Latest Update on Colorado’s Six-Year Statute of Repose for Construction Defect Cases

On October 20, 2016, the deadline to petition certiorari to the Colorado Court of Appeals passed, meaning that the ruling in Sierra Pacific v. Bradbury stands. This effectively confirms that Colorado’s six-year statute of repose begins once a subcontractor’s scope of work is substantially complete, irrespective of the status of the overall project. This decision will significantly impact developers, general contractors and subcontractors in any case where the timing of defect claims is at or near the expiration of the statute of repose.
