Summary

I am dually qualified in engineering and law. I have 20 years’ claim / project management experience and have been working at British construction claims consultancies as a claims/disputes director for the past 4 years. I have written numerous EOT and cost claims, prepared expert reports for arbitrations, and provided arbitration management services.

During my time with EPC contractors, I had managed a team of over 10 contract managers and administrators responding to multiple projects in distress. I had drafted a company-wide claims management protocol.

I have excellent understanding of construction contracts and I ace in referring to relevant judgements from the prevailing construction cases and protocols from the Society of Construction Law.

Given the experience above and my in-depth understanding of records required to substantiate the contractor’s commercial entitlement in escalated disputes, I should be uniquely qualified for the position.

I am immediately available due to downturn of the market. I will be delighted to discuss the details in due course.

Kind regards,
Scott
