We are experienced in both the analysis and preparation of construction damages claims, including quantification of damages relating to issues such as: changes in work scope; work package coordination; differing site conditions; project schedule delays; construction defects; adverse weather; contract termination (whether for convenience or default); and, jobsite access constraints.
