    BASES OF CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTOR CLAIMS

    1. Acceleration
    2. Cardinal Change
    3. Constructive Change
    4. Contract Termination
    5. Defective and Deficient Contract Documents
    6. Delay
    7. Differing Site Conditions
    8. Directed Change
    9. Implied Warranty
    10. Impossibility of Performance
    11. Maladministration

    EXPERTS’ ROLE IN DISPUTE RESOLUTION

    A primary role of an expert in the dispute resolution process is to provide the client with thorough and objective analysis of the issues in dispute. All to often, minor disagreements evolve into major disputes because principals from one or both sides have provide brief and biased analysis of the key issues in dispute. This may be the single most common cause of claims and disputes.

    Clients retain Holloway Consulting to manage and analyze the technical aspects of claims and provide expert witness testimony, if and when required, in the dispute resolution process. We have been qualified before numerous panels and courts, and never been the subject of a Daubert Motion.
