Construction Claims and Dispute Resolution

Whenever unforeseen or changed conditions, circumstances and events occur on a construction project, it affects the flow of construction moving forward and consequently, the duration and cost to complete the work. Envista's experts understand the principles that govern a construction project, and appreciates the challenges and risks that can impact and prevent the efficient and effective progression of work.

Our experienced construction claims team facilitates the process by establishing cause and effect relationships and the allocation of responsibility supported by demonstrated entitlement. 

We are construction dispute specialists

Distinct and unique elements exist within every construction project. Claims not only require independent analysis of contributing factors and knowledge of fundamental methodologies, but also some out-of-the-box thinking to demonstrate and support the extent of damages incurred. Through careful application of schedule logic, critical path analysis, labor and equipment expenditures analysis, earned value assessments and forensic document review, our construction claims experts deliver supporting documentation on the conditions and circumstances that impacted construction, and the result it had on schedule and productivity. 

Given Envista has numerous specialty practices, we have the opportunity to draw on the expertise of other in-house engineers (when needed) such as civil, structural, electrical and mechanical, to thoroughly examine claims and provide the most accurate report and assessment.
