About this Project
CDC provided ongoing contractual advice, claims management and preparation for the fabrication and erection of the roof structure, fixed link air bridges and various other building elements acting for the contractor and in house fabrication subcontractor. CDC undertook delay analysis for the roof fabrication and erection claims and prepared position papers regarding missing items for various steel items. CDC also prepared claims in relation to disruption to the crusher plant for re-use of on-site rock materials for use in permanent aprons and taxi ways due to late issue of statutory permits and approvals and resequencing of the works.
Midfield Terminal at Hong Kong International Airport
CDC represented the contractor and in-house fabrication subcontractor in negotiations with the client (AAHK). CDC directed a multi-disciplinary team (15 people) preparing for the negotiations and advocating for the contractor in negotiations, preparing and delivering presentations to the client. These presentations consolidated claims for the contractor, the in-house structural steel fabricator, and the roofing subcontractor.
CDC also provided claim support to the main contractor with regard to the management of change, variation account and subcontractor issues. CDC was also engaged by the main contractor to undertake a windows delay analysis to demonstrate the criticality of the main elements of the works in order to substantiate and recover the costs of acceleration measures for the works and demonstrate the critical path. This led to further research work on delays to the civil structure and ABWF works.
CDC’s role was further expanded to manage preparations for the final account mediation on the project final account dispute leading a team of approximately 40 people comprising GCL and CDC staff as well as external consultants, lawyers and expert witnesses. The mediation covered all disciplines from ground conditions, civil and structural, building finishes, airfield works and E & M and involved advising on strategy, expert support, legal input, direction of GCL staff, CDC and other consultants. CDC was responsible for preparing the position paper on all issues, managing the preparation of presentations, delivering presentations on many of the key principle issues before a world leading mediator. The mediation was successfully settled after a two-week hearing and follow up negotiations.
