Forensic Scheduling & Construction Claims

Stoneboy has an impressive track record in providing expert advice in the events of construction disputes and discord. We assist clients with forensic scheduling to identify, prepare, and analyze construction claims. Our success is based on many factors, including extensive experience in project management; professional competence from numerous construction projects in multiple industries; specific knowledge of the design, procurement, and construction processes; and an immaculate attention to detail.

 

At Stoneboy, in addition to utilizing industry standard methodologies, we also deploy an in-house methodology for simulating the project's lifecycle. SFM (Stoneboy Forensics Methodology), purpose built at Stoneboy, is a simpler yet sturdier solution for identification of issues during the project lifecycle, and for the quantification of such issues.

Our thought leadership and innovation, combined with our expertise and deep understanding of  the variables in construction dispute scenarios, assist us in the production and defense of claims.
