A Construction Consulting Services Company
Dispute Resolution and Construction Claims
In the unfortunate situations when a project completes later than planned or requires an acceleration effort to overcome delay events, we apply our trial-tested methodology to quickly dissect the project record, identify the significant issues and offer an accurate assessment of the nature of the delays. Our findings are based on facts derived directly from all elements of the project record and interviews with project personnel. Our meticulous approach to evaluating, organizing and analyzing documents yields an analysis consistent with what actually occurred during the project and accurately reflects the true impact of events.
During the Discovery process for projects that are in litigation, we work closely with the entire legal team. Our personnel have the foresight to know what to look for in the opposition's files, what questions to ask and how to interpret the responses. We also have experience with large volume document cases requiring advanced legal software.
Whether it is a construction claim or an expert report leading to negotiation, mediation, arbitration or court hearings, our unique experience with owners and contractors enables us to prepare intuitive, accurate and cost-effective presentations and reports that thoroughly substantiate our findings.
