CPM Scheduling Expertise

 
No one knows Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling like Florida Construction & Scheduling Consultants. Our scheduling consultants are specialists in Primavera P6 and Microsoft Project. Our scheduling consultants also have extensive experience in Lean Construction Methods (Pull Planning), and 4D BIM Model scheduling integration.
Because of our extensive forensic scheduling and claims analysis work, our scheduling consultants understand the significance and consequences of CPM scheduling better than most.
Our consultant's expert work in CPM scheduling, project management and project controls brings tremendous value to our clients. Florida Construction & Scheduling Consultants performs our technical reviews of our client's schedules with a trained eye toward identifying critical-path delays and potential tactics used to mask delays, while also providing real-time claims avoidance and, if needed  claims documentation / preparation services. Those value-added services are essential in considering who to hire as your scheduling consulting—and are ultimately critical to the overall success your projects.

Forensic Scheduling & Delay Claim Analysis

 
Construction and risk go hand-in-hand and disputes can arise on the best-managed projects. However, most claims can be minimized and quickly resolved by involving a construction claims specialist to provide an independent and objective analysis of the issues at hand. With our specialized knowledge and expertise in construction claims evaluation, preparation, and recovery, we guide clients through the issues most common in construction disputes. Our review and analysis identifies the facts about what exactly went wrong; compares performance against the plans, specifications and schedule; quantifies added costs and damages; and assists in allocating liability among the parties.

Our staff are highly qualified in:

  • Forensic Schedule Analysis (specialists in AACEi 29R-03 Forensic Schedule Analysis Recommended Practice)

  • Cost & Quantum Analysis

  • Damages Analysis & Modeling

  • Disruption & Lost Productivity Claims

  • Contractor Default & Termination

  • Expert Testimony

We can assist in the preparation of a claim or prepare a rebuttal analysis pointing out errors and flaws in the other party's claim. Our people find ways to present their analysis in a manner that is persuasive, simple to understand and technically robust.
