Industries we work in.
Roads, Bridges, Overpasses, & Detours. Road, Highway and Rail construction projects are plagued by unanticipated conditions which cause disruption, lead to changes in scope, and cause cost overruns. Lump-sum projects with a fixed completion date affected by these are more susceptible to claims than projects based on the schedule of rates with a more flexible construction schedule.
Electrical, Windfarms, & Solar. Wind farm projects have a lot in common with IKEA furniture, as turbines come in flatpacks consisting of tower, turbine, blades, and container with components. We dealt with issues ranging from unsuitable access roads, damaged blades, incorrect componentry, outdated manuals, and failure to obtain AEMO approvals (which we assisted with). We also served as expert witnesses in cost disputes.
Process Plants. Full life cycle. From long-lead procurement items and assistance in sourcing design and performance guarantees to preparation of submissions to secure board approval and project finance. We also dealt with claims for design liability insurance, plant performance below specification, incomplete work, and rework.

We also develop ECI and overall project delivery contracting strategies.
