Except in the middle of a battlefield, nowhere must men coordinate the movement of other men and all materials in the midst of such chaos and with such limited certainty of present facts and future occurrences as in a huge construction Project….
Even the most painstaking planning frequently turns out to be mere conjecture and accommodation to changes must necessarily be of the rough, quick and ad hoc sort, analogous to ever-changing commands on the battlefield.
District of Columbia Court of Appeals

Unforeseen circumstances, alterations in the conditions of execution, delays, stoppages, etc., -and its inevitable economic consequences- alter relationships, damage the prestige and consume resources of the participants in the project, generate risks for the success of the business and end in claims and cross conflicts. Even the best planned projects can lead to controversies and disputes.

InterlatinaGP has experience in the analysis and evaluation of the multiple circumstances and events that occur during the development of the works, almost always a combination of several facts, and that have an impact on execution times and/or costs. Among them, the most common are:

• Rupture of the Economic-Financial Balance of the contract.

• Different conditions of the Site or work.
• Changes in the Scope of Work, including “substantial” changes (Cardinal Changes) and their cumulative impacts.
• Project modifications with or without the express order of the Client (Constructive Changes).
• Deficiencies or errors in the contractual documentation.
• Variations in the quantities of work.
• Lack of representativeness of the price redetermination formula.
• Suspension of work and / or unilateral termination of contract.
• Loss of Profit.
