[Trauner’s] work formed the basis of our critique of the plaintiff’s damage claim, and was a very important factor in leading the case to settlement. Geoff [Page] prepared a credible estimate for a much lower number, and worked with the plaintiff’s expert toward resolution. He was diligent, detail-oriented and proactive.

Trauner was hired to assist in the analysis of costs associated with the failure of a large diameter sewer interceptor pipe lining on a $23.8M project in San Diego, CA. The contractor was sued by the City of San Diego for $9M in repairs. Trauner reviewed the city’s repair estimate and developed an independent estimate. After seeing Trauner’s estimate, the City and the contractor settled for 50% of the original value.
