Construction projects are all about the details, having a novice handle one is definitely not advisable as big projects such as those are best left to professionals who have years of experience to be able to properly decide what the firm needs to do; however, these professionals are human too and can overlook some details that turn out to be crucial for the project’s success. These firms would normally employ a third party construction expert witness to oversee the progress of the project as well as its initial plans to pre-emptively sort out potential problems in the future.
