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.

7.5 Hectare Central Business District Development

Location: Australia

CCi was appointed to quantify delay suffered to the construction of two commercial towers (43 and 39 floors respectively) in Sydney’s Central Business District (CBD) following a fire within the shared basement. Utilising a combination of windows analysis and collapsed as-built, CCi successfully identified productivity losses that were wholly unrelated to the fire and had overstated the fire’s critical path impact leading to a successful claim settlement.

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.
