Minimize design and construction project risks

From challenging ground conditions and design flaws to differing site conditions, design and construction teams often face engineering challenges. Exponent can deliver breakthrough insights that empower your decision-making and help reduce design and construction risks, claims, and failures.

How do you effectively assess construction projects for risks and potential challenges?

Exponent's multidisciplinary teams offer powerful data and analysis, enabling you to make better, more cost-effective decisions for design and construction projects. Our experience in construction management, project scheduling, and cost analysis provides unique insight to identifying project risks. We help you mitigate risks by assessing potential failure sources or causes of damage.

Exponent's design and construction consultants provide data-driven insights for independent technical reviews, differing site conditions (DSC) claim assessments, construction challenges, earthwork and grading claims analysis, and schedule delay and damage claims assessment.

We use advanced scheduling techniques and probabilistic risk assessments to identify, quantify, and mitigate project risks at any phase of a construction project. Our expertise in construction management, defect analysis, and claims avoidance enables our clients to deliver projects on time and within budget and when claims and controversies arise, we provide support through all phases of a claim/dispute.


Our design and construction consulting services can help you address design and construction challenges in your projects with clarity and confidence from pre- through post-construction.
