About CCR

Company Overview

It was our common goal as well as our joint drive for industry excellence that brought Guardian Property & Construction (GPC) and Construction Claims Consultants together to create Contract & Commercial Resources (CCR).

The merging of these two industry specialists into one concentrated commercial practice marked a fresh approach to construction projects across Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Together as CCR, we now deliver a full suite of consultancy and resourcing solutions to serve as the backbone of any construction and engineering work.

CCR provides a comprehensive range of construction and engineering services managed by our highly qualified teams of engineers, quantity surveyors, project managers, commercial managers and legal advisors.

We are more than able to successfully manage and deliver on both domestic and international projects utilising our expertise in, contract and commercial advice, procurement, estimating, planning and scheduling, claims preparation, construction management, dispute resolution, and more. Our core priority is to effectively transform traditional engineering and construction projects into commercially successful, sustainable business infrastructure which directly benefit both our clients and partners. Our expertise and unparalleled track record in both visionary project consultancy and advanced resourcing management has established our reputation in the field.

Story 4

Cash flow is the life blood of any construction company. CCR understand the need to resolve disputes quickly and inexpensively and regularly assist construction companies with Security of Payment applications in all states of Australia and New Zealand. Our experience in the various forms of the legislation is extensive with claim values ranging from ten thousand to one hundred and fifty million. Since the inception of the company in 2008 we, on average, adjudicate circa $12,000,000 pa and successfully guide our clients to a binding agreement that avoids expensive and time consuming Court proceedings.

Story 3

Delays in complex construction projects are inevitable. A substantial proportion of CCR’s work entails supporting our clients with the factual matrix to mitigate the risk of delay damages, and at the same time identifying the true cost of a delay event to secure compensation. We implement management processes that allows us to focus on the cost relative to the event and avoid the common assertion of global claims.

Story 2

CCR has become increasingly involved in the preparation of Professional Indemnity type claims against designers. The design issues are normally driven by poor design consultant performance, stemming from either; (1) designs being provided later than planned; and also (2) provided in a deficient manner whereby they should properly be considered as not fit for purpose. In the current climate, CCR is seeing more of these types of claims being brought to the fore. As a result, we have developed a specific template to effectively deal with them. CCR’s depth of experience and expertise in this field puts us in a strong position to deliver a successful outcome for Professional Indemnity claims of this nature.

Story 1

Environment & consenting type issues can cause significant delays to a project’s timeline. A situation of this nature was recently encountered in a large civil infrastructure project where the impacts of these issues were not as clear cut as traditional delay & disruption type activities. Not only did CCR discover the contractual hook to provide entitlement for the Contractor, but we also delivered upon simple techniques to enable the parties to visualise the impacts of these upfront client driven issues, paving the way to the commercial success for the Contractor.
