Since 2005, consultation has been provided in product performance litigation for schools in New Jersey (plywood) and Arkansas (lumber) as well as hospitals and commercial structures in South Carolina (lumber). For litigation support, McIntyre Associates conducts site investigations, reviews appropriate reports, depositions and documents by others and renders reports. McIntyre Associates has also published a number of papers on fire retardant issues including an encyclopedia article and was an active participant in the strength degradation litigation in the early 1990’s.
