Services for the Construction Contractor

How Can WHI Help the Construction Contractor?
Well-executed construction projects minimize cost and maximize productivity, which increases profits and enhances your reputation for delivering quality construction on time and in budget. Unfortunately, many construction projects present complex management challenges for contractors. Depending on the size and difficulty of the project, some of the most troublesome challenges include the coordination of hundreds of shop drawings, ordering an infinite variety of materials with optimum delivery times, integrating all subcontractor and specialty work, and correctly sequencing the arrival of the materials, equipment, and trade manpower. Due to the complexity of coordinating all of these elements, an oversight or miscalculation often results in financial losses for the contractor.

CPM Scheduling
WHI's professional staff is extremely knowledgeable regarding the management of construction projects and the avoidance of claims. WHI's experience has shown us the importance of developing a well-conceived CPM schedule at the start of a project, in order to improve the coordination of all parties involved. A good CPM schedule graphically shows how all activities on the project are related, the duration of each activity, and the effect each activity has on the overall completion of the project. A well-conceived and updated CPM schedule will save significant time and money, and will help avoid or minimize claims on projects. Considering the benefits and potential savings of a good schedule, it is advantageous to have a professional scheduler develop and oversee your CPM scheduling.

WHI has provided CPM scheduling services for contractors on billions of dollars worth of construction projects over the past 40 years. Our schedulers use "best of breed" project management software to facilitate scheduling and provide customized reports. We also provide 24/7 access to scheduling information via a specialized website designed for each of our clients. You get the very best experience and technology in the industry when you hire WHI to assist you with scheduling.

Dispute Resolution / Construction Claims Analysis and Support
When disputes develop, the project is in trouble and the potential for financial loss is great. It is difficult for the parties involved to resolve disputes because each party becomes increasingly entrenched in its position as time goes on. If you are truly interested in negotiating a solution, WHI will review the facts from an objective position, and form an unbiased expert opinion to aid in settlement negotiation. WHI has assisted in the resolution of hundreds of construction disputes, and in doing so we have helped our clients avoid the more significant losses often associated with litigation.

If you are considering litigation, WHI will assist you in determining if a claim is worth pursuing. Working with your staff, WHI will establish why you are entitled to an equitable adjustment, either through the change-order process or a more formal resolution process. With over 45 years of indispensable knowledge and experience in calculating and substantiating damages, WHI will work with you and your attorney to help you successfully navigate the litigation process.
