Construction projects may fall short of their intended goals. TCU Consulting Services provides services to attorneys engaged in addressing these shortfalls. We provide research, analysis, reports and testimony in such areas as: design documents review, design and construction schedules, construction sequencing, means and methods components, change orders, best practices, quality control, construction policies and procedures, budget and construction cost reviews. TCU provides attorney’s with access to the construction experience and the expertise required to properly serve the clients needs.
TCU’s staff includes architects, professional engineers and seasoned construction personnel with combined construction experience totaling more than 400 years.

Our experience makes TCU an unparalleled resource for construction expertise when the need arises.
