Exclusive: Statement From Tishman Re: Mandarin Oriental & Veer

In response to our post about possible construction flaws at Mandarin Oriental and Veer, Tishman Construction (via MGM Mirage) has issued a statement to us in response to Theometrics' case study.

Clarification from Tishman Construction Corporation of Nevada:

Theometrics' statements made in its "case study" about the structural competency of Veer and Mandarin Oriental are wholly untrue.

There were no structural deficiencies identified as a result of Theometrics' survey work, and it was not within the scope of Theometrics' contract to determine whether work was performed satisfactorily or not.

Theometrics' scope of work included verifying existing conditions, including levelness, plumbness and topographical surveying. Tishman Construction Corporation of Nevada made no structural repairs as a result of the surveys or otherwise.

Theometrics has since removed the erroneous "case study" from its website and ceased all further distribution of the document.



Comments & Discussion:

Glad everything was clarified.

I bet the lawyers on both sides had fun with this one.

Chuck you are such a troublemaker.........

Daaaaaaamn.. they got SERVED.

I guess someone's still off of MGM Mirage's Christmas Card list......

yes. someone got served and thankfully it wasn't us. the voice on the other end of the mgm mirage hotline was very very nice and even wished me a speedy recovery from the voice degrading flu i've been battling.

my best guess is that they want to squash this before it ends up a part of the real estate deal lawsuits that have been springing up. is there more to the story? probably. will a mole at theometrics come out of the woodwork to tell us that mgm is lying and that they have the data to prove that veer and mandarin oriental are actually cockeyed?
