The measured mile approach of evaluating construction delay claims compares productivity during periods of a project that have been adversely impacted to the productivity levels during periods that were not impacted, or that were unhindered. This unimpacted or unhindered period of performance is referred to as the “Measured Mile”, which is used as the baseline to predict what the contractor’s cost performance should-have-been, or would-have-been.

In this document, environmental expert, Michael D. Klein, P.E., CHMM, provides an introductory lesson on the actions used by industry to control hazardous materials and safeguard human and environmental health.
Lead has been regarded as a toxic substance since the time of the Romans. It is ubiquitous in our environment, and its toxic properties have been written about for centuries. Exposure to lead is known to produce a spectrum of injury, particularly in children, yet society continues to struggle with its negative impacts on human health.
In this article, Environmental Expert, Michael Klein, P.E. provides an overview of why lead has become ubiquitous in modern society. Within the context of municipal water systems, he discusses the steps that are being taken to safeguard human health from toxic lead exposures.
With this slide deck, Michael Klein provided a Continuing Professional Education course on lockout tagout procedures.
The forensic investigation of an industrial explosion and fire can often reliably determine causation and liability by following the trail of chemical compounds, industrial processes, and engineering controls [that were in place]. In this webinar video, Michael Klein provides an overview of the hazards, processes, procedures, training, and compliance measures that figure prominently in explosion and fire cases.
Attendees will learn how and why explosions occur; regulations and industry standards that are intended to mitigate the hazards and risks; and where to start when facing a new case or insurance claim.
In this presentation delivered to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Michael D. Klein, P.E., CHMM, discusses fracking, with a focus on methods, regulations, and environmental impacts.
In this article, civil engineer, Michael D. Klein, P.E., CHMM, provides an introduction to the most widely accepted method for evaluating project delay/disruption claims, the Critical Path Method (CPM).
In this presentation Michael Klein, P.E., CHMM outlined the requirements of a sampling plan and Quality Assurance/Quality Control procedures that must accompany sampling and/or testing of materials in environmental disputes.
