Nuclear Industry Expert in Facility Construction
A nuclear industry expert experienced in facility construction was needed for a case alleging improper competitive conduct and tortuous interference. The plaintiff was a real estate development company which purchased a piece of property for commercial development. The property included a partially constructed but abandoned nuclear power facility. The property was assessed by an independent nuclear engineering firm who later revised the appraisal downward. The plaintiff alleged the defendant, the Fortune 500 energy company which purchased the property for the nuclear power facility, had engaged in tortuous interference to eliminate competing bids and drive its price down.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to provide a nuclear industry expert with knowledge of the cost and construction of nuclear power facilities. The expert was asked to provide property valuation services of the property, specifically to an energy company based on partially constructed facility elements such as tunnels, special grading, and access to a specified volume of water.
