CONSTRUCTION DYNAMICS SOLUTIONS

CONSTRUCTION DYNAMICS SOLUTIONS LLC is a specialised consultancy dedicated to the assessment of disruption and delay on major construction projects. CDS’ analytical approach, Dynamic Disruption and Delay Analysis (‘D3A’), brings together a profound understanding of the construction world, and leading-edge expertise in System Dynamics project simulation.

Conceived strictly as a niche consultancy, CDS has achieved a global reach through cooperation agreements with local consultancies around the world, from the Americas to Australia. This degree of focus has allowed us to become world leaders in our field, while still offering our clients a full set of project-related skills and expertise they need, wherever they may be.

Since its inception in 2017, CDS has already been retained to support major disruption and delay disputes with a total value in excess of $1.5bn. CDS is currently also participating in a government-sponsored research programme to reduce disruption and delay risk on future complex engineering projects.

OUR PRINCIPALS

Sam Mattar, Managing Director

With over 40 years’ experience in the construction industry, Sam has been engaged as an engineer, project manager, professor, claims lead and arbitration support – in North America, Europe and the MENA region.

OUR MISSION: ADDRESSING DISRUPTION HEAD ON

Most large construction and engineering projects end up facing large and unexpected time and money overruns. The cause for this is disruption, which is all too often forgotten, misunderstood, or simply ignored.

At Construction Dynamics Solutions we pay attention to disruption, understanding where it comes from, how it spreads… and what can be done to prevent it.

OUR APPROACH: SYSTEM DYNAMICS

System Dynamics is a computer-based simulation method originally developed at M.I.T. that has been used to assess disruption and delay on the world’s most complex construction and engineering projects.
Based on a causal framework that describes how project changes and decisions drive unintended consequences, SD simulation models are able to capture the full non-linearity of project dynamics.
