We provide expert assessments and expert reports relating to construction operations. We analyse delay and disruption events, evaluate the impact on the process and calculate extension of time.

If highly complex facts meet immense costs and a deadlock in negotiations, the only way to come into your own may be a well-founded and detailed analysis, including detailed evidence and proof of causes, technical effects and scheduling and financial consequences. Comprehensive preparation and presentation are crucial in this context.

This is exactly what we can do, i.e. by providing:

  • Contract analysis and interpretation of the technical details of a contract
  • Designing object oriented and work breakdown project structures
  • Inspection of contract deadlines and schedules
  • Quality control of existing schedules, including predecessor-successor relationships
  • Project performance control, delay analysis and reconstruction of actual construction operations
  • Identification and analysis of performance disruption or loss of productivity
  • Separation of performance disruption in view of cause and causation
  • Updating and calculation of schedules, critical path analysis, calculation of extension of time and assessment of excusable delays by recognised methods (impacted as-planned, as-planned vs. as-built, collapsed as-built and time impact method)
  • Cost assessment of performance disruption or loss of productivity
  • Consultation with your legal advisers
  • Documentation and compilation of records, claims preparation and dispute management
  • Documentation of the outcomes and compilation of records
  • Presentation and negotiation
