RAI assists owners, contractors, sub-contractors, and suppliers in preparing, analyzing, or defending claims for outstanding balances and increased costs resulting from changes in project scope or job delays. In addition to applying the most current management techniques such as Critical Path Scheduling (CPM) and computerized cost analysis to the construction claims area, we bring the advantage of total objectivity. Our objectivity in analyzing a claim very often saves much time and money by eliminating the emotionalism associated with many claims and bringing about a quick settlement.
RAI provides services for clients involved in various types of construction litigation, retaining our services to avoid and/or resolve a construction claim. Specifically and depending on the case, Forensic Schedule Analyses, As-Planned vs. As-Built Schedule Analyses, Time Impact Analyses, Contemporaneous Window Analyses, and Resource Graph Comparisons (cost, manpower, etc.) are prepared to support a claim.
The value of our experience in the support of construction claims becomes an even more important asset when we represent the interests of an owner for a major project. Our expertise will serve to protect the owner against many of the pitfalls that are not as obvious to those with less experience in recognizing the ramifications of decisions, requests, and communications on the day-to-day course of the project. In most cases, the success of a claim is also contingent upon the testimony of an expert witness. RAI has the credibility and proven track record to support a construction claim with testimonial support.
