Construction Delay Claims

Construction Delay Claim Experts

The construction experts at Robson Forensic provide efficient and effective assistance in the resolution of complex lost productivity claims.

Delays & Lost Productivity Claims

Construction productivity losses can and often will occur from multiple changes, interference, delays, and/or alterations in the sequence of work. Suspension and acceleration of performance are not uncommon in an industry that survives by fast-tracking scheduling and fast-shifting priorities to meet project milestones.

Evaluation and resolution of lost productivity (disruption and inefficiency) claims can be contentious and costly for both owners and contractors. The construction professionals at Robson Forensic have the experience to efficiently and effectively assist in the resolution of complex lost productivity claims. Our construction professionals include seasoned contractors, engineers, architects, and project managers.

Productivity Impact Evaluations

Delay claims and disputes involve time-related issues such as schedule delay, acceleration, and liquidated damages. The analysis of these time-related events is critical to the success or failure of a claim for loss of efficiency or lost productivity.

Construction Schedule Delay

Schedule Delay Analysis is the analytical process through which an expert employs Critical Path Method (CPM) techniques, in concert with a forensic review of project documentation and other relevant data, to assess and apportion the effects of delays and other impacts on the project schedule. The result of the analysis establishes a defined period of time for which a party may be entitled to receive direct and consequential damages.

Time Impact Analysis

Expert schedule analysis in delay claims often focuses on a comparison of planned versus actual schedule performance, and uses analytical methods such as Total Time, Sequential Delay, Adjusted Baseline, Adjusted As-Built and the Measured Mile. The scheduling experts at Robson Forensic will determine which methodology of analysis is most appropriate based on the type of claim and the documentation available.

Construction Evidence & Testing

Robson Forensic offers a fully appointed laboratory to assist where casework requires the testing or inspection of construction materials, products, or equipment. Our lab facilities can accommodate large evidence items and are equipped to perform testing on a variety of electrical and mechanical devices.
