Cost analysis and documentary proof for claims for damages owing to substantial cost increases
The compression-ring façade designed to lower energy consumption and enable window ventilation irrespective of the weather in connection with the fire protection requirements had led to construction costs far overshooting the budget. After the building was commissioned, CANZLER as the outside experts had to plausibilize the causes and cause of the cost overshoot for the technical equipment. This was needed on the one hand to form the basis for final agreements on the fee demanded by the planners and, on the other, to document transparency for the allocation of budgets and claims for damages against those that caused them. CANZLER then provided support in the consultations and negotiations with those involved in the project.
