Trial success for Construction + Engineering Group
On January 14th, the Honourable Mr. Justice Weatherill delivered his Reasons for Judgment in Kayne v. The Owners, Strata Plan LMS 2374, 2013 BCSC 51. Christopher Hirst and Emily Stock of our Construction + Engineering practice successfully defended a large engineering firm on allegations relating to building envelope consulting services at a townhome complex. The court had “no hesitation” in finding that the engineering firm met the requisite standard of care of a building envelope consultant. In its determination, the court accepted the legal arguments made by Chris and Emily, and found them “fatal” to the Plaintiffs’ arguments of causation, nuisance, and damages. The action was dismissed in full, with costs to the Defendants. To read the Reasons for Judgment please click here.
