UK Infrastructure

A member of our Expert Witness team was appointed as a quantum expert
to assess the remedial costs of rectifying defective surfacing
works to 9km of highway.

The project consisted
of the specialist application of surface dressing to a UK highway

Over 9km of highway was the subject of a dispute between the contractor and client, ultimately requiring formal dispute proceedings. Detailed investigations were required into delay and quantum, alongside an understanding of acceleration and mitigation measures to minimise the impact of rectification.
Aquila Forensics was engaged as an expert witness in quantum and instructed to assess the costs arising from the remediation of 9km of defective roads, including direct and indirect labour, management and supervisory costs, overheads and profit.

The Contractor was
responsible for a
wide range of surface dressing designs and application techniques
