Construction Dynamics Solutions is an independent consultancy dedicated to the recovery of disruption and delay costs on major construction projects.
With twenty years of experience in using dynamic simulation to quantify and allocate disruption and delay on complex projects, our consultants have been involved in over a dozen major claims totalling over US$ 6 bn in damages.
Our analytical approach, Dynamic Disruption and Delay Analysis (D3A), is based upon the System Dynamics simulation methodology. Used successfully in international dispute settings, it was recently included by the Society of Construction Law in its standard toolset for assessing disruption (Delay and Disruption Protocol, 2nd edition 2017).
We are committed to continuous investment to ensure that our work remains at the leading edge of dynamic technology worldwide. By working collaboratively with our clients, we quickly adapt our procedures to fit all operational and legal frameworks.
Led by Dr Sam Mattar and Mr Alexander Voigt, our dedicated team of experts offers bespoke solutions based on our multisectoral experience in the construction industry – from rapid initial assessments that will identify major disruption sources and determine the overall viability of a claim, to fully defensible expert evidence that will hold up in front of a tribunal.
However, as is the case with any innovative approach, the construction community is bound to have some deeper questions and concerns – and some of these have indeed already been raised.
The following are some the most common questions raised about SD in construction – the answers provided are grounded in academic insight and on over two decades of professional experience on the subject.
Dr. Sam Mattar
With over 40 years’ experience in the construction industry, Sam has been engaged as an engineer, project manager, professor, claims lead and arbitration support in North America, Europe and the MENA region. He has published over 40 papers in refereed journals and is the recipient of the Thomas Fitch Rowland Award (American Society of Civil Engineers) in 1985, and the Distinguished Service Award of the Project Management Institute in 1984.
