He is a civil engineer and delay analyst with over 25 years’ experience in the construction industry, of which the past 17 years have been spent working within project planning, strategic advice, project management and dispute resolution teams globally.
Much of the analysis carried out by David has involved detailed reviews of the design, procurement or the construction process of a project. As part of these roles David has worked on various projects across the globe within all major construction fields including oil and gas, civil engineering, infrastructure, and residential and commercial construction.
David has acted as an expert witness on several occasions. He has prepared expert witness reports, given oral expert testimony and provided strategic advice to solicitors and counsel on various time-related disputes.
In the 2011 case of Carillion JM Ltd v PHI Group Ltd, and Robert West Consulting Ltd, heard at the Technology and Construction Court in London, in which David acted as the planning expert for one of the parties, the Honourable Mr Justice Akenhead said of David in his judgment: “I found him to be particularly straight, keen and focused.
