Internationally Respected Independent Experts

At CCi we supply our clients with objective advice which can often provide the catalyst to settle differences and reduce the risk associated with formal proceedings.

The principal issues that commonly give rise to disputes – time, tehnical, and money – are areas in which we have demonstrated world class expertise:

  • Technical experts in engineering and design disciplines
  • Delay, disruption, prolongation and acceleration analysis
  • Quantum assessments

Much of our business is generated through repeat appointments, and recommendations from our clients.

CCi provide a global network of delay, quantum and technical experts. All of our experts have a high level of expertise and direct industry experience. Our forensic analysis and opinions are provided in clear and concise expert reports. Our independent and impartial experts are trained in providing oral testimony in Court and for tribunals.

These three disciplines are intrinsically linked, and we believe that a client’s case is best served when all three disciplines are provided as an integrated service. This ensures that the exchange of information between delay, quantum and technical experts is efficient and effective.

Our experts are appointed to assist Courts as well as local and international arbitration Tribunals. Our experts also support adjudication and mediation proceedings.

CCi’s reports are supported by clear and concise evidence, backed by relevant and current industry knowledge. Our experts are accomplished in working collaboratively alongside clients and their legal teams.

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.

275kV Infrastructure Project

Location: UK

CCi was appointed as the quantum expert on behalf of the contractor on a dispute between it and the conductor supplier involving an alleged defective conductor and the financial consequences of it. The CCi expert prepared draft, joint and final reports for the High Court litigation liaising with instructing solicitors, witnesses of fact and the QC. They also advised on the Part 36 offer that was ultimately accepted by the other party shortly before trial.

PFI Acute Emergency Hospital Project

Location: UK

CCi was appointed to compile numerous claim documents for MEP design fees arising from revisions to the architectural BIM model. This involved working alongside legal counsel, barristers and technical experts in preparation for litigation.
