Services

We offer three main services, tailored to your business needs: Construction Claims Analysis +; Construction Claims Services; Business Intelligence.

Construction Claims Services

Loss and Expense Claims

A well-drafted construction contract will include provision for making a claim for loss and expense due to the failure by one party to abide by the agreement.
 
If your construction project has incurred additional costs due to the effects of delay and disruption, then we can provide you with tailored solutions to determine the best route to compensation.
 
We have a proven track record in undertaking complex loss and expense services within most sectors including oil and gas, construction, rail, renewables, civil engineering, fit out, water and defence and can help at each stage of the process.
 

Adjudication Services

Adjudication is a fast, interim dispute resolution process. We have over 20 years’ experience of working within the boundaries of Adjudication to resolve construction disputes. Working under the instruction of your solicitors, we can provide quantum, data and delay analysis.

With our experience in dispute management we are well placed to help resolve your case efficiently whilst keeping you informed at every stage of the process. For expert advice and assistance with an adjudication case, contractual matters or further information on any aspect of construction dispute resolution please get in touch.

Contra Charges

We have worked on a large number of contra charge accounts, also known as back charges, over the years. The use of contra charge accounts between trades via the main contractor can get very messy and the amounts at stake are often significant.

However, there is some good news. We have assisted many contractors over the years with what are often spurious contra charges to get your just entitlement. So whether you are involved in a rubbish rip off, or other contra charge claims, be reassured that we can assist you with this process should you need our assistance.

Claims Avoidance

Anyone involved in construction will know the vast number of disputes that routinely occur. It is reported that nine out of ten mega projects experience cost overruns, commonly up to 50% and exceptionally more.

However, there are steps that you can take to help protect your interests should you be in the unfortunate position of dealing with a claim. We can help you build resilience to claims into your business and provide the benefit of our vast experience in construction claims should you need to deal with one.

Delay Analysis

Delays are commonplace in the construction industry; at least 40% of mega projects are reported to experience delays. Delays are costly and frustrating for everyone involved and their analysis can be highly complex, with the financial impact often involving significant sums of money.
 
This is where we can help. We can provide a full forensic delay analysis support service to guide you through the process when you need it, at every stage of the project.
 
Our vast experience in delay analysis means that we can identify the best solution for you and the particular circumstances of your case.

Construction Claims Analysis +

Construction Data Collection

It is more important than ever that your organisation collects the correct site data at the right time. Ensuring that this is all received, correctly structured and securely stored so that it complies with General Protection Data Rules (GDPR) is a tall task. 
 
Paper records are too easily lost, illegible or missing important information.
 
Our experience shows that although many businesses retain the all-important data, it’s often hard to locate and difficult to access. Requiring lots of data wrangling and reformatting, costing you time, money, and hassle that you don’t want in the middle of a claims dispute. 
 
And since insights are only as good as the data you have, it’s vital to collect critical data in a form that’s ready for interrogation as and when you need it. Saving you time, especially when digitally converting paper documents, such as delivery dockets, sub-contractor reports and receipts.

Construction Data Preparation

Construction industry data is often messy, incomplete and rarely in a usable format.
 
Coupled with our experience as construction claims consultants across London and beyond, our innovative data extraction software will do most of the heavy-lifting, cleaning and formatting of your site data for you – transforming your data into usable, insightful information.  
 
Knowing what data to capture during a project is fundamental, but it’s often not always clear from the start. It’s only when disputes arise that managers fret and hunt for the required data. 
 
Should you be in the unfortunate position of a future claims dispute, having the right data to hand, and in an easily accessible format, significantly reduces the costs associated with a satisfactory resolution. 
 
Our extensive experience of construction claims, their causes and their successful resolution allow us to advise on what data to track, how to capture it and best practice in its storage.

Construction Data Analysis

Traditional ways of analysing data make it difficult and time-consuming to generate useful comparative analysis and insights. Our intuitive software tools, together with our experience, makes this job quick, easy and straightforward. 
 
The ability to test the consequences of different business decisions responsively delivers the insights demanded by a modern construction business.
 
Implementing a joined-up data capture and interpretation system allows almost real-time analysis and a significant reduction in management risk. The data feeds into easily understood dashboards, explicitly designed for you and your management team, keeping you informed of the performance of your project as it happens.

Bespoke Claims Analysis

By using innovative tools, we can prepare your data and enhance its traceability to identify problems with the underlying calculations, something that is often critical to the satisfactory resolution of claims disputes. 
 
Our bespoke claims analysis service allows you to explore large quantities of data quickly and clearly, securely hosted for appraisal by all relevant stakeholders and can – subject to your permissions – allow them to collaborate, iterate and test their ideas, offering significant benefits over other ways of working.
 

Business Intelligence

Clarity for your Construction Data

The outcome of the majority of construction claims relies on the accurate interpretation of all your construction information, including key construction data.
 
We can help you with any current claims, whilst minimising your exposure to future disputes and financial risk, by simplifying your data and its interpretation.
 
We give you instant clarity and a deeper understanding of the relationship between the causes of delays and overruns and associated costs through visual, interactive representations of your data.

Leading Business Intelligence Tools

Combining our extensive knowledge of the causes of disputes with our leading business intelligence tools, our construction claims consultants can help you to produce a rich, engaging analysis of your data that all decision-makers, managers and staff can understand, buy into and use.
 
We are often able to unearth patterns and insights previously hidden with traditional construction management tools and techniques.
 
This clarity gives you a far greater insight into the root causes of financial claims, while highlighting areas ripe for efficiency gains. The knowledge gained through such an analysis can also significantly reduce the financial risk associated with your next construction project, big or small.
 

The Dashboard

Your company dashboard is built bespoke to your needs. Incorporating your company’s branding, flags and reminders to action the key metrics which add value to your business.
 
Your confidential, company-critical data is hosted safely within our secure environment, with access controlled only by you.
 
We put you in control of granting access to authorised personnel who can easily subscribe to relevant dashboards, add comments and receive notifications when performance metrics cross user-defined thresholds.

Training and Ongoing Support

Your business is unique, so after understanding your company, how you work and the problems you face, we can recommend and implement software tools that match these specific needs.
 
We want to give you the tools and techniques to take control of your analytics, so once you’re up and running with the software, we can arrange for either in-house or off-site classroom-based training to show you and your staff how to make the most of the benefits it offers. 
 
For additional support, we can also provide ongoing assistance for when your requirements change, or you require further input to develop new analysis methodologies or displays.
