EPC design build of a 500 MW gas-fired power plant. The project was significantly delayed and disrupted due to local unavailability of labor resources despite union agreements to provide the required construction manpower. Prepared a force majeure claim based on lack of available local labor and other resources. This involved considerable research into area and regional labor usage, related area and regional construction facilities, and union services interfaces. Submitted a heavily researched paper to the client including supporting CPM analysis and contract entitlements to facilitate settlement negotiations. The main contractor succeeded in recovering additional monies and avoiding liquidated damages.
