Quantum Analysis

The proper allocation of cost may often be the key to a client establishing its recoverability as part of a construction claim.

Our approach to evaluating costs and damages begins with a performance audit of the contractor’s project costs ledgers. Based on our claim analysis and auditing, the HKA team prepares an independent estimate of the costs the contractor may be entitled to recover under the relevant contract clause granting remedy or under breach of contract or tort law.

When reviewing damages, we analyse the contractor’s efforts to mitigate its damages, its cost accounting system, and the method used to calculate damages.

Our expert teams draw on specialist expertise from a range of areas for this work, including:

  • Cost engineering and quantity surveying
  • Construction cost auditing
  • Assessment of damages, additional costs, loss and expense
  • Forensic accounting
  • Estimating
  • Evaluating change orders
  • Evaluation at termination
  • Forecast cost to completion.
