Industries we work in.
Roads, Bridges, Overpasses, & Detours. Unexpected conditions can disrupt road, highway, and rail construction projects. This can lead to scope changes, disruptions, and cost overruns. Projects based on a schedule of rates that is more flexible are more vulnerable to claims than those with a fixed completion date for lump-sum projects.
Electrical, Windfarms, & Solar. Wind farm projects have a lot in common with IKEA furniture, as turbines come in flatpacks consisting of tower, turbine, blades, and container with components. We dealt with issues such as unsuitable access roads and damaged blades, incorrect components, outdated manuals, and failures to obtain AEMO approvals (which was also our assistance). We also appeared as expert witnesses on cost disputes.

From long-lead procurement items and assistance in sourcing design and performance guarantees to preparation of submissions to secure board approval and project finance. We also dealt with design liability insurance claims, plant performance below specification, incomplete works, and re-work.

Office Buildings. Over 20-years developing landmark buildings such as the Star City Casino with carpark, offices, hotel and apartment towers and Lyric and Show Theatres.
