Our Work:
Claim preparation and analysis

We succeed for our clients because we understand the essentials of an effective claim submission:

  • a proper understanding of the parties’ contractual entitlements and the applicable law
  • detailed forensic examination and analysis of the facts
  • demonstration of the linkage between cause and effect
  • demonstration of actual loss and/or expense incurred.

We can provide the necessary expertise to enable the causes of delay and disruption to be determined, the viable heads of claim to be identified, and a thorough assessment made of the quantum of loss and/or expense incurred.

Some of the means we employ to achieve this are:

  • accurate valuation and measurement of works executed
  • proper evaluation of variations to the works or the conditions of working
  • prospective and retrospective delay analysis
  • evidencing disruption and lost production costs – e.g. ‘measured mile’ assessments
  • calculation of unabsorbed overhead costs
  • loss of profit assessments
  • interest and financing calculations.
