Projects

Our experts are strategically based around the globe to deliver analysis and determinations to assist in resolving insurance claims and construction disputes. With specialist teams in time, cost and technical, and a broad range of industry experience, we bring clarity to the most complex of situations.

730MW Ultra-supercritical Coal Fired Power Station

Originally suffering a catastrophic failure of the transformer, the project suffered several delay events, including 13 instances of damage. CCi worked with the project team to establish the likely benefit of the proposed mitigation measure regarding the utilisation of a spare transformer. In addition, CCi reviewed the project’s contemporaneous records to establish the true impact of the 13 critical incidents to arrive at a successful settlement of compensation and delay entitlement.

187MW Hydro Power Plant

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.

Vanadium Mine

Following fire damage at the world’s largest vanadium mine, two divergent hypothetical timelines emerged relating to the redesigned reinstatement of the beneficiation process plant. CCi was appointed in a joint expert capacity to assess and provide recommendations against the two timelines. CCi conducted a probabilistic analysis to help determine which of the hypothetical timelines was the most realistic.

7.5 Hectare Central Business District Development

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.

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.
