As delays or changes are often unforeseen, projects have the tendency to exceed the original budget. Our involvement facilitates the management of these changes and delays, thus preventing unresolved claims,” says Herbert Chock, president of the firm.
“Contractors and owners now realize the important role that a qualified construction management company plays in the successful completion of a project.”
However, when claims become unavoidable, Herbert Chock & Associates has the experience and the necessary resources to produce documentary analyses of a request for an equitable adjustment to the contract with cost-effective resolution as the objective.Herbert Chock & Associates has the expertise and experience to investigate and resolve problems arising at any stage of construction on behalf of the owner, contractor or sub-contractor. Having represented both owners and contractors, they have a broad and comprehensive perspective on the dispute resolution process. “Whenever possible, we stress the cooperation among the disputing parties by underscoring the ultimate goal—the timely completion of the project within budget and according to specifications,” says Chock.
