Each stage of our technical analysis is meticulously performed, from initial assessment and critical issues evaluation to expert report preparation and final dispute resolution.

Claims Consulting

At CPMI, untangling complicated construction claims is our specialty.

Using proven techniques, such as Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling, we identify the relationship between events and their impacts on a project, then apportion responsibility for delays, disruption, and inefficiency. We thoroughly evaluate all technical, scheduling, cost, quality, and other critical issues; develop dispute resolution strategies; assist in settlement negotiations, mediation, or arbitration; and provide concise, credible expert witness testimony should the case go to trial. Our unique understanding of the design/construction and litigation processes allows us to assist clients in successfully resolving even the toughest contract disputes.
