Project Highlights

Crankshaft Forging Complex – Represented owner in analysis of Foundation contractor’s delay and disruption claim totaling $5.7million 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 the preparation of a mediation report with time impact analyses graphics. The dispute was settled in mediation.

Vertical Lift Bridge – Assisted in preparation of independent assessment of schedule delays and impacts in connection with steel fabricator’s work on a $245 million vertical lift bridge replacement project. The steel fabricator submitted a $13 million REA for compensable changes incurred during detailing, fabrication, pain, and shipping of steel for the project, while the design-build entity alleged the fabricator was responsible for up to $17 million in damages. Analyzed contemporaneous project schedules, the design-build 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.
