Adair were appointed as an independent expert witness to provide a part 35 compliant expert witness report as part of a multi-party counter schedule response to the claimant’s schedule of loss. The dispute related to the removal and replacement of external cladding and the assessment of the quantum claim under a Prime Cost contract. We reviewed the evidence that had been provided and found it inadequate to support the value of the claim. The parties arrived at commercial settlements following the issue of reports and the case did not proceed to trial.
