Risk Management, Construction Defect and Dispute Resolution

Risk Management, Construction Defect and Dispute Resolution are inseparable in today’s construction.  e-Builts provides the assurance that you’ve done all you can. 

Construction Risk Management is more necessary than ever before.  Construction Defect claims are with us to stay.  No matter the attention to Risk Management – there will be questions and potential problems.  Dispute resolution is aided when all parties can review high resolution photographs that are accurate, easy to find and dated.

e-Builts construction photography has been used by contractors, owners, and 3rd party inspectors to verify As Built conditions.  There is no arguing with a photograph – Construction Defects, if any, can be seen, and Dispute Resolution takes a faster, less acrimonious and most importantly less costly path.  Risk Management requires attention to detail.  E-Builts provide that attention to detail.

Was the  blocking installed per structural requirements? Did an MEP trade penetrate a structural member without approval?  Is the shear screw (or nailing) pattern per the engineer’s requirements?  Was the fire-caulking installed at that above ceiling penetration?  What height off floor is the backing for the future cabinetry?


The questions can fill volumes and lead to litigation….expensive litigation.

Construction Defect Claims have appeared on the radar of ownership groups, General Contractors, Sub-Contractors, architects, engineers, lawyers, insurance companies, etc.  The cost of defense against such a claim is daunting.  The cost to bring about the claim is also daunting.  The e-Builts construction photography interface is an easy to use software that works for all parties involved in a project.  The architect, engineer, construction manager, builder, sub-contractor and ultimately facilities manager can all access the same information in an easy to use, two dimensional reader that provides information that only a photograph can show.  Dispute Resolution becomes much more straightforward.

Construction Defect Claims require that the defect be provable.  E-Builts doesn’t have an agenda.  We photograph (or scan) the condition as it is built.  That photograph, easy to find, but one or more, of a cast of thousands then becomes the basis to prove, or disprove a construction defect claim.  Dispute Resolution is the goal and we are here to help.

e-Builts Construction Photographs provide straightforward Dispute Resolution of Construction Defect Claims.  e-Builts assures your risk management is getting the proper attention.
