Provides more than 15 years of experience in mediation, arbitration, and litigation support across the A/E/C industry including expert witness testimony on construction-related claims involving cost, schedule, and productivity issues.

Jesus has more than 15 years of experience in both the public and private sectors of the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. He has expertise in proactive and forensic project controls including project assessment and management, cost estimating, project planning, and scheduling. Jesus has worked with law firms, owners, contractors, subcontractors, and insurance carriers, and has provided analysis and testimony in arbitration and court proceedings relating to construction disputes involving the quantification of damages, cost of repair, changed work, delay, disruption, and productivity issues.  

On the proactive front, Jesus develops, analyzes, updates, and monitors construction schedules, and trains owners and contractors on scheduling best practices and project controls principles. Jesus also provides construction cost estimating services including comprehensive 3rd party project estimates, estimate audit and verification, pricing of construction projects and changed work, cost to perform repairs, and assessment of bid documentation. In prior positions, Jesus worked as a site project engineer handling 3rd party quality assurance on behalf of USACE for the New Orleans Infrastructure Improvement Program following Hurricane Katrina. He also worked as a field engineer for a general contractor specializing in education and commercial construction projects, with responsibilities spanning from estimating, surveying, field reporting, and monitoring progress, to developing and managing project schedules.   

As a forensic expert, Jesus provides mediation, arbitration, and litigation support inclusive of expert witness testimony on construction-related claims related to schedule, productivity, and cost issues. Jesus assesses and quantifies labor productivity losses and performs schedule delay analysis utilizing critical path methodologies (CPM) such as as-planned v. as-built, windows, impacted as-planned, collapsed as-built, and time impact analyses. Jesus performs comprehensive evaluations of construction claims and disputes with a strong focus on the quantification of damages involving extended general conditions, liquidated damages, home office overhead, changed work, labor inefficiencies, cost escalation, acceleration, and interest calculations. In addition, Jesus has participated in the preparation and presentation of construction insurance claims inclusive of the cost to repair defective work, the cost to undertake repair work to existing conditions to access and remediate the defective work, and the cost to protect the project from further damage caused by the defect.
