL MY REMODEL TAKE? A LOOK AT THE NEW REALITY. For more than a year, the San Francisco Bay Area sheltered in place, with stringent safety requirements lasting longer than most of the nation and even most of California. We have been secluded with our families, our children in online classrooms, and sitting only a few feet apart from each other during virtual work meetings. We talk in quiet voices with our sound-canceling headphones, and still, we interfere with each other.


Remodel Timing

Marin Home Resource Guide

Seeking escape and a little personal space, we begin daydreaming about reimagined spaces within our homes. Open floor plan designs, which have been highly desirable for the past 20 years, suddenly seem far less attractive and practical. We crave separation, but still want the balance of daylight reaching into every area of our home. As we work on our devices at the kitchen table, video conference in our bedrooms, and continue to feel trapped in spaces that are falling apart and are dated, inefficient, and have cluttered countertops, we reach out to remodelers to wave their magic wands and solve our work-fromhome woes.

wanting to work with their hands and create with the skill of a carpenter.

Since the summer of 2020, the remodeling process has become a bit of a thorny mess. First, there is a backlog, dating back to when building departments and residential contractors were completely shut down from all new inquires, submittals, and in-home construction for several months. Building supplies have been scarce or completely unavailable, and when they finally returned to shelves, the prices were higher. Remodelers and construction businesses are now booked out weeks, months, or maybe even a year in advance. There is a shortage of trained remodeling professionals, with fewer younger people

Once you select your remodeling team, come up with a detailed plan and timeline, but keep it realistic. Your plan should include the following elements: • Schematic Design (approximately 4 weeks) • Design Development (between 4 to 10 weeks) • Pre-Construction (up to 6 weeks) • Materials Coordination (between 4 to 10 weeks) • Construction Administration and Permitting (anywhere from 6 to 20 weeks, including weekly meetings)


How do we find harmony with our need for more or better space and continue to live, work, and school together? It can be tricky, but it is not impossible. With some persistence, planning and a whole lot of patience, your dreams of a remodel that fits your new reality can come true. Start by making initial contact with several licensed remodelers, designers, and/or architects that catch your eye and set up your consultations. This process can take up to two weeks, depending on schedules.


Giving your project a longer leash to be completed will help keep you from feeling frustrated when things do not go exactly as planned. Keep in mind, even the big box stores and online retailers are out of stock of certain items and may not be able to promise a delivery date. Account for extended lead times for all stages of the remodel. Many vendors are backed up on projects. For example, the lead time for cabinet companies has jumped from 8 to 10 weeks to 18 to 20 weeks. Keep in mind that many building departments are still backlogged and working through multiple requests. They are human too, just like us. Be flexible with plans and decisions. If the materials you desire are on backorder, decide if you can wait for them, or compromise and choose something more readily available.

2021 Trends And Beyond


Marin Home Resource Guide


If 2020’s grave lessons taught businesses anything, it’s that they need to adapt nimbly and quickly to tidal waves of unexpected change. The residential construction industry is moving optimistically toward re-emergence and growth, but is also witnessing a renaissance of workflows, creating new ways of retaining and developing talent and adopting client-centric technology. In 2021 and beyond, companies will not be able to rely solely on their size or years in the industry for their success. Instead, success will require groundbreaking thinking and embracing the following trends within the construction industry.

1. Expansion of Remote Technology Tools To maintain relevance and client satisfaction, firms can no longer put off adopting new technology solutions. These technologies include remote, real-time tracking on projects, virtual meetings for efficient and concise communication, and use of robotics and drones for aerial insight of job sites.

Avichai Hazan, Green Bay Remodeling

2. Upswing in Use of Photorealistic 3D Designs Advanced design technology was a popular industry trend before COVID-19, and this will only continue to grow. Photorealistic 3D designs are rendered via the same professional software used for making movies, which offers images of how the house will look when finished. It offers clients a valuable tool to make better decisions while eliminating common and costly mistakes.

3. Greater Demand for Multi-Use Structures When most of the workforce began to work from home in 2020, it created a domino effect in terms of uptick for residential remodelers. When homeowners started spending more time in their homes, areas of their lives began to overlap. Suddenly, they needed office space or makeshift learning areas, leading many homeowners to recognize an ongoing need to improve the overall functionality of their living quarters while keeping them visually and aesthetically pleasing.


4. Increased Adoption of Augmented Reality By the end of this decade, it is projected that construction firms will spend more than $1.2 trillion on augmented reality, up from about $37 billion in 2019. Augmented reality is an interactive experience of a realworld environment (like virtual reality) but enhanced with computer generated information. It has immense potential in the construction industry, including fast and affordable simulation of projects in a surrounding environment, automated building measurement and safety training simulations. It also enables construction companies to give clients a more predictable and tangible look at their projects in a rapidly iterative, responsive, and most of all, safe, and contact-free manner.

5. A Jump in Energy-Efficient Home Design and Energy Storage Ongoing shifts in governmental regulations around residential construction is requiring home designers to focus more and more on ultraefficient home designs. The best new and remodeled homes combine state-of-the-art, energyefficient construction, appliances, and lighting. These designs include components of renewable energy & storage, passive solar heating, and water efficient landscaping. A related trend that continues to see tremendous growth is home energy storage, the practice of capturing produced energy for use at a later time, most often through a solar power system with a battery backup component.

Home Wellness

Marin Home Resource Guide

A GUIDE TO KEEPING YOUR HOME RENOVATION PROJECT HEALTHY AND GREEN One of the primary reasons people love living in Marin County is the accessibility they have to vast swaths of preserved open space and pure, raw nature. Yet, all that protected, unfettered land means that 90 percent of building projects in Marin involve either renovation or rebuilding versus new construction. Without careful consideration and pre-planning, renovations and rebuilds can result in an unhealthy impact, both within home interiors as well as to the natural world. Three Marin-based design and construction experts share their strategies for executing projects that share a commitment to sustainability and promote a healthy living atmosphere.


Contributors: Ashlee Murphree, Good Bones Design Build Nicole Tai, GreenLynx Heather Wright Foye, Wright Architecture


Educate Yourself About Integrating Passive House Principles Ashlee Murphree, Good Bones Design Build The newest building science has moved toward Passive House principles that promote sustainability, durability and comfort through creating air-tight, well-insulated structures. Simply put, Passive Houses are ones that maintain an environment sealed in a way that is not only healthier and cleaner, but also boast up to 90% lower energy bills for a more eco-friendly home. That said, homeowners and builders must also be educated on avoiding new problems from indoor contaminants such as pathogens, VOCs and mold, and how to handle potential toxins from noxious building materials or unknown moisture sources. A remodeling project is the perfect opportunity to invest in those details which influence the long-term wellness and integrity of a home and its inhabitants. That’s why, before beginning a project, it’s important for homeowners to educate themselves about Passive House design and seek out professionals who understand building science, moisture management and mechanical ventilation. With a mantra of build tight, ventilate right, a properly detailed shell with the right ventilation and filtration systems is essential to healthy buildings, healthy people and a healthy ecosystem. Every step in the process matters, and the first step always begins with education.


Marin Home Resource Guide



Utilize Descontruction for a Healthier, Greener Project Nicole Tai, GreenLynx The first crew to work on a remodeling or rebuilding project should be a deconstruction team. Studies show that deconstruction—the process of “unbuilding” a house or room—substantially reduces the release of lead and other toxins into the air or the soil at the building site. Deconstruction crews will carefully remove fixtures such as cabinets and lighting during a remodel, and reclaimable lumber, decking, and siding during full teardowns—all of which result in a much cleaner and healthier job site. On the sustainability front, deconstruction prevents building materials from going to the landfill by giving them a second life within the community. The process can yield affordable high end materials for seniors and low-income people looking to refresh their space on tight budgets. It can also preserve one-of-kind historic materials and lumber while providing a better option than cheap material substitutions with short lifespans. Lastly, reclaimed materials conserve their embodied energy, sequestering carbon to help prevent greenhouse gas emissions. To successfully incorporate reuse into your project, involve the deconstruction company early on in the process, and make sure that your general contractor is on board too.


Assess and Preserve Your Home’s Distinctive Details Heather Wright Foye, Wright Architecture Architects think about the character of a building as one of its vital signs. Most architects strive to make homes long lasting, full of personality and functional in a modern world. Yet, a home that embraces the past, present and the future is much more interesting and sustainable than one that simply reflects the trends of the time. Before remodeling, take stock of what is already there and identify what’s beautiful and meaningful. Is it the stained-glass windows, midcentury details or a rustic hearth? Decide what is worth keeping first, and how it can be integrated into updated systems and architectural elements. As a society, the most sustainable step we can take is to keep what we like, and be intentional with what we replace. If more of us take this approach, we could not only add richness to our built environments, but also help alter the throw-away culture so pervasive in our world.

LET US CONSTRUCT THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME FOR YOU With over 38 years of experience handling all types of construction projects, from startup contracting through claims and disputes, Kate Warner Construction Lawyers has built solid relationships with top industry experts and can assemble a targeted team to help you get results. Out-of-the-box solutions, including under-utilized project management systems and dispute resolution options, save you time and money, deliver successful outcomes and help preserve your important business relationships.


Our new house came with glowing promises, but those were shattered immediately when we were sued by one of their unpaid suppliers. KWCL not only got us out of that AND got all our expenses and fees paid, but, when defects began appearing, KWCL assembled a credible and practical team of experts that was able to find all the buried and serious shortcuts and defects. KWCL got us a recovery that paid for it.”

KWCL's team has humor, tenacity, and industry insights that got us to a place we don't think any other firm could have. KWCL chased the Developer's team over every hurdle they dodged behind (including serious and arcane damage theories and insurance coverage!), and got them to pay for ALL our repairs and loss of use, and all our litigation expenses. KWCL then even worked with our repair team to assure they got it right.”

KWCL helped our Construction Co. defend several devastating claims and salvage problem projects; then after saving our business, guided us on improving our practices so that won’t happen again. Now we start every project with a KWCL ‘check-in’ and have happy customers as a result.”
