Client Name: Dean Mead
MDC Systems® was retained by a university in Florida to develop an analysis of the events and issues that arose during the construction of the university buildings. MDC Systems® performed a comprehensive schedule analysis of the causes and liability for delay during the project. This analysis required verification of the contractor’s initial schedule and the subsequent updates to determine their accuracy and reliability as a basis for analysis. The potential impact of change orders was incorporated into the schedules to determine contractor’s entitlement to additional time as a result of scope changes. The project achieved substantial completion approximately 18 months behind schedule. MDC Systems® was also requested to determine if the standard of care was met on the part of the architects and engineers for the design of the buildings. After the completion of MDC Systems®’s evaluation, the dispute was settled on terms very favorable to our client.
