Projects in the North America

CCi have worked on hundreds of projects worldwide. With specialist teams in time, cost and technical, and a broad range of industry experience, we bring clarity to the most complex of situations.

Oil Refinery

Location: USA

A catastrophic failure of a heat exchanger resulted in extensive damage. CCi prepared a detailed delay analysis to establish whether non-incident related works prolonged the overall period of disruption. Consequently, the dispute was referred to arbitration, with CCi’s findings that incident related repairs were paced to match non-incident related maintenance works contributing to the eventual claim settlement prior to the hearing.

Manufacturing / Heavy Industry

Following a large explosion and subsequent fire at a chemical manufacturing plant CCi was appointed by insurers to assess the duration of repairs required to restore the plant to its pre-loss production capacity. CCi’s analysis identified a number of additional construction activities in the rebuild timeline that were not required to repair the property to the condition it was in prior to the loss and amounted to an improved design of the plant.

Potash Mine

Location: USA

A conveyor at a Potash mine that carried product to warehouses before it could be loaded onto trains and distributed to customers collapsed. The collapse required the actual conveyor to be rebuilt and repairs to one of the warehouses where the conveyor had collapsed through the roof. Due to operational preference, the Insured decided to rebuild the conveyor in a different configuration than what was presented prior to the event. The new configuration required additional permitting from regulatory bodies that would not have been required if the conveyor was rebuilt in the same configuration as before the collapse. CCi was retained to determine for Insurers whether the delays caused by the requirement to re-permit increased the interruption period being claimed by the Insured.
