Early Intervention

Early Neutral Evaluation / Independent Commercial Review

Sometimes, you have a distinct issue or concern that something is not right. You require a quick independent review of the situation to identify if you are doing everything reasonably necessary to protect your position. Our experience enables us to quickly identify the issue(s) and set out what you could do to mitigate the problem. 

This type of review could be looking at a principle of whether an item is a variation/change under the form of the contract? 

External Site Audit

Unfortunately, all too often it is not until the end of the project that poor performance manifests itself in a loss on a project. Creating positive cash flow by a combination of overvaluation and undervaluing the supply chain will eventually catch up.  We are happy to support your commercial team and provide assistance (or can carry out a site audit independently), considering the costs, claims, progress of the works.

  • Programme analysis

    We can review your programme and establish the cause(s) of the delay. This can be carried out during the project or as a retrospective analysis after the works are completed. You will need to consider whether there are contractual clauses that prevent this type of assessment.

  • Quantum Analysis

    For example, the Public Works Contract requires contemporaneous notification through the currency of the contract; you will therefore need to be on top of your applications. We can review your contract, discuss the progress of the works with your commercial and production teams and identify and establish any financial entitlements under the contract.

  • Assist with referring the matter to a third party

    Under the contract (if there is one), we can assist you in presenting your position to a third party, be that a standing conciliator, adjudicator, conciliator, arbitrator, or court.
