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.

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.

FPSO

Location: Latin America

Two FPSO’s were constructed at yards in Central America and fitted out in ports in Latin America. The Projects overran in both time and cost, resulting in claims exceeding US$1bn. Detailed quantum investigations were undertaken, tens of thousands of cost files in multiple languages were analysed, and a final figure presented for Arbitration. Then at a New York venue, expert evidence was given and was well received by a panel of three international arbitrators.

Shangri-La Hotel in The Shard

Location: London

The prestigious fit out of the Shangri La hotel within the Shard tower had many employer design issues and a contractor defect issue which resulted in the termination of the contract. CCi carried out a detailed time slice windows analysis to identify both the employer delay events and contractor performance and defect issues. Following a mediation, the employer started proceedings to the Technology & Construction Court, though within two months of the mediation the parties agreed a negotiated settlement.
