Industries in which we work.
Roads, Bridges, Overpasses, & Detours. Road, Highway and Rail construction projects are plagued by unanticipated conditions which cause disruption, lead to changes in scope, and cause 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 We dealt with issues ranging from unsuitable access roads, damaged blades, incorrect componentry, outdated manuals, and failure to obtain AEMO approvals (which we assisted with). We also served as expert witnesses in cost disputes.
Process Plants Full life cycle. 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 claims for design liability insurance, plant performance below specification, incomplete work, and rework.

Office Buildings. Over 20 years of building landmark buildings like the Star City Casino with carpark and offices, as well as hotel and apartment towers, and Lyric and Show Theatres.
