Our Story

Chris Boyle

After a long and varied career in the building and construction industry I am offering to provide a consultancy service that contributes to the professionalism and skills growth of those commencing their careers. In a volatile and complicated industry all too often differences of opinion, and many other factors, can occur that result in disagreement and disputation. This costs the industry and consumers considerably in monetary terms but more importantly, reputational damage and for many personal ruin.

In addition to providing assistance to those at the start of their careers in the industry, I am also very interested in assisting in dispute management when things have gone wrong. This aspect encompasses expert witness work, inspection and reporting on technical aspects of work, commentary on the options and alternative dispute strategies with a view to resolution.
