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.
