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.

Ferrochrome Smelter

Location: Kazakhstan

A catastrophic breakout of molten metal caused significant damage to the construction of the ferrochrome melt shop. CCi was appointed as delay expert to objectively separate critical delay from the breakout and delays resultant from ongoing procurement issues for key equipment located elsewhere in the project. CCi conducted a ‘but for’ assessment of the project status based on contemporaneous information and a detailed review of ‘pacing’. Both assessments contributed to a successful claim settlement.

Light Railway Project

Location: UK

CCi was appointed as quantum and delay experts to provide opinion on delays and extensions of time, together with the assessment of the Final Account. The team ensured that the delay and extension of time analysis was presented in a way that clearly showed the delays and entitlements to time and was also readily usable in quantum assessments. The matter was on track for litigation but was settled in subsequent mediation in which the experts played a prominent role.

International Airport

Location: Oman

Post-tender advice to specialist contractor on FIDIC Yellow Book 1999 provisions as amended by particular conditions regarding schedule of prices, change and valuation of change prior to executing contracts.
