Richard J. Long, P.E., P.Eng, founded Long International in 1996. Our mission is both to resolve and prevent problems that negatively affect the success of engineering and construction projects.
Our staff of over 60 professionals have extensive U.S. and international experience on large, complex projects incorporating conventional-phased, fast-track, or EPC turnkey concepts.
Our officers and many of our principals have worked together for more than 20 years. Our long-term relationships are built upon effective communication and efficient teamwork.
Since 1996, Long International has provided engineering and construction claims analysis, dispute resolution, property damage and business interruption claims analysis, and project management consulting services to clients around the world.
Long International’s senior personnel have extensive claims analysis and dispute resolution experience encompassing over 400 projects worldwide.
Long International has developed a comprehensive training manual for the prevention and resolution of engineering and construction claims through effective contracting, contract administration, project controls and project management.
Long International uses a phased approach to engineering and construction claims analysis and expert testimony services.
Front-end planning schedule optimization techniques, including the DCMA 14-point schedule assessment and other quality checks, can help validate that a project baseline schedule is reasonably achievable.
We provide property damage, business interruption, advance loss of profits, and delayed start-up claims analysis services to insurance companies.
Our senior-level personnel utilize their extensive experience in pipeline projects to perform analyses of disputed change orders, requests for time extensions and schedule delay damages, and productivity loss claims.
We assist in the critical aspects of project management, cost and schedule control, contract administration, claims prevention, and dispute resolution.
Our cost-based engineering and construction claims analyses involve the preparation or defense regarding the increased time and cost of performance resulting from unresolved change orders, disputed specifications, delays, loss of productivity, and other causes.
We employ a combined approach to damages quantification, integrating our engineering, accounting, and financial professionals.
Our risk and uncertainty analyses involve sophisticated cost and schedule models that, with the client’s input, forecast a range and probabilities of outcomes to better define the uncertainties of claim values or project completion dates.
Our contemporaneous and retrospective schedule delay analyses typically focus on comparing as-planned, updated, and as-built project schedules to identify and quantify delays to a project’s critical and near-critical paths.
Our schedule quality assurance reviews identify common schedule problems and include recommendations to rectify these problems.
