With more than 4,000 projects completed for many of the nation’s largest owners, developers and construction companies, the depth and breadth of our project controls experience is unparalleled.
The Space Fence project is a state-of-the-art advanced radar designed to track space objects. Delays were experienced due to design issues and unforeseen conditions. Numerous subcontractors filed claims to recoup money for direct costs and extended general conditions. Through detailed analysis, Aegis assisted its client in the defense against these claims and helped promote a settlement between the parties.
USAMRIID Replacement Project
In July 2009, one of Aegis’s clients was contracted to perform the work associated with building automation and security as the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). The new facility included state-of-the-art BSL-3 and BSL-4 biocontainment laboratory spaces, animal facilities, and administrative and operational offices. During commissioning of the project, the facility experienced many setbacks due to numerous design issues and a catastrophic fire which required years of additional repair work.
Aegis was hired to evaluate the impacts and determine the issues and parties responsible for critical path delays on the project. This required the review of the extensive project records and correspondence, and the evaluation of thousands of contemporaneously documented issues. Aegis used these sources to forensically impact the project schedules and analyze them for delays. Aegis’s work assisted in the parties reaching an agreed upon settlement that included both additional time and money.
Edward Hines, Jr. Veterans Hospital
The U.S. Department of the Army contracted with an Aegis client to expand and renovate the Edward Hines, Jr. Veteran Affairs Hospital located in Hines, IL. The renovation of the North tower façade experienced delays due to design issues which extended the performance by approximately 850 calendar days. Aegis performed the forensic schedule analysis and quantified the financial impacts. Based in large part due to Aegis’s analysis, the matter settled in early 2022.
Aegis was contracted to provide an independent third-party expert opinion on design delays cause by the owner. This one-of-a-kind facility which was designed to manufacture nitrocellulose, required numerous specification revisions that extended design durations. Our analysis required the creation of a day-by-day as-built to measure the delays. Aegis created a comprehensive expert report and is currently working with the legal team to resolve this dispute.
Miami Beach Convention Center
In the fall of 2018, Aegis was engaged to provide an independent third-party opinion on the impacts and delays that occurred on the Renovation of the Miami Beach Convention Center. During the course of this project, there were several scope additions and design modifications, which extended the period of performance. These impacts were further exacerbated by shut down periods, which restricted access to the project site.
Aegis evaluated numerous contemporaneous issues, reviewed the project record, conducted interviews, and performed a forensic schedule analysis, which identified the causes of critical delay on the project. At the conclusion of its analysis, Aegis produced an expert report of its conclusions and later provided expert testimony during litigation.
The North Contract in the City of Biloxi, MS required the overhaul and replacement of Water, Storm, and Sewer lines, approximately 35 miles of paving, and associated landscaping. The Project was separated into eight areas and affected nearly every road North of the central East-West rail line in the city. The project was affected by unforeseen impacts, causing critical path delay almost immediately after the Notice to Proceed was issued. Aegis used industry standard methodologies to perform the critical path delay analysis, loss-of-productivity calculation, and draft an expert report. Construction was completed in January 2021.
414 Light Street
414 Light Street is a 44-floor luxury apartment building in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore Maryland. Questar Builders, Inc., was the developer based on the cutting-edge design of Solomon Cordwell Buenz. Aegis worked on behalf of the owner to defend against cost and delay claims from the General Contractor. In addition, Aegis provided claim support services during the construction of the project including affirmative delay analyses and the rebuttal of an opposing expert’s schedule delay analysis. In October 2019, the delay and costs were settled. Aegis was instrumental in facilitating a settlement without a protracted litigation process.
Corvias Infrastructure Solutions
Aegis provided project controls services for these unique public partnership (P3) stormwater programs that Corvias will engage in with local municipalities. These programs usually require the teams to develop their own projects within the program therefore the projects must be tracked from the planning phase through the design, procurement, and construction. Aegis developed robust project and program tracking metrics which it then published as KPI's within a dashboard that can be private and/or public facing.
Warehouse – Harbor Logistic Center Buildings 1, 2 & 3
Three buildings totaling approximately 600,000 square feet. Featuring 36-foot clearing heights and 250 parking spaces for autos, with another 39 for trailers.
STAR Campus – Biopharmaceutical Innovation Building
Aegis worked with Whiting-Turner to create and manage the schedule for the University of Delaware’s STAR Campus 6 story, 208,00 sf Biopharmaceutical Innovation Center.
A building that accommodates around 300 researchers’ labs and offices. In addition to a bioimaging center with state-of-the-art microscopes, a DNA sequencing center, an automated bioreactor for cultivating cells, a training lab for K-12 teachers, and a model pharmaceutical factory.
Metro Silver Line
The Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project is a 23-mile extension of the existing metrorail system. Phase II consists of six stations along 11.4 miles extending from Wiehle-Reston Station to Ashburn. The majority of the rail extension is in the median of the Dulles International Airport Access Highway. The project consists of both at-grade and elevated guideways. The project schedule includes detailed activities for Design, Right of Way, Permits, Civil, Track, Structures, Facilities (Stations and Pavilions), and Systems & Commissioning.
Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant
The project’s new construction included a coarse screen facility, influent pumping station, fine screen facility, grit removal facility, wet weather storage tanks, electrical substations, and structures to incorporate the facility with the existing wastewater treatment plant. The new coarse screen facility and influent pumping station features four 200 MGD coarse screens, four 70,000 GPM influent pumps and motors, four 60,000 GPM influent pumps and motors, and associated piping, valves, and flow meters. The fine screen facility includes six fine screens and two sets of solids handling equipment and the grit removal facility includes eight traveling bridge grit removal systems, grit removal pumps, grit slurry troughs, grit classifiers, and solids handling equipment.
A grit blower building, sanitary pumping station, two 18-million-gallon wet weather storage tanks, and a storage tank valve vault were constructed, along with the installation of buried piping systems and completion of backfill and surface restoration following each installation. Modifications to the main electrical substation, and installation of odor control systems, stormwater management facilities, and erosion and sediment controls were also included in the scope of work. Improvements to existing structures included the dewatering pump station and fine screen facility, modifications to the main electrical substation, selective demolition, and sitework.
