Overrun Avoidance

There are a number of reasons why a construction project may face timeline and budget changes.

Dispute & Litigation

When it comes to properly resolving a construction dispute, experience is key. At TruEst, our team of experienced construction consultants provide support to your construction dispute litigation team at every stage of the litigation process. Whether it by helping clients in preparing or quantifying claim, contract review or to providing expert witness.

Replacement Cost Estimates

Our team will also help to determine reconstruction cost for your property to ensure that you are properly insured in the event of a total or partial loss. This will ensure you are not over-insuring your building and paying more for insurance than you need to, but also ensures you have enough insurance to cover your building should a loss occur.

Appraisal value only shows how much you could reasonably expect from sale of your property at the current market value. It does not count for the cost incur towards the demolition of remaining property to cleanup site as per ministry standards, the escalation cost for reconstruction much more.
