The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will host a webinar on September 17 that will serve as an introduction to construction defects (CD). It also will discuss developments in the CD industry and explore where the industry is headed.

Titled “State of the Construction Defect Industry: What’s the Same and What’s New,” the session will be led by Pete Fowler and Alex Prokop of Pete Fowler Construction Services. They will review the history of the CD industry and offer an understanding of building performance standards, investigation practices and how they relate to CD.

Both Fowler and Prokop have several years of experience in this field and Fowler has been speaking and writing about CD and CD litigation for over 25 years, including a presentation his company gave to the AAMA Western Region Summit in 2011 titled “The Construction Defect Lifecycle.”

“The CD Industry continues to evolve rapidly, so we are back with more updates,” says Fowler. “We offer a high-level overview of the world of construction-defect litigation. Lots of folks have had to deal with this kind of litigation, and it’s best to have a map in hand.”

Registration is now open and free for anyone interested.
