Building the Foundation
When it opened in 2015, a multi-million dollar museum was designed as a foundation for a lifelong love of learning. The state-of-the-art multi-story museum has drawn national attention for its interactive exhibits and creative learning programs.
Questions Arise After Opening
But soon after its opening, construction and design issues began to surface at the donor- and benefactor-supported project. Among the concerns were defective roofing and heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems that compromised the building’s capacity to meet the needs for the 65,000-square-foot space.
Getting Past Delay Tactics
Insurance companies and contractors are notorious for delaying, rejecting or underfunding claims like these, and this case was no different. The museum called on the Gravely team after the general contractor and insurance carriers failed to adequately address and correct the problems. Like many cases of this type, a lawsuit is often required to get the attention of the defendants and bring them to the table to discuss meaningful actions.
The Gravely team is actively prosecuting this litigation, and the matter is ongoing.
