Dr. Muaz Fagiar

Contract Management & Claims Specialist, SMA


Dr. Muaz Fagiar provides project support in the areas of project management, claims and dispute management, process improvement, construction engineering, and simulation. His work at SMA covers a wide range of tasks, including developing simulation models, project controls, forensic construction schedule reviews, contract and claims analysis, and applying data-mining techniques to solve large construction problems. As a Research Assistant at the University of Alberta (U of A), Muaz helped develop a number of simulation research projects in conjunction with SMA.

During his time at the U of A, Muaz worked as a teaching assistant for contract administration and project management courses and led the U of A’s team at the Simulation Exploration Experience (an event run by NASA and the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization), winning two awards for the team’s simulation of a waste management facility using modular construction and 3D printing.  In 2019, Muaz successfully defended his PhD on Forensic Schedule Information Modeling for Analysis of Time Claims in Construction Projects.
