We analyze engineering, procurement, construction management, and project performance problems.

In the engineering and construction industry, owners put language in EPC and EPCM contracts that defines the standard of care, standard of excellence, and good industry practice required of contractors.  Multiple design changes and failures to perform engineering, procurement, project management, and construction management contractual responsibilities, as defined by contract clauses, increase the time and cost to complete engineering and construction projects. 

Our Standard of Care Experts have analyzed claims on some of the largest construction disputes in the world involving owner allegations that EPC or EPCM contractors failed to perform their work according to good industry practice or the standards of care and excellence identified in contract documents.

Our analysis includes assessing compliance with the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Book of Knowledge and Construction Extension, the Construction Industry Institute’s Knowledge Structure, AACE International’s Professional Practice Guides, and Construction Management Association publications.  

When a negotiated settlement of a standard of care or standard of excellence claim is not reached, our experts have testified in international arbitration proceedings.  Topics we have analyzed and testified on include:
