His practice is concentrated on assisting owners, contractors and other construction professionals on implementing effective project controls and in the development, analysis and resolution of major construction and public contract disputes.
Over his career, Mr. Gaudion has consulted with clients on virtually every type of major construction project in the United States, South America, Africa, the Caribbean and the Middle East. Mr. Gaudion has also provided advice on how to avoid disputes to both owners and contractors on several large “mega-projects”. Should disputes arise, Mr. Gaudion has many years of experience in performing delay analysis and quantifying the effects of delay, disruption and interference and has testified in arbitration (both ICC and AAA forums), dispute review board proceedings, deposition and mediation. In addition, Mr. Gaudion has advised clients on best-practices for project controls and provided seminars on practical project documentation and claims avoidance.
Mr. Gaudion has particular experience on industrial construction projects in the mining, oil and gas and power generation sectors. Mr. Gaudion's project experience has included cost and schedule advice on multi-billion mega-projects to providing expert testimony on disputes in excess of $1 billion.

Additionally, Mr. Gaudion has consulted on several healthcare facilities, major wastewater treatment programs, several power generation projects in Massachusetts, Colorado, Iowa, Missouri and West Africa, amounting to well over 2,500 MW of generating capacity and 22 miles of hard-rock tunnel with a combined construction value of over $500 million. In the government contracting sector, Mr. Gaudion has advised clients on several aviation, aerospace and shipbuilding programs.
Mr. Gaudion was appointed Project Controls Manager for a Global Fortune 500 company developing a $1.9 billion copper and cobalt production facility in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This project included 126km of carbon steel and stainless piping, numerous carbon and stainless steel tank structures, and structural steel throughout the plant. Mr. Gaudion’s responsibilities on this project included management of all schedule and budget related issues, including performance measurement, cost analysis, schedule updating and reporting, cost estimating, cash flow analysis, contract administration and the negotiation of changes and claims.
