Construction Claims


 

Meeting schedules and budgets. This is the “mantra” of construction project leaders in the 21st Century. The uniqueness of each construction project, whether it is a sophisticated medical center, a production facility, golf course, resort destination, convention center hotel project, multi-family residential housing, retail/office complex or a residential subdivision, presents challenges and complexities today in the face of ever-shrinking schedules and budgets. Changing contract forms, new ways of structuring the projects, hard-to-find financing, increasing environmental regulation, safety concerns, access for the disabled, tax and insurance implications are now just part of the entire design and construction process. The historically litigious nature of the industry and soaring legal costs have created the need for innovative, cost-effective solutions to resolving disputes.
