    Hello Karen.

    I am a construction claims expert. I do it for a living.

    It's a broad subject so what are your ideas? Managing claims from whose perspective? - a client who is trying to avoid them (then your dissertation should be on something like post contract claims avoidance management, or the selection of procurement strategies for claims avoidance ) or a contractor/subcontractor who is trying to use them to increase his margins (then your dissertation might be on something like early claims identification, claims identification software (claims mining) or productivity analysis)

    Where do you want to go with this?

    It's a very unusual topic for an undergraduate to have a crack at because claims work is very complex and it's rare to find anybody with less than 15 years experience who knows much about it. It's a niche. Fair play to you for trying though - much more interesting than the 5000 dissertations on safety or the impact of BIM that will no doubt be submitted this year!

    I'll be happy to read through and offer any advice on your proposals. No charge!
