The different areas of construction consulting
If you have faced loss, damage or had to face numerous delays on your project, you may consider hiring a construction consultant to put your project back on track. Here are some areas that are handled by construction consulting firms.
Restoration consulting – If your project has been damaged due to fire, water, wind, explosion, or earth movement, consultants will help to provide you with the guidance you need to handle emergency repairs.
Clerk of works – To oversee your project, consultants will look at estimates, processes, bids, contractor selection, job tracking and finishing to manage your project to reduce costs and time.
Litigation support – Consultants will provide you with support to reduce the likelihood of disputes and look into critical damage analysis. If a dispute arises, consultants will advise on how to solve the dispute and reduce damages. Most consultants will also have their expert witnesses that are trained and experienced in handling construction disputes.
Technical consulting – If your project has been stalled due to manufacturing equipment damage due to catastrophic events, consultants will provide restoration pricing and repair quotes to help restore or replace your equipment. Often this process also includes the setting of budgets to maintain the costs of the project and to stay within the planned time frames.
