Damage Quantification Experts
Direct & Indirect Construction Claims
Construction claims are often the result of cost overruns, time delays or construction defects, all of which are qualitatively visible. Quantification of damages associated with construction claims is a diligent effort, as they are often intertwined between various aspects of the project, such as cost estimating, scheduling, sequencing and project management.
Construction disputes can involve any number of issues relating to design and construction. In many cases, these issues can be technical and may not be easy for people unfamiliar with the construction process to understand. The same is true for determining and quantifying damages associated with these issues. e-basel experts are experienced and knowledgeable about tracking and pricing change orders and construction claims during projects, as well as quantifying damages as experts in litigation and construction. There are numerous ways to calculate damages associated with changes, disruptions, delays, and interferences on construction projects. Our expertise allows us to determine the most effective methodology to calculate damages, as well as the knowledge to clearly and persuasively communicate those damages in an easy to understand manner.
There are many types of damages that can occur on construction projects including, but not limited to, the following:
- Direct damages (e.g., labor, material, construction equipment, consumables, etc.)
- Indirect damages
- Extended project costs and general conditions
- Additional home office overhead costs
- Unpaid changes
- Cost escalation
- Additional costs due to productivity losses and inefficiencies
- Acceleration costs
- Delay damages
Additionally, there are numerous methods for quantifying these damages. In order to determine the most effective methodology for quantifying the damages, our consultants perform a thorough evaluation of the project, including reviewing contemporaneous project records, fact witness testimony, and key project cost and schedule data. Through this analysis, we then assess the proper cause-and-effect relationships for damage allocation, as well as the level of information available to determine which quantification method will most accurately quantify the related damages. Not all situations call for the same damage models and, depending on the situation, our consultants may utilize one or more of the following in their analysis:
- Discrete pricing/actual cost analysis
- Contractual rates
- Total cost/modified total cost
- Measured mile productivity analysis
- Accepted industry studies for productivity inefficiencies .
- CPM schedule analysis for extended project costs.
Quantifying damages is important; however, being able to clearly and persuasively explain the damages is equally as important to judges, juries, and arbitrators. e-basel consultants recognize this fact and work with our staff of graphics artists to develop easy-to-understand illustrations and graphics that simplify and explain key damage quantification issues for our written opinions, as well as for demonstrative aids in arbitration and litigation.
