Unmasking the Layers: A Journey Through a Masonry Reclad Litigation Case Study

A masonry cavity wall cladding system was installed at an office facility in 2012. Seven years later, the owner reported stone dislodging. This case study examines the background, issues, evidence, decision points, and legal analysis resulting in a reclad of the facility. This study highlights the importance of documentation, correspondence between parties, and supporting the claims for a Plaintiff-party, while facilitating continuous use of the facility, without interruption. A concise overview will be provided from the prospectives of the Plaintiff representative Engineer and Attorney offering insight into the complexities and challenges associated with a full building masonry reclad litigation case.


1. Explore the issues and claims involved in a masonry cavity wall cladding system.

2. Discuss legal pitfalls, strategies, and decision points that require consideration and timely action.

3. Explain the need for a focused systematic approach in order to minimize cost, and maximize efficiency, safety, and recovery of damages.

4. Relate the importance of evidence documentation in supporting claims.

5. Describe the roles of the engineer and attorney in a construction defects case in relation to a building that poses life-safety risks and requires massive repair while remaining continuously in use.
