Stan Luhr, founder and President, is a nationally recognized forensic consultant who has been retained on some of the country's largest construction defect claims, spanning nearly three decades.  A licensed general contractor in four states and holder of several inspection credentials, he has worked directly in the construction and inspection industry for 35 years.  His clients include building owners and some of the largest insurance companies, homebuilders, commercial builders, and financial institutions in the country who have retained his services to solve complex building failures, water intrusion, code and negligence claims.  

Mr. Luhr's practical hands-on experience includes residential home building, commercial construction, remodeling, insurance repairs and building inspection services. He started Pacific Property Consultants in 1984 which provided building investigation analysis, diagnostic testing, forensic investigations, quality assurance and third-party inspections.  In 1994, he created the Quality Built® program and became the company's CEO, which he operated alongside his forensic and construction businesses.  The company received three published patents and 14 trade marks on numerous systems and proprietary software he developed in-house using ruggedized field computers. His systems were based on his years of experience with litigation claims, which provided builders with risk management solutions that slashed waste, improved production time and eliminated construction defects before they were built into the product.   After more than 400,000 homes and $9 billion of construction defect savings was achieved under the Quality Built program, he sold the company in 2010 to a Florida-based investor.  In January 2011 he was released from his employment obligations with the new company and is now devoting his full-time energy toward his litigation and claims clientele.  

A nationally known speaker and author, Mr. Luhr has lectured at hundreds of building trade, insurance and legal forums including NAHB, PCBC, Benchmark, Urban Land Institute, EEBA, ACI, IRMI, West Coast Casualty.  He has conducted technical training sessions across the country for clients of AIG, CV-Starr, Lexington, Zurich, Arch, Contractor's Choice and many others.  He remains active in building industry organizations working to improve construction quality and reduce litigation.

He personally has testified in over 100 court trials and dozens of arbitrations in several states.  He has given sworn deposition testimony on more than 500 occasions, including testimony on cases involving home builders, trade contractors, material suppliers, product manufacturers, building inspectors and quality assurance professionals. He has been selected as an independent court-appointed expert on three occasions,   and has served as a neutral mediator on construction claims.  He has served as a judge for NAHB's National Quality Award and the Presidential Malcolm Baldridge Award for Quality.
