Independent Quantum Expert Opinion of Highway Maintenance Contract

United Kingdom

Quantum expert opinion of contractor claims on a seven-year term maintenance contract.

Brief

HKA was engaged by Cumbria County Council to provide an independent expert opinion of the quantum claim brought by Amey.

What we did

Our team reviewed the basis of Amey’s calculations used in relation to the quantum of their charges to the council, drawing on skills in:

  • Quantum evaluation
  • Expert opinion
  • Litigation support

Outcomes

Following Amey’s pursuit in the TCC, the council was ordered to pay Amey, predominantly based on interest, amounts withheld during the contract. It was acknowledged that HKA’s expert opinion had helped significantly reduce the amount that might otherwise have been payable.
