Construction & Project Management

Like many in the business of reconstruction or project management we handle all size and manner of loss and projects. Whether the task is to oversee the dry out, cleanup, restoration and claim resolution of a loss resulting from a failed angle stop, a large water or fire loss that impacted the common area and many units, we are here to help you navigate the process. The same can be said for reconstruction or restoration projects such as a building wide window replacement, painting, new roof, replacing plumbing or electrical wiring, addressing concrete spalling, waterproofing, dry rot or something else. Whatever your need, Pinnacle is here for you.

What distinguishes Pinnacle from most of our peers is our expertise in identifying what failed. Once the source of a loss is determined we are able to identify which party was responsible to maintain that which failed or caused the loss through their action. When it comes to insurance, making these determinations quickly assures that the correct party and insurance company are put on notice of their responsibility to cover the loss. As we see it, we owe a fiduciary duty to our client to see that they and their insurer only pay for losses that are attributable to them. Unlike some management companies, we do not make our job easier by advising a board of directors, the property owner or their managers, that all losses are theirs. Our belief that we have a fiduciary duty to you means that we always tender claims to the responsible party and their carrier.

We are also here to help you with the planning and execution of your next big improvement or repair project. Such improvements might include upgrading the buildings main electric panel, supply or drain lines, issues with foundation or making a deep dive into the reserve study.
If construction defect or decades of deferred maintenance are the problem at your property, we are here to help you with the planning and execution of its deconstruction and restoration. Not only with the project but with answering questions of the membership who likely face a large special assessment. We can also guide the association through the loan process if the cost of repair or restoration necessitates such.

Insurance Claim Resolution

The principal of Pinnacle has more than twenty-years of experience working as both an Insurance Agent and a Claims Adjuster. This experience provides clients of Ascendant and other management firms with a distinct advantage in determining what failed which determines who is liable. Making such determinations quickly assures that the correct party and insurer are timely noticed of their liability. In hiring Ascendant you are able to engage the services of Pinnacle Reconstruction & Project Management. The importance of this is that both Ascendant and Pinnacle share a strong belief that the association, not others, are the client to whom we owe a fiduciary duty to see that the association is made financially whole. Whether by your insurer or by the party who was negligent and their insurance company. We see no reason that our mutual client should be saddled with losses caused by others.

As your advocate, Pinnacle will pursue the rightful party in order to protect the association from receiving significant increases in premium or deductible. And, from the risk of having their policy non-renewed or cancelled outright due to frequency or volume of claims. Through this approach we successfully collected more than $1,000,000 on behalf of associations in 2019 from the insurers of unit owners, tenants and vendors who had been deemed responsible for the underlying loss.
