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.

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.

Underground Potash Mine

Location: Thailand

During commissioning of the mine, an underground inrush flooded the mine causing damage. CCi undertook the monitoring and support of the recovery plan created by the insured to re-establish the underground operations and provided advice to the insurers on the ‘but for’ position.

LNG Plant

Location: USA

A named windstorm caused widespread damage to the construction of an LNG plant. Significant damage was caused to pipe that had been prefabricated and was waiting to be installed at the facility. CCi carried out an analysis of the delays incurred to the project prior to the storm and identified pre-storm delay that had not been accounted for in the forecast Commercial Operation Date (COD). In addition, CCi identified delays to the fabrication and installation of structural steel that meant the delay caused to the COD by having to replace pipe was much less than originally claimed by the Insured.
