County of San Diego – Black Canyon Road Bridge

Project Synopsis
CPM Partners provided services to San Diego County – Department of Public Works as part of the 3-year As-Needed Countywide Construction Management (CM) services contract for the Black Canyon Bridge Project.

CPM developed an as-built schedule which was utilized for the evaluation of potential and actual contract changes. potential claims evaluated for merit, time extensions granted by change orders were evaluated for impact to the critical path, and findings were prepared for the County’s use in mediation and arbitration.
