Houston, TX (September 12, 2016) This month, Houston-based Interface Consulting International, Inc., celebrates its 30th anniversary providing claims and expert services on construction projects around the globe.

Since its inception in 1986, Interface has served contractors and owners involved in construction disputes, contract claims, and litigation, working on more than 1,000 projects in over 60 countries. The firm recently assisted a client in Africa whereby three of its experts testified in a complex multinational dispute in an International Chamber of Commerce, International Court of Arbitration hearing in Paris, France. Those three Interface experts, Frank G. Adams, PE; Philip D. Barnard, PE, CCP; and Christopher J. Sullivan have collectively testified as construction and engineering experts involving schedule delay analysis, reduced labor productivity, change order assessment, and contract damages in over 100 civil trials, and domestic and international arbitrations.

Internationally recognized for its expert services, Interface is called on by firms involved in arbitrations under the forums of the London Court of International Arbitration, International Chamber of Commerce, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, the International Centre for Dispute Resolution, and the American Arbitration Association. The firm also assists clients in litigation in state, federal, and chancery courts. The firm’s employees are engineers, management consultants, technical editors, quality control experts, and contract administrators who have devoted their careers to “getting into trouble” to aid clients involved in construction disputes. Interface’s steady growth in the expert services industry produced record earnings in 2015. While the company provides consulting and expert services to numerous construction sectors, the firm specializes in the oil and gas, refinery, offshore, and marine industries.

Frank Adams, the firm’s president commented, “Even after 30 years and getting into trouble on behalf of our clients, we are continually improving and adding to our expert service capabilities to address our clients’ construction project concerns and difficulties.”
