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.

PFI Acute Emergency Hospital Project

Location: UK

CCi was appointed to compile numerous claim documents for MEP design fees arising from revisions to the architectural BIM model. This involved working alongside legal counsel, barristers and technical experts in preparation for litigation.

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.

275kV Infrastructure Project

Location: UK

CCi was appointed as the quantum expert on behalf of the contractor on a dispute between it and the conductor supplier involving an alleged defective conductor and the financial consequences of it. The CCi expert prepared draft, joint and final reports for the High Court litigation liaising with instructing solicitors, witnesses of fact and the QC. They also advised on the Part 36 offer that was ultimately accepted by the other party shortly before trial.
