Projects

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 & 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.

Bridge Project

Location: USA

Construction of a bridge spanning the Ohio River was delayed as a result of flooding from a high river event. CCi was retained by underwriters to investigate the amount of delay caused to the project completion date by repairing damage from the flood. CCi’s analysis showed that while the flood had caused critical delay to the project completion date at the time of the loss, delays to procurement of sections of the bridge after the loss meant ultimately the flood caused no actual delay to the project completion date.

FPSO

Location: Latin America

Two FPSO’s were constructed at yards in Central America and fitted out in ports in Latin America. The Projects overran in both time and cost, resulting in claims exceeding US$1bn. Detailed quantum investigations were undertaken, tens of thousands of cost files in multiple languages were analysed, and a final figure presented for Arbitration. Then at a New York venue, expert evidence was given and was well received by a panel of three international arbitrators.
