Trauner assisted the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) on numerous projects involving its ambitious airport expansion. This North East Terminal Expansion Project involved a four-story structure and Hyatt Hotel ballroom; an international baggage claim facility; the North Crossfield Taxiway; construction of three new taxiways; site preparation for the NE Terminal expansion; and the West ramp rehabilitation. For the $48M North Crossfield Taxiway project, GOAA embarked on a new method of routing the aircraft and automobiles into the new terminal – an elevated taxi and roadway system. Trauner was selected by GOAA to provide a variety of services including project monitoring, CPM schedule review, on-site project oversight, and project inspection, claims analysis, delay/schedule analysis, determination of entitlement or liability, damage preparation/evaluation, preparation of as-built schedules, inefficiency analysis, participation in negotiations, determination of liability, contract interpretation, and analysis of defective work.
One project involved a foundation and sitework contract. We evaluated a delay and liability claim made by the contractor. We performed a delay analysis in order to determine the source and magnitude of delays and the calculation of cost damages related to time.
For another project, we provided on-site assistance, CPM schedule review and analysis, delay and impact analysis, the determination of liability for delay, review of all project correspondence, evaluated daily progress, documented project status, and prepared a detailed correspondence report.
