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.

MOPUstor Platform

Location: Norway

Defects identified during the grouting of the platform’s jack-up system were claimed to be the reason behind termination of the project’s construction contract. Appointed as the delay expert in litigation proceedings in the High Court, CCi’s analysis ultimately determined that an under estimation of the offshore installation scope would have resulted in a significant delay to the project in any event and contributed to the successful settlement of the claim prior to the hearing.

187MW Hydro Power Plant

Location: Europe

Following the collapse of the project’s headrace tunnel, CCi was appointed as the delay expert to produce an analysis that would eventually facilitate a mediated settlement. CCi used a combination of a windows analysis and a modelled hypothetical critical path to identify the difference between the project’s actual duration and the project’s ‘but for’ duration, had the tunnel’s defects been rectified immediately prior to the collapse.

Tunnel Drive Project

Location: UK

A tunnel drive of several kilometres with associated shafts and bore pits encountered unexpected physical conditions. CCi was appointed as quantum expert in an ICC arbitration working alongside various technical experts. This involved ascertaining the effect on production and costs in tunnelling through unforeseeable conditions versus pre-construction site investigation reports.
