Claims / Change Order Analysis

The allocation of risk on a construction project begins at the planning stage and continues to project completion. Changes during a project may occur at any time and come from many sources. They can be owner initiated, contractor driven, the result of a design error/omission, or from a concealed condition, to name a few examples. Quantifying the true impacts of these changes and determining liability can be challenging without the knowledge and experience to do so.

JMT provides proactive and retroactive engineering claims and construction claims support to help mitigate and prevent losses. Our construction project managers and dedicated in-house experts prepare claims analysis reviews and present strategic industry insight for an assortment of private and public agencies. We have performed claims analysis and CPM schedule reviews and have testified at various levels of dispute resolution.
