Infrastructure Projects

CCi have worked on Infrastructure projects worldwide, here are some examples:

Puhoi to Warkworth Motorway

Location: Auckland, New Zealand

CCi provided Independent delay expert service for the Contractor. The project was delivered through Public-Private Partnership between the New Zealand Government and the Northern Express Group (NX2) to design and construct a four-lane highway with a central median safety barrier. The motorway is approximately 18.5 kilometres. CCI provided an independent review report assessing the delay and recovery periods following multiple covid rated delay and disruption events along with other major landslide issues.

Bruce Highway – Cairns Southern Access Corridor – Stage 3

Location: Cairns, Australia

CCi was engaged by the consortium contractor to review the collaborative project agreement (Contract), recommend a mechanism for time extension under the Contract, and assess the Contractor’s submitted extension of time and associated costs claim. The collaborative project agreement was a bespoke contract that is unique for the project and was not aligned with any of the common standard forms of contracts. CCi’s team developed a risk allocation matrix for the project and created flow charts for the contractual obligations in terms of extension of time notices and claims.

Tamworth 330KV Capacitor Banks and SVC Works

Location: Tamworth, Australia

CCi was engaged by the Subcontractor responsible for all civil and concrete works, to assess the contractual position in terms of extension of time entitlement and to produce a consolidated extension of time along with associated costs claim. CCi produced a compelling claim document that enabled the Subcontractor to recover over 80% of its claimed prolongation costs with an opportunity to negotiate the remainder. CCi’s experience was fundamental to the demonstration of the entitlement, production of the supporting evidence, and the negotiation of the settlement.
