CAR / EAR & Builder’s Risk

Our team of professional Quantity Surveyors, Cost Consultants and Practicing Engineers accurately measure and value reinstatement/repair costs following property damage, with a proactive and transparent approach in delivering cost certainty.

Our team includes RICS accredited and chartered civil, structural, building services, geotechnical and commissioning engineers with a wealth of experience in project management, cost consultancy, contract negotiation and providing independent expert opinion.

We undertake a comprehensive review of project records and, where required, have the technical capability to assist in determining the most effective repair strategy/scope. 

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.

Combined Heat and Intelligent Power Plant (CHiP)

Location: UK

The Contractor entered into a D&B FIDIC form of contract and suffered over a year’s delay with the design, build and commissioning of the CHiP plant. CCi carried out an in-depth analysis tracing the design delays in respect of the employers operating philosophy of the plant, which linked to the delays suffered in construction and later the commissioning issues. CCi identified significant culpability and concurrency issues and, following advice, the two parties eventually settled.

Subsea Production Umbilicals

Location: Europe

Two damage events, both concerning cracking to the outer sheaths of the Umbilicals led to critical delay of the ‘load out’ milestone. CCi was appointed to assess the extent to which damage had delayed the project and to quantify associated liquidated damages. Utilising a time slice analysis, CCi’s analysis enabled a successful resolution of the claim.

Power Station

Location: USA

A significant fire damaged large sections of a partially constructed Power Plant. The Insured ultimately completed the project 18 months late and submitted a DSU claim for 18 months. CCi analysed the project schedules and identified non-loss related delay occurring after the date of loss. CCi established that due to the non-loss related delay, but for the event, the project would have completed 12 months late. As such, the loss had only caused an additional 6 months of delay to the Commercial Operation Date.
