[COLUMBIA, S.C. October 23, 2014] – Collins & Lacy, P.C. is pleased to announce Andrew Cole has been named Vice Chairman of the Home Builders Association of Greater Columbia’s Remodelers Council. He will assume the role in January 2015.
The Remodelers Council of Greater Columbia was formed by members of the HBA who were involved in the home improvement industry. These members realized a need for a specialized council to promote ethical business practices and set quality standards for the remodeling industry in the midlands. The council has been awarded seven national Council Awards for Demonstrating Remodeler Excellence (CADRE) from the National Remodelers Council.
Cole is a shareholder with the firm and a certified circuit court mediator focusing in construction law, as well as defense litigation, and appellate advocacy. He represents general contractors, subcontractors, developers, architects, engineers, and product manufacturers. Cole assists clients in every step of the process including taking part in property inspections associated with liability cases. South Carolina Super Lawyers has named him a Super Lawyer in the area of Construction/Surety.
“I am excited to keep working with and supporting the remodelers through the Council,” said Cole. “Based on my years of experience with my construction litigation practice, I hope to provide input that will allow the HBA Remodelers to focus more on their business of renovating houses and not have to become part-time litigators.”
