Expert in Moisture and Mold Building Forensics and HVAC and Building Envelope Failures
Mr. DuBose brings over 25 years of experience in building forensics, with a focus on failures related to mold and moisture issues. His knowledge of the design and construction process and his numerous publications and lectures in the industry (including for EPA/ASHRAE, NCARB, and Disney) have positioned him as an expert who can speak to both the nuances of moisture failures, as well as to the technical side of the design and construction and the pitfalls that occur when moisture is introduced into a space.
Mr. DuBose has been retained by domestic and global projects and clients who have needed assistance with some of the most complicated building failures in the world including such recognized companies as Disney (50+ projects), Fairmont Raffles Hotels International Southeast Asia (2,000+rooms), NYU Campus Abu Dhabi ($1B in construction), Superdome post Katrina Claim ($200MM+ claim), 1.2 Million SF Orlando VA Medical Complex, the $60MM Hilton Hawaiian Village Mold problem and the Martin County Courthouse which is one of the first major mold and moisture related building failures in the country.
Mr. DuBose has provided expert witness services for clients pursuing and defending claims related to mold and moisture design deficiencies, construction defects, a combination of the design and construction defects, property/casualty and builders risk claims, and subrogation efforts. These matters have included contractor builder’s risk claim for a $9 Million ductwork mold problem, a $15 Million developer claim against the contractor for a 52 story building moisture problem, contractor claim against subcontractors for an $18 Million water intrusion failure in a 12 building apartment complex, $100+ Million hotel building envelope and HVAC system moisture failure in Southeast Asia, and Martin County $24.5 Million claim against the contractor for a moisture and mold problem in a Courthouse and Constitutional Office Building.
