DGA has been operating in the construction industry since 1993, providing commercial and planning services to all sectors but with a significant focus on both the highways and transportation sectors. This includes new construction, renewals, maintenance and operational activities associated with local authority, national infrastructure works, both in the UK and internationally.
DGA provides assistance from procurement, contract administration, commercial management secondment, project planning, claims management and dispute resolution. This includes acting on behalf of parties in formal dispute processes providing related commercial and delay expertise in forums such as litigation, adjudication and arbitration, either in positions of advocacy or expert witness evidence.
Our consultants are familiar with all forms of contracts commonly used in the highways and transportation sector such as ICE, NEC, FIDIC, as well as bespoke Private Finance Initiative (PFI), Public-Private Partnership (PPP) and Design, Build, Finance and Operate (DBFO) contracts.
By way of example, some typical schemes where DGA have had, or currently have, involvement are Channel Tunnel Rail Link, Jubilee Line Extension, East London Line Extension, Crossrail, HS1 and 2, Connect Plus M25, Birmingham City Highways, Local Authority Highways Frameworks, National Motorway widening projects and Smart Motorways Schemes and distinct local and national projects.
