Complex project, comprehensive approach

Soben addressed three assessment claims for Sunwater including: assessment of contractual claim and preparation of reports (force majeure), assessment of contractual claims in relation to change (foundations) and assessment of programme and preparation of programme to complete.

Our work involved a thorough examination of the contractual agreements, identifying instances where force majeure events had an impact, and preparing comprehensive reports.

Our experienced consultants have worked at the sharp end of contracting, commercially managing complex projects. Soben has been instrumental in commercial planning, procurement and execution of major utilities schemes around the globe, delivering value on over $5Bn of projects to date.


We only hire the best to deliver world-class cost, time and quality outcomes. All of our Managers have previous senior leadership experience within large contracting organisations.

Delivering on our promises

When assessing these claims for Sunwater, Soben’s expert team calculated the effect of events and reviewed contractor claims. We then prepared reports in response to all heads of claim. Soben’s report assessed the impact on the programme, with links to cause and effect, to calculate the remaining programme to complete and provide Sunwater with an accurate forecast of time remaining. 

Soben ensured all claims submitted by the contractor were in line with the contract in terms of time and cost. We provided an independent assessment of all claim items and gave our client substantiation for negotiation.

Where culture meets quality

We understand the complexity of major infrastructure projects, the need to manage expectations of multiple stakeholders. Our infrastructure expertise is focused on delivering efficient, cost effective, and future-proofed results.  

Soben offers something different – a combination of the best consultancy practices, with real-life hands-on commercial experience in delivering major construction projects.
