“Scheduling Tactics, Delays and Time Extensions, Associated Builders and Contractors of Eastern Pennsylvania, Allentown, PA, March 11 2020.

Project Highlights

Crankshaft Forging Complex, Pennsylvania – Represented owner in analysis of Foundation contractor’s delay and disruption claim totaling $5.7M on the construction of a reinforced concrete foundation for a state-of-the-art forging press. The unique foundation was constructed to bear forces from a horizontal multi-direction press capable of turning steel bar stock into crankshafts for marine uses. Performed detailed delay and issue analysis related to the claimed impacts, including foundation design delay and changed conditions.  Assisted in preparation of a mediation report with time impact analyses graphics. The dispute was settled in mediation.

Vertical Lift Bridge, Massachusetts – Assisted in preparation of independent assessment of schedule delays and impacts in connection with steel fabricator’s work on a $245M vertical lift bridge replacement project. The steel fabricator submitted a $13M REA for compensable changes incurred during detailing, fabrication, pain, and shipping of steel for the project, while the DB entity alleged the fabricator was responsible for up to $17M in damages. Analyzed contemporaneous project schedules, the DB entity’s Time Entitlement Analysis, and the project record to determine causes of delay, including an inadequate baseline schedule, incomplete design submittals, and concurrent delay events unrelated to the fabricator’s work. Assisted in preparation of a comprehensive expert report and associated graphics. The matter is still ongoing.

High Rise, Pennsylvania – Performed analysis of a $42M claim against structural designer for direct and consequential damages incurred because of delays resulting from a design error. The 47-story, one-million-square-foot tower features offices, luxury residential units and corporate suites, and street-level amenities and retail. The building’s design includes a structural transfer from the base of the steel office structure to the upper concrete residential component. Evaluated claim against contemporaneous project schedules and project record to determine merit of individual claim items.
