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. Projects based on a schedule of rates that is more flexible are more vulnerable to claims than those with a fixed completion date for lump-sum projects.
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 We dealt with issues such as unsuitable access roads and damaged blades, incorrect components, outdated manuals, and failures to obtain AEMO approvals (which was also our assistance).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 served as expert witnesses in cost disputes.
