Först Consulting Group (FCG) employs a systematic approach to demonstrate disregard for common construction project practices, building plan specifications, and a contractor’s lack of competence. Our objective is to empower our clients with the necessary information and documentation to take appropriate action, whether that means remediation efforts, contract negotiations, or legal recourse. In this post, we’ll discuss some types of construction project issues and how Först Consulting Group can help you resolve them.

Construction Issues, Delays & Deficiencies

Först Consulting Group specializes in navigating the complexities of construction projects, especially when issues arise. Our primary objective is to provide practical solutions and guidance through the resolution process.

We’ll start by conducting a thorough assessment of the construction project to identify all issues, defects, deficiencies, and potential sources of delay. Then we’ll leverage our expertise to communicate effectively with your contractor to encourage swift action to rectify the issues.

Project Mismanagement Issues

FCG employs a rigorous methodology to assess and prove instances of gross mismanagement and inadequate oversight in construction projects.

We’ll start by conducting a comprehensive review of the project documentation to understand the project scope, objectives, timelines, and assigned responsibilities. Next, we perform a detailed site inspection to assess the actual progress and work quality, looking for any deviations from the approved plans, building code violations, and workmanship deficiencies. All findings are extensively documented, with photographs, measurements and recorded observation to serve as evidence and tangible proof.

In addition to physical inspections, we scrutinize project records and communications to identify instances of negligence, incompetence, or disregard for industry standards. Furthermore, we may enlist third-party experts to provide independent assessments and validation of our findings, and include both our and their findings into a comprehensive report to supply our clients with the necessary information to pursue appropriate recourse, whether it involves legal action, contract renegotiation, or restitution for damages incurred.

Project Oversight

Through construction project management, Först can closely monitor the progress of your construction project, keeping an eye on contracts and documentation, timelines, work quality, and adherence to contractual agreements in order to mitigate delays and to ensure the work is done properly. In cases where negotiations are needed, we protect your interests by acting as your advocate, whether it involves renegotiating terms, securing additional resources, or resolving disputes.
