When a construction accident occurs, Envista understands the need to perform a prompt and thorough accident investigation, regardless of the severity or size of the loss, the extent of injuries or fatalities, or nuanced details. Time is often of the essence in evaluating the cause and origin of the accident, determining the liability and interested parties, and reviewing the potential for subrogation. We recognize that construction site accidents can lead to catastrophic property damage and result in growing legal exposure stemming from a personal injury due to unsafe job sites to fires, explosions, and building collapses.
Finding the right expert to evaluate the design of a defective construction project is critical to a successful resolution.

Envista's construction consultants and engineers have proven knowledge and capabilities in all areas of the construction process. Many experts are former designers, architects, engineers, builders, or contractors, which means they have the knowledge and skills you need, and they also understand the inner workings, the context, the codes, the design, and the materials of construction.
Construction schedules are the basis for performing construction work. The schedule determines the timing, sequence, and resources required to complete a project on time and within budget. Given the fast pace and shifting priorities of construction projects to meet project milestones and stakeholder deliverables, delay on a project is not unusual. It can occur at any stage as a result of different sources and various causes, most of which result in a negative impact on cost and time.
Once a construction project incurs a delay or multiple delays, it may become necessary to perform a forensic review to assess the effect a delay or disruption had on the schedule for completing the project. This review will focus on the assessment of planned performance versus actual execution of the work.
Our experts and consultants are here to support insurable and non-insurable losses and events due to delay and disruption to the original work plan/schedule, whether from peril, poorly designed scope, design change, delayed or poor decision-making, scope creep, or the cumulative impact thereof.
