Welcome to KD Burns Associates
Thank You for visiting the Web Site of K D Burns Associates – Construction Management Consultancy. Our aim is to provide all parties to the Construction Industry, An Independent, Professional and Excellent level of Service, of Quality, of Experience, and of a Real understanding of Building and Contracting issues. With more than 30 Years experience in Main Contracting Senior Management, of which more than 15 years have been at Main Director Board level, in the areas of, Social Housing, Public Funded Works, including Health, Education, the Crown Estate and Governmental Establishments, together with Commercial and Industrial type Construction Projects.
We are able to provide hands on Managerial advice and Expertise that can re-vigour and re-focus any project team on the completion task ahead.
We are able to provide support on issues of disagreement regarding time related issues, quality of works and financial matters.
On live projects that have possibly lost their drive and focus of delivery, we have been successful many times in galvanising the incumbent project team in re-focussing on the real issues and into a belief that the project goals can be achieved to the benefit of all parties.
On matters of dispute we are able to provide a determined focus on establishing and achieving the correct understanding of the issues in dispute, to allow a correct outcome.
The real understanding of any issues in Construction is always based upon an understanding of the facts and the detail of the issues involved.
When parties to a Contract have firm beliefs that they are right and others are wrong, entrenchment can sometimes obscure the true picture and blight any chance of mutual reconciliation.
Drawing upon real life experience in dealing with such issues that do occur in the Construction Industry, we offer a wealth of practical experience to assist in overcoming the pressures of difficult situations that occur, in the areas of Project Management, Financial Evaluation, Contract Advice, Final Accounts, or Alternative Dispute Resolution.
In the event of a dispute occurring we will offer an initial opportunity to mutually settle the differences that have occurred between the parties by offering a realistic approach to obtaining understanding of the various parties to the detail involved, however in the event mutual reconciliation is not possible, we provide an excellent level, and track record of support in resolution through Adjudication, Arbitration or Litigation.
