“…the award is pretty much entirely in our favour. We were awarded only about US$100k less than we had claimed and they got nothing for their counterclaims. All in, we got just shy of US$30 million.
As you will see, the Tribunal placed particular reliance on your evidence, which it accepted without qualification. Thanks very much indeed for all your valuable work on this.”

I made the presentation yesterday to open the mediation session. I knew there was a solid background to the PowerPoint and this gave me confidence that our argument was solid.
Great work. Thanks!”

“We have worked with Robert Gemmell for many years now. Robert is our preferred expert of choice on all things quantum.
Robert has assisted us to successfully recover and defend (as the case may be) multimillion-dollar prolongation, disruption, acceleration, and variation claims in multiple forums and jurisdictions.
Robert’s technical skills are excellent, plus he is easy to work with. That’s a rare combination.”

“The contribution of Aston to the Project has been remarkable starting when we won the Expert Determination in September 2017.
Your commercial contribution to the Project and the good integration that you and your people have done within our organization has doubtlessly been a key factor in our success.
Aston has a lot of involvement in many of our other projects and we would like to continue with this good relationship.”

“Aston’s consultant complemented the team on a number of projects in our regional portfolio during construction peaks and times when capacity was finite. Aston provided the highest standard of commercial support to our projects including: SOPA adjudications; upstream and downstream administration; revenue recovery strategy; and claims. The Aston resource was committed, hard-working and solutions oriented. His work ethic and resolve are assets to any project. I would recommend Aston to any contractor.”
National Commercial and Risk Manager – Tier 2 Contractor
“We engaged Aston on a major bridge construction project as experts to assess an extension of time and delay cost claim and to give some commercial advice. Dealing with an extremely complex situation and under a delivery partner model, Aston were able to defend our entitlements, providing us commercial advice in the first stage of our design & construction contract in order to deliver a very successful project for all the parties and stakeholders.”
