Steel Plant

Location: USA

The exhaust pipe from the top of a steel furnace collapsed through the roof and required repair before the furnace could return to production. During the demolition of the damaged structure, the crane removing debris overturned and caused additional damage and delay. CCi was appointed by Insurer’s to analyse the repair timeline and determine whether the second event had caused an increase to the interruption period of the furnace. CCi established the date the repairs should have completed if the second event had not occurred, and the additional delay caused by repairing damage from the second event.

Oil & Gas

Location: Canada

At the procurement stage of an Oil Sands Project, worked with the Owner’s Supply Chain and Legal departments over two years to prepare requests for proposal and draft, negotiate and resolve construction contracts.

1600MW Coal Fired Power Station

Location: USA

Following catastrophic failure of the ID fan, CCi was appointed to analyse the project’s rebuild schedule and to conduct a ‘health check’ assessing the schedule’s suitability with regards to supporting the overall project management process and assisting with the claim. CCi also established the project’s pre-incident position, identifying delays to the scheduled date for the start of commercial operations and verified resultant delays from damage to achieve a successful settlement of the claim.
