Rowfield’s Experts

Rowfield’s Experts

Expert evidence is a much-discussed subject in UK legal and construction media. There has been a steady flow of cases where Judges have publicly criticised the conduct of Expert Witnesses and their failure to adhere to their duty[1] [2]. Indeed, an expert’s conduct can result in an adverse costs order being awarded against their own client[3]. This clearly damages the client’s reputation, as well as their case.

Rowfield consultants, are RICS Registered Expert Witnesses as a minimum. All have been assessed and certified by the RICS as competent authors of expert reports, who are comfortable under cross-examination. Prior to being included on the RICS Register of Expert Witnesses, they all passed the RICS Expert Witness Competency Interview.

As Chartered Surveyors, Rowfield fully adheres to RICS guidance: Surveyors Acting as Expert Witnesses, 4th Edition. You can appoint our experts to provide opinion evidence on quantum assessment, extensions of time, loss and expense, true account valuation and/or professional negligence.

Rowfield have dedicated quantum and contract administration experts specialising in civil engineering, mechanical & electrical, power, infrastructure, utilities, rail and traditional building construction; offices, retail, commercial, private housing, mixed-use, healthcare, sport & leisure, hotel and hospitality.

We also work with a wider network of highly respected technical experts on a consultancy basis.
