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. IKEA furniture and wind farm projects share a lot of similarities. Flatpacks of turbines consist of tower, blades, blades, and a container with components. We dealt with issues such as unsuitable access roads and damaged blades, incorrect components, outdated manuals, and failures to obtain AEMO approvals (which was also our assistance). We also appeared as expert witnesses on cost disputes.
