It has long been known that the underlying cause for an insufficient number of power plants in the UK is the result of inefficient project management.
Even the best power plant contractors can fall prey to such things as long lead times, cost overruns, engineering inefficiencies, and delays in construction.
These can all result in construction delays and almost always a need for an Extension of Time (EoT).
Power plant claims are, therefore, nothing new, and as experts in the energy sector, the team at Kenzie are ready to help you conduct a thorough delay analysis to substantiate cost overruns and delays in construction.
Joseph Bond, the managing director of the Kenzie Group, is a chartered quantity surveyor with a long history in the energy sector. He heads a team who are expert in delay analysis and all power plant claims are fully supported.
Project delays are often the result of such things as delayed delivery of materials and rejected deliveries of substandard materials, which can call a halt to construction.
This all boils down to financial losses and why it is so important to hire a consultancy that can help you renegotiate terms and mitigate future losses.
Based on a complete assessment of work to date and the underlying reasons for delays, the Kenzie team can begin to outline and negotiate prolongation claims.
These would be reasons why an Extension of Time (EoT) is necessary. The team would establish the underlying causes for delays, assess a monetary value to those delays and advise adjustments to costs and time going forward.
More than just claims specialists, the Kenzie Group are an expert and much sought-after consultancy. If there was a previous breakdown in contract negotiations, the team can help to mend any rifts in order to keep construction moving forward efficiently to the satisfaction of all parties involved.
Today’s contractors are under extreme pressure to complete projects timely, which could result in unforeseen issues causing further delays.
As a leading consultancy within the energy sector, the Kenzie team can suggest ways to stay on target whilst ensuring that construction meets or exceeds industry standards.
