Long International provides expert engineering and construction claims analysis and expert testimony, project management consulting, and insurance claims analysis services to the engineering and construction industry worldwide. Founded by Richard J. Long, P.E., a chemical engineer with over 40 years of experience, our primary focus is on petroleum refining, petrochemical, chemical, oil and gas production, mining/mineral processing, power, cogeneration, industrial, infrastructure, and building projects. We have prepared expert reports and testified in U.S. and international arbitrations and litigations. Since 1996, Long International has served clients and projects located in over 40 countries spanning six continents.
Our clients tell us that Long International has more experienced engineering and construction claims experts in the petroleum refining, oil & gas, petrochemical, hydrocarbon processing, and industrial plant market sectors than any other U.S.-based claims consulting company that they have encountered. We also have extensive experience in building and infrastructure projects. Our experts have designed and built projects, and managed the cost and schedule control functions of projects. In addition, we have analyzed claims involving disputed change orders, schedule delay, acceleration, time extensions, and liquidated damages, loss of productivity, defective specifications, deficient project management performance, property damage, delayed start-up, advance loss of profits, and business interruption damages.
Our experts have also served as testifying experts in U.S., Canada and international arbitration and litigation. We employ a systematic, phased approach to providing claims analysis and project management services for our owner, engineering, construction contractor, construction manager, and insurance company clients and their law firms. After identifying our client´s needs, problems or challenges, we then structure a cost-effective scope, schedule and budget for our work.
