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.

714MW Offshore Wind Farm

Location: UK

Supply delays relating to some of the turbine jackets were alleged to have resulted in a critical delay to the project. CCi was appointed to determine the true criticality of the delay event. Using a combination of ‘but for’ and windows-based time slice analysis, CCi identified significant levels of float and flexibility within the project’s scheduled sequence, which could not be determined through the claimant’s preferred delay methodology, and ultimately led to agreement that no critical delay would likely be experienced and that no claim would be presented.

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.

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.
