Haag Canada, a multidisciplinary forensic engineering consulting firm specializing in large, complex loss, announced the launch of its construction claims group. The new team will provide a full service offering to Canadian insurance and legal communities.

According to Haag Canada’s press release, the construction claims group consolidates traditional construction claims experts and forensic engineering subject matter experts to provide independent counsel on claims covering all industry sectors. This service model was first introduced to the Canadian market by Haag Canada, CEO Chris Giffin in 2014. 

“The launch of our construction claims group marks another decisive forward step in providing a growing selection of forensic engineering services that are currently in high demand in Canada,” Giffin said in the news release. “I’m excited to bring construction claims and forensic engineering together to create a mould-breaking service offering that stands to benefit the Canadian construction industry.”

An extensive global recruitment drive has thus far culminated in the appointment of Haag Canada’s foundational construction claims experts: Derek Sayers, MRICS, MSCL, practice lead construction claims (quantum) expert; Alan Rustom, M.Sc., MCIArb, MED, senior civil construction claims engineer; and Jonathan E. McNatty, PSP, senior construction claims (delay) expert.
