DELAY, DISRUPTION, & CRITICAL PATH
Schedule delays can impact budget and productivity—or even terminate a project. Gafcon Claims provides industry-leading solutions to resolve delay issues and develop a critical path. Our experts can also determine effects on schedule and quantify damages related to a dispute.
CONTRACT DEFAULT & TERMINATION
When a construction default happens, we are ready to help. Gafcon Claims analyzes construction default and reduces the impact on the project by resolving disputes, schedule delays, and productivity loss. When damages occur, we analyze and report on the role of each party, identify causes, and recommend remediations.
DAMAGE ASSESSMENTS
Construction damages can result in increased costs, schedule delays, productivity losses, and construction defects. Gafcon Claims is well-versed in analyzing and quantifying construction claims damages. We perform an analysis to identify potential impacts, such as schedule inefficiencies, change orders, productivity losses, and contract disputes.
CHANGE ORDER SOLUTIONS
Changes are inevitable on a construction project. However, when a change order substantially impacts a project’s scope, schedule, and cost, Gafcon Claims is ready to assist with experts experienced in reviewing and quantifying change orders.
PRODUCTIVITY LOSS ANALYSIS
Labor productivity loss usually causes contractual disputes and financial losses. Gafcon Claims’ team of experts will analyze and address the impact of adjustments to labor resources to the construction budget and schedule.

When Gafcon Claims is called upon to testify, we bring real-world experience to provide clear and defensible testimony, explaining the issues at hand that judges and juries find most convincing.
