Warner’s team has effectively provided not only project management services for award-winning international airport expansion projects; including schedule development and analysis and contracts administration, but also in expert analysis of time/cost/damages in claims consultation.
Dubai International Airport
The Dubai International Airport Phase II Expansion project was to provide additional facilities to accommodate the growing airport traffic, which was expected to cater to more than 70 million passengers and 3.5 million tons of cargo per year. The expansion project provided additional buildings, airfield, and ancillary facilities to the total cost of roughly $4 billion. Warner prepared an extension of time and a cost claim for delays associated with late access, the late delivery of free-issue materials, design modifications, and other unforeseen events. Warner’s claims effort included extensive program (schedule) analysis, progress monitoring, the development of an as-built program, and the assessment of an opposing expert analysis.
Hong Kong Airport
The award-winning, 5,000,000 square foot terminal, with approximately 70 gates, cost roughly $1.5 billion to construct, and it accommodates more than 36 million passengers yearly through an extensive use of moving walkways and a dedicated subway. Warner was retained by counsel to determine what events and circumstances caused delays to the construction of the terminal and to quantify each separately. The findings were presented in a lengthy mediation that ultimately resulted in a significant settlement for the counsel’s client
Doha International Airport
Warner was engaged for work on Doha International Airport’s new terminal and expansion project by a large subcontractor responsible for multimillion dollars of work in the airport’s main terminal building. Warner’s project management scope included: consultation and contract negotiations, schedule and bid analysis, assistance with local business establishments, and schedule and contract administration as required for the project’s entire duration.
Baltimore International Airport
As Baltimore Washington International Airport commenced construction of a new 360,000 square foot international arrivals and departures concourse, Warner was initially retained to assist its contractor in developing an overall schedule for the project. During the course of construction, significant redesigns of the space frame structures resulted in substantial delay. Warner was then retained to quantify the delays occasioned by those changes and identify the costs associated with each delay. Warner also assisted its client in negotiations that led to a settlement prior to litigation.
