Caltrans Construction Defect Case


Forensic Consulting


Mono County, CA




Blackburn Consulting served as a consultant and expert on this $12M differing conditions claim against Caltrans. We organized and reviewed thousands of background files including project correspondence, site photos, site geology, subcontractor estimates, industry standard practices, plans, special provisions, foundation report, and seismic analysis documents. We created a presentation for Caltrans to summarize the complex technical issues. Blackburn Consulting coordinated with Caltrans employees, Caltrans managers and attorneys, opposing parties, and the independent mediator. We then created a presentation for mediation. Mr. Blackburn gave the presentation at mediation to over 40 involved participants. 


The case settled at the first mediation at a reasonable price.
