ForensisGroup Construction Estimating Expert Witnesses are adept in estimating the calculation of the costs of materials, equipment, and labor for projects. They compile projected costs and create documents are formal proposals or bid offers to potential clients, considering the number of hours for labor, including subcontractors. They also analyze and opine on issues of cost overruns from estimating errors that frequently are the subject of litigation. Cost overruns are one of the most common causes of disputes in building and remodeling projects, with one party needing to invest additional money at the end of the project. Cost overruns are largely contracting disputes because the issue is usually determined by the construction contract.
Our experts consult on issues of estimating errors, which can include omissions or items accidentally left out of the estimate, which can be either soft costs such as fees and permits, or hard construction costs. Estimating issues can also arise from incorrect assumptions, inadequate allowances, and material cost or labor costs changes.
Construction estimating experts also have experience with hidden conditions like insect damage or wood decay in remodeling or underground water problems. In some instances, a more diligent investigation should have been undertaken to detect these issues.
Our experts are civil engineers with backgrounds in heavy construction management, heavy construction estimating, heavy construction bidding, cost control, project scheduling, and claim preparation and negotiating.
