Greg Holness - ARCADIS
Mr. Holness has more than 25 years of experience in construction and construction disputes. His previous work at a department of transportation, a large design-build curtainwall subcontractor, and several law firms, has given him multiple perspectives to draw upon when developing a successful strategy for resolving disagreements. As a professional engineer and an attorney, he has developed, analyzed and resolved claims related to schedule delay/acceleration/disruption, loss of productivity, and contract/specification interpretation on public and private projects, ranging from small but difficult to resolve matters to enormous multi-party litigation requiring days of dispute resolution to settle. In addition, Mr. Holness has drafted and negotiated hundreds of construction/design contracts in his career, so he is intimately knowledgeable on the key terms that often are central to disputes.
