On behalf of one of the consortium contractors, evaluated claims against the other consortium contractor associated with a power and desalination project in the Middle East. The power plant design involved a change from a sub-critical power block to high-efficiency super critical technology. Evaluated numerous claims involving disputed variation orders involving technical design, equipment supply, and construction issues, delay, and increased costs. Prepared an expert report in arbitration. Provided direct and cross-examination testimony at the arbitration hearings in Dubai, UAE.

Provided dispute resolution services to a general contractor in support of $50 million of impacts against a turbine/generator manufacturer on a new power plant project. Worked directly with the general contractor’s field and office staff to research contemporaneous project records in support of project issues and impacts. Analyzed the delays stemming from hundreds of late change orders, late and inadequate responses to Requests for Information, wet and muddy conditions, filter house fire, and late and incomplete delivery of materials and equipment by the turbine/generator manufacturer. Utilized retrospective CPM schedule delay analysis methodology to successfully demonstrate and quantify impacts to the critical path for a 2,500-activity schedule. Applied retrospective CPM schedule delay analysis methodology to correctly calculate entitled time extension as well as prove constructive project acceleration. Performed schedule quality assurance reviews of the contractor’s contemporaneous schedules to correctly quantify project delay and disruption. Worked closely with the contractor to resolve problems contained within its contemporaneous schedules such as open-end activities, overuse of constraints, unexplained suspension periods on activities, incorrect as-built dates, missing as-built dates, and missing logic links. Achieved an amicable settlement for the contractor.
