Projects

CCi have worked on hundreds of projects worldwide. With specialist teams in time, cost and technical, across a broad range of industry experience, we bring clarity to the most complex of situations.

Desalination Plant

Location: Australia

Seven independent delay events were claimed to have impacted the critical path during the project to increase the desalination facilities’ annual output from 50 to 100 billion litres annually. Without formal delay preparation from the insured, CCi critically analysed the insured’s project schedules and contemporaneous progress records to independently verify the actual impact of the seven delay events over and above the delay that the project would have suffered without the seven incidents.

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.

London Underground Line Extension Project (Crossrail)

Location: UK

CCI was appointed to provide commercial support and key performance and cost indicators to the executive board. This involved managing and reporting on change, risk and forecasts, assisting with identification and resolution of potential claims using negotiation and avoidance techniques.
