Claims and Dispute Resolution Support

Offshore Energy offers construction claims, ADR and litigation support services which focus on the most critical and labour intensive elements of preparing a construction claim, submission for ADR or litigation including document management, research and preparation of narratives, delay analysis and demonstrative evidence. These services are ideal for any subcontractor, contractor, employer or busy construction claims consultancy needing to move quickly to prepare a claim or submission. Although we specialise in oil and gas, renewables and telecommunications project the Offshore Energy dispute resolution division can also provide support to other sectors in the construction industry including civils, rail, nuclear and defence. 

Document Management

Using the same principles and EDMS of Offshore Energy's project document management service, our Claims Specialist work on live project, with the Project Team, to identify and collate key project documentation such as correspondence, programs, contract documentation, variations, procedures, drawings, progress photographs, minutes of meetings and documentation related to changes, delays, over-spend or areas of risk. This service can be adopted from the start of a project on a part-time basis depending on the work load, ensuring you are always in a position to effectively and rapidly mobilise for a claim or submission.

Pure Research

Retrieval, collation and research of project documentation is extremely labour intensive and can amount to forty percent or more of the time required to prepare a construction claim or submission for ADR. We can visit sites and other locations to retrieve and collate the documentation related to a dispute. Using our unique, semi-automated research tool Offshore Energy's Claims Researchers can work twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to research project documentation.  Months of research can be completed in weeks and the evidence presented in a chronological, cross-referenced and fully searchable database available for immediate use in drafting the claim or submission. 

Narratives, Delay Analysis and Demonstrative Evidence

Our Claims Specialist can prepare narratives of the delay or quantum events for the final claim or submission in clear language using the proper terminology and agreed template with citations to the evidence substantiating the story of each event. If required we can also prepare delay analysis and demonstrative evidence to visually represent the story of the events using the most suitable medium from delay analysis to illustrations and graphics.
