Biography

MIKE SCHAEFGEN joined YOUNG & Associates as a Senior Consultant in 2017. Mike has been involved with the commercial construction industry in the capacities of a Professional Estimator and Project Manager as well as field supervisory positions. The majority of his construction experience has been in multi-family and commercial loss mitigation and re-construction. Post-hurricane experience included: commercial office buildings, high rise apartments, and assisted living facilities in several states. As a Consultant, Mike has been called upon to give expert witness testimony relative to the cases assigned. Mike's main focus in construction consulting has been in the capacity of a documentation examiner in construction defect cases. These assignments required the analysis of records concerning a specific project in order to make a determination of the trade(s) responsible for damage as well as the cost for repair. Mike has also developed detailed repair estimates and negotiated agreed upon scopes of work. Other experiences include mold remediation, asbestos abatement, and ADA compliance as well as ADA retro-fit projects.
