SJ Construction Consulting, LLC (SJCC) brings our experience and expertise to bear on behalf of both owners and contractors in construction-related claims.
We have represented our clients in many claim cases, concerning matters of
- Scope creep
- Design errors/omissions
- Extended performance
- Corporate office overhead
- Production inefficiencies caused by overtime, acceleration, and cumulative impact
We assist in any way possible in the dispute resolution process, from time impact analysis to quantum calculation. Our goal is to prevent litigation if at all possible for our clients which is why we encourage our clients to contact us as soon as possible.
Contractors who utilize our services benefit not only from our decades of expertise in the field, but also the fact that turning these matters allows your staff to focus on progressing the job. We work diligently in the background to support you on your claims, while you progress the work.
Project owners benefit from our vast experience as contractors ourselves in identifying faulty or excessive claims through our entitlement evaluation and costing services. Knowing the business inside and out, we recognize bogus claims that are without merit, and can advocate on your behalf in mediation, arbitration, and litigation cases.
In support of the above services, SJCC is also capable of conducting productivity and time impact analyses, which can affect the outcome for both sides in any claims case.
