On behalf of an owner, analyzed a $60 million claim from a general contractor related to alleged project delay, increased scope, and loss of labor productivity. The project was for the expansion of an existing cement manufacturing plant in Florida and involved the construction of an additional 2,800-ton-per-day production line from raw material handling through bulk material load out. Performed schedule quality assurance reviews of the contractor’s contemporaneous schedules to correctly quantify project delay and disruption from alleged late delivery of owner equipment. Worked closely with the owner to resolve problems contained within the contractor’s contemporaneous schedules such as open-end activities, overuse of constraints, missing original scope, incorrect as-built dates, missing as-built dates, and missing logic links.
