Academy Avenue/FCTA Forensic Engineering Study

In 2009, the Fresno County Transportation Authority’s legal counsel hired PQM to prepare an independent recommendation in an effort to resolve an inter-agency funding dispute. The process and methods used to determine the cause and effect, cost distribution, and recommendation demonstrated our ability to think forward for preventative occurrence.
We used Project Management and Six Sigma Black Belt skills to approach the problem. We prepared a recommendation and analytical fault analysis to distribute shared responsibility between the parties involved. The lawsuit was settled without court action. The study saved the public agency approximately $1M or 20% of the construction budget.
