Benjamin Cornelius Presents on Risks of Property Line Construction for Design Professionals


On June 22nd, Benjamin Cornelius, P.E., Partner presented a webinar entitled "Risks of Property Line Construction for Design Professionals," along with construction attorney Kriton Pantelidis of Welby, Brady & Greenblatt, LLP. The program was hosted by the Defense Research Institute.


Incorporating theories of liability and defense and real-world, practical professional solutions from an engineering and legal perspective, the program discussed the risks design professionals face in connection with construction projects involving closely adjoining or attached properties, and how design professionals can protect themselves from a professional angle prior to and during construction.


Susan Wright, Principal at IBI Group - Gruzen Samton, stated: "My colleague and I just watched this webinar, which was very well done. Ben Cornelius did a great job explaining the risks associated with lot line conditions. With NYC increasing in density and sites hard to come by, every site we are working on has complications, which I now understand much better."


"Every time I talk with construction attorney Kriton Pantelidis," said Ben, "I learn something new and valuable about the law that I can apply to my practice of structural engineering. This time was no exception, when I joined Kriton as his co-speaker in DRI's webinar, "Risks of Property Line Construction for Design Professionals." Not only was it a great opportunity to speak with a pro, but also an opportunity to learn!
