CHANGE ORDER ANALYSIS
Changes in the requirements are likely to occur with any construction project. While sometimes necessary, change orders can heavily impact a project’s scope, schedule, and cost. We specialize in reviewing and quantifying change orders.
CONTRACT DEFAULT & TERMINATION
Some construction claims involve contract default or termination due to a party’s failure to meet contractual obligations. Construction default and termination can significantly affect a project, by causing disputes, schedule delays, and productivity loss. We examine the original project contract to validate the role of each party pertaining to the claim.
DAMAGE CALCULATIONS & ASSESSMENTS
Construction damages can result in increased costs, schedule delays, productivity losses, and construction defects. We are well-versed in analyzing and quantifying the damages of construction claims. We perform an analysis to identify any potential impacts, like schedule inefficacies, change orders, productivity losses, and/or contract disputes.
PRODUCTIVITY LOSS ANALYSIS
Labor productivity loss can cause contractual disputes between the owner and contractor. Additional labor costs can play a role in contributing to financial loss. Our experts can analyze the impact of adjustments to labor resources on the construction budget and schedule.
SCHEDULE DELAY, DISRUPTION, & ACCELERATION
Schedule interferences can impact budget and productivity on a construction project. We provide our expertise in schedule delay, disruption, and acceleration to determine effects on schedule and to quantify damages related to a dispute.
