People in the construction business know that there is no substitute for experience. No two projects are ever the same, and the dozens of minor issues that are likely to arise in the course of a construction project may not have the same solution every time.

The answer lies in having the experience and knowledge to handle any construction litigation situation.

The case stems from a contract that was awarded to Taisei Construction for the construction of two new buildings at Palo Alto High School. One of the buildings was a state-of-the-art media arts center, while the other was a two-story math and social studies classroom building.
