2016 AIA Convention

McGovern’s Developer Transition and Construction Defect Attorneys Attended the American Institute of Architects’ 2016 Convention in Philadelphia and Reviewed New Ideas in Software, Materials, Building Systems and Construction Monitoring.

On May 20th Fran McGovern, Damon Kress, Pat McGlone and David Merritt traveled to Philadelphia and attended the American Institute of Architects’ 2016 Convention.

They walked the expo floor and spoke with many of the almost 800 exhibitors.  Among the offerings were design and construction software, cladding systems, window systems, roofing systems etc.  Most of the offerings were cutting edge stuff.  Of particular interest was Earthcam (www.earthcam.net).  Earthcam’s representatives explained how their solutions provide high definition time-lapse video recording of construction and repair projects.  McGovern may use earthcam’s services on future construction defect cases and major repair projects – especially those at high-rises.
