May 2021 – November 2021

RESPEC performed a post-construction expert witness analysis and review of a construction blasting project for an arbitration case on behalf of the owner and developer of the property. Liquidated damage claims were made by the owner and developer that blasting operations were performed without adequate design and planning on their construction. RESPEC performed a post-blast review of all available blast reports, vibration data, and billing and scheduling information. The review also consisted of an expert explosives analysis of work performed, deliverables, and the project timeline. RESPEC provided a final summary detailing the findings to the client before presenting and testifying as an expert witness in court.
