PFC provides Construction Defects and Destructive Testing expert services for litigation

  • Statistical sampling and extrapolation is a key part of destructive testing and many construction defects cases. The PFC statistics team can create and supervise or evaluate sampling plans including detailed plans at the anticipated level of testing.
  • Bias and error can be introduced when randomized lists are not diligently followed. When individuals on randomized lists are not tested, the reasons need to be researched to determine the extent to which the resulting tests remain statistically representative of the entire population.
  • Statistical analysis of class lists in related cases can be used to determine potential participation bias. Surveys, questionnaires, and focus groups can also be used.
