We will communicate the facts in an effective and accurate manner, and help to mitigate the dispute at this juncture. Our analyses may include, but are not limited to:

Our firm also has the knowledge and experience to analyze the dollar value of any damages claimed and/or counterclaimed throughout the construction process. We can benchmark the costs based on industry data, assess the validity of damage claims, review cost tracking and help to verify financial implications. The goal of our work is to provide your litigation team with the “real numbers” related to the claim.
Your client’s particular needs will determine the depth of the required research, which can encompass variables ranging from subcontractors cost to the owners costs. If required, Keene Klimas can also conduct a comparative cost analysis of any potential resolutions to the claims.
It takes a real-world understanding of the ins and outs of the construction industry to analyze a project from start to finish. Keene Klimas is your best choice for thorough review and reporting as related to an entire project’s cost basis. We will research the validity and accuracy of:
- Contractor estimates and pay requests
- Subcontractor pay requests
- Change orders and back charges
- Material vendors
- General conditions
- Direct/indirect overhead costs
The end result is detailed tracking of every dollar spent, verification that the pay requests are accurately reflecting the work performed, and identification of the contractual funds available for completion.
