La Jolla, California
Plaintiff’s high cost of repair hampered litigation settlement. High-end project with residents that had costly artwork and furnishings. Required skillful interaction to find middle ground between plaintiffs, defense and high-profile residents. Extensive repairs including critical geotechnical, architectural, plumbing and mechanical repairs on a very compact site.
Nautilus was initially retained as a neutral expert, nimbly working with the teams from both sides—forensic architects, plumbing/mechanical and geotechnical experts, cost estimators, lawyers—to develop out-of-the-box, middle-ground repair solutions that were instrumental in getting the litigation settled. Post litigation, Nautilus was hired as the reconstruction contractor prior to bidding the work, which was a testament to the client’s trust in our capabilities. Beyond reconstruction, we created a meticulous work plan that maximized efficiency and minimized the impact on residents.
