Construction claims and disputes services

EPM provides the technical expertise and practical objectivity to bring about fast and
favorable resolution to a variety of construction related claims. We do not practice
law nor provide legal advice, but we work with client's plaintiffs' and defendants'
attorneys to assist them with the necessary engineering and construction experience
to prepare for the presentation or defense of construction related claims.
We work in parallel with the client & his staff to identify & resolve any disputes that
may happen early enough when difficulties & costs associated with changes are at
their least.
EPM assists owners, contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers in preparing,
analyzing, or defending claims for outstanding balances and increased costs
resulting from change in project scope or job delays. In addition to applying the most
currently used management techniques, such as critical path scheduling (CPM), and
computerized cost analysis to construction claims, we bring the advantage of total
objectivity.
Our objectivity in analyzing a claim very often saves much time and money by
eliminating emotionalism and bringing about a quick and equitable settlement
through negotiation.
No matter what strategies or approaches are used to avoid claims, disputes may
occur; as projects often fall behind schedule, respectively significant unexpected
costs arise raising claims.
When a claim proceeds to arbitration or litigation, we become part of the trial team by
preparing exhibits, working with witnesses, and where necessary, testifying.
EPM's claims & dispute services are:

  • Assess & evaluate the technical & contractual situations to determine liability.
  • Identifying causes of delay and productivity assessments to point out the effect of the actions of the responsible party / parties on time & cost.
  • Evaluating the damages, and their costs.
  • Participate in negotiations, arbitrations, litigations, or hearings mandatory to resolve claims & disputes.
