I am intimately familiar with construction standards relating to concrete installation and installations performed without permits plans and etc. With regard to oil and gas stations, and the specific codes and standards that apply to them, I was a construction expert to major companies on a fire damage claim for a gas station.
Cost analysis for glass replacement is an area I am very familiar with. The process requires a site inspection and analysis, the development of a comprehensive set of specifications, (which need to include all the relevant details of the existing glass installations), and must address removal and installation costs, cost of delays, loss of use, safety and access issues etc. I have overseen the bidding of more than a hundred million dollars worth of commercial work in the last few years, including high rise buildings.
I have had decades of experience with these issues: driveways, grading and repair costs, including many rendered expert opinions. These are usually simple cases to resolve. During the course of forty years of actual construction, I have completed literally hundreds of grading and driveway installations, on all sorts of terrain.
