Humber Pipeline Tunnel

The construction of a 5km National Grid replacement tunnel 30m below the Humber Estuary supplying a quarter of the UK’s national gas became the largest and longest hydraulically inserted gas pipeline and was the heaviest moving man-made object. The JV Contractors suffered a year’s delay leading up to the launch of the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM). CCi was engaged to forensically look at the reasons for the delays under the NEC3 form of contract. It resulted in the JV and National Grid negotiating a settlement as the works continued.

Steel Plant

The exhaust pipe from the top of a steel furnace collapsed through the roof and required repair before the furnace could return to production. During the demolition of the damaged structure, the crane removing debris overturned and caused additional damage and delay. CCi was appointed by Insurer’s to analyse the repair timeline and determine whether the second event had caused an increase to the interruption period of the furnace. CCi established the date the repairs should have completed if the second event had not occurred, and the additional delay caused by repairing damage from the second event.

Tunnel Drive Project

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.

Ground Engineering and Geotechnical Pre-construction Services Project (HS2)

CCi was appointed to provide claims management support on the largest geotechnical ground investigation programme in Europe, delivered from commencement to final account.

Oil Refinery

A catastrophic failure of a heat exchanger resulted in extensive damage. CCi prepared a detailed delay analysis to establish whether non-incident related works prolonged the overall period of disruption. Consequently, the dispute was referred to arbitration, with CCi’s findings that incident related repairs were paced to match non-incident related maintenance works contributing to the eventual claim settlement prior to the hearing.
