- Claims Construction Analysis. We are responsible for the oversight of the APM Systems Contractor's construction activities for   any potential impacts/delays in order to mitigate effects, by early recognition, on the overall project schedule and cost.   Analysis of issues for merit and entitlement is provided. For all projects, we review technical and construction issues for possible   impacts associated with delays, disruptions, inefficiencies, acceleration or other factors and establish merit and entitlement   along with coordinating with the PMC Design Engineering Group as necessary. Analysis and evaluation of claim or disputed   issues is performed and the findings of fact and recommendations are provided to the project's Site Manager, Assistant Site   Managers or Resident Engineer, as appropriate. Issues with merit are forwarded by the Resident Engineer. Sample tasks:

- Building Modifications to Accommodate In-Line Baggage This project includes a 60k SF structural addition in front of the Terminal   B/C to house baggage handling equipment for in line check in. The structure is a single story building. The baggage system   includes three pods to provide each ticket counter conveyor line and curbside conveyor line pair with dedicated EDS device. 

- Main Terminal Baggage Basement Security Alterations (West, East and South) The West Basement consists of a complete design   integration of in-line EDS/ETD screening equipment with baggage system. West basement project supports airport operations   activities generated at Kiosk 1 (80k SF).
