There was an explosion of commercial building construction in Colorado from 2003 to 2008. While many attorneys only consider construction defects in residential property, Hearn & Fleener also specializes in representing commercial property owners.
Damages to commercial buildings usually result from inadequate and improper design and construction. These claims are dealt with similarly to residential construction defect claims. Construction defects typically include cracking of stucco, water intrusion through the roofs and windows, front doors that don’t properly open and close, slabs moving, concrete sidewalks heaving and settling, and failing asphalt parking areas.
Commercial buildings include the following:
- Office Buildings
- Industrial/Warehouse Property
- Medical Centers
- Retail Malls
- Retail Stores
- Mixed Use Commercial and Residential Space
