Forensic investigation / Expert reporting

Expert investigations

Occasionally construction on site does not turn out as intended.  This may be as a result of poor design, or poor execution during construction, or as a consequence of both aspects.

Disputes arise for numerous reasons, and it is sometimes required that an investigation of the issues is carried out as part of informing the next course of action, be it further work to understand remediation, to a comprehensive forensic process resulting in expert reporting for legal procedures.

I have well-established experience in undertaking forensic investigations for construction defects.  I am backed by a team of highly experienced independent experts that are available for peer review and checking, as well as other specialist aspects of investigations.
