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.

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.

61MW Onshore Wind Farm

Location: UK

The Super Grid Transformer suffered delay during transit which led to critical delays to the phased handover of the plant. CCi was appointed as the delay expert to help quantify the extent to which the project had suffered delay to its commercial operation date as a result of damage. Working with very limited available information, CCi worked collaboratively and flexibly with the insured to establish the overall project status and achieve a successful settlement of the claim.

High-Rise Construction

Location: USA

Two separate water intrusion events occurred during the construction of a high-rise residential building in New York City. The Insured submitted a delay claim for 13 months of delay to the completion date because of the first event. CCi was retained by underwriters to determine the delay caused by each event to the completion date. CCi’s analysis established that contract works, that had not been impacted by either of the Insured events, was causing critical delay to the completion date. Although each individual event had caused a delay, the critical delay was due to remaining contract works. As such, CCi established if the events had not occurred, the completion date would not have been improved from what was actually achieved.
