Nigel Shelton

Associate Director


Nigel Shelton has over 30 years of expertise providing project management, project controls, claims services, and consulting advice in projects involving complex industrial construction, high-rise residential, infrastructure, commercial, public works, institutional, mining, petrochemical, and power. Mr. Shelton directs work in both project controls/project management and project disruption/claims.

Mr. Shelton’s project controls’ experience is strengthened by construction claims specialties: disruption caused by incomplete scope, scope change, delay, acceleration, permitting, trade conflict, breach of contract, and unknown conditions. His in-depth knowledge of both traditional project controls and construction claims brings best practices that avoid or contain potential project risks.

Mr. Shelton’s clientele include public and private owners, developers, prime contractors, major subcontractors, sureties, and their counsel, as well as engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM), petroleum, and mining companies.
