Construction Claims Management

The reality is that challenges always arise. How you resolve them will make the difference. Whether you need to pursue claims against another party for fair compensation due to project impacts or have to respond to claims, Spire’s seasoned professionals have the experience to help you. Spire is a full-service firm that has experience in project management, project controls, and dispute resolution. Our experience covers all aspects of construction and engineering projects across most industries worldwide. We are also independent and thus able to provide unbiased support in preparing or addressing claims.

Spire’s dispute resolution practice includes all aspects of claims management. We have experience in managing claims for owners, contractors, subcontractors, and engineering firms. That experience extends from before a claim is even submitted through expert testimony in court or arbitration and beyond.

In the unfortunate event whereby a party has been impacted on a project and needs to submit a claim for cost or schedule impacts, Spire’s staff can help identify, analyze, prepare, and substantiate claims to support equitable cost adjustments or schedule extensions resulting from the impacts. Our consultants are equipped to provide ongoing support in assessing or validating a party’s entitlement and quantification of damages to promote resolution. By analyzing the contract and the parties’ performance throughout the project duration, our consultants can identify liability, quantify damages, and assist in resolving the dispute in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Spire can also help evaluate and develop responses to submitted claims. Should a construction claim occur, we can assist you in assessing or validating entitlement and quantification of damages thus promoting a successful resolution in an efficient and timely manner.
