About my services

CFPM Solutions is a construction consulting firm working with both Principals and Contractors and their legal advisors. We specialise in and provide Delay Analysis and Forensic Planning Expert Witness, Adjudication (QBCC) and Expert Determination services.

While the primary focus of CFPM Solutions is to provide delay analysis and expert evidence, Shady Mikhail brings over 16 years of planning and scheduling experience, and an understanding that time management, proper planning and scheduling practices are key to the success of a project.

​On the front-end, from project inception, CFPM Solutions help preparing the tender and baseline program of works, resource and/or cost load the schedule, update the baseline program and design Progress Measurement Baseline (KPIs) for Earned Value Management (EVM). Moreover, CFPM Solutions provides contemporaneous delay analysis for the timely assessment of delays, reducing the risk of post-completion disputes. CFPM Solutions has considerable experience and knowledge of the range of available delay analysis methodologies and techniques, coupled with hands-on experience in construction planning and scheduling and a thorough practical understanding of the different processes involved in construction projects.

On the back-end, as a Delay and Disruption Expert Service provider, CFPM Solutions works closely with its clients to understand the contractual framework, identify the real issues from the parties’ contentions, allocate liability, examine the root cause of delay, and analyse the subsequent impact on the critical path which determines the entitlement to extension of time.

CFPM Solutions’ services are distinguished by the high-quality of our investigations and the clear presentation of the identified facts and findings.
