Building contract claims for more time on projects represent one of the largest sources of dispute within the industry. However, identifying the causes of delays, and the effects they have on the project, is often difficult and the burden on the party seeking to prove delay is a heavy one. This book provides the construction professional with an analysis of how construction projects become delayed, the practical measures which can be taken to avoid such delays, and how the parties can protect their positions in the face of delays. It goes on to look at the requirements for producing a successful claim. It provides a straightforward guide to the legal issues, and also considers how the effects of delays can most practically be addressed. The Second Edition takes account of new case law since 1999, and has new sections on adjudication, risk allocations and the Society of Construction Law Delay Protocol. Very well received when it was first published, the book is aimed particularly at contractors, project managers and senior surveyors, but will also be of interest to construction lawyers.

Assembled from Dispute Resolution Journal - the flagship publication of the American Arbitration Association - the chapters in the Handbook have all, where necessary, been revised and updated prior to publication. The book is succinct, comprehensive and a practical introduction to the use of arbitration and ADR, written by leading practitioners and scholars. The Handbook begins with chapters on specific strategies and tools to help manage risks and avoid disputes in the construction field. It discusses ADR as it relates to subcontracting and labor disputes, the use of a neutral architect, the importance of site visits, and the significance of understanding ADR procedures before agreeing to them. The option of using mediation to resolve disputes is explored, including guidelines and tools for successful mediation, the expert’s role in construction mediation, and what works and what doesn’t work in construction disputes. The use of arbitration is also looked at in depth and guidance is provided for both the arbitrator and for the advocate. There is an entire section devoted to partnering (the creation of a working relationship between a building owner and a contractor which further involves subcontractors, design professionals, and other agencies), discussing its benefits and providing useful tips. Lastly, advice is provided for both small and complex construction claims, and the use of Dispute Review Boards (comprising panels of three technically qualified neutral individuals). The chapters were selected from an extensive body of writings and, in the main, represent world-class assessments of arbitration and ADR practice. All the major facets of the field are addressed and provide the reader with comprehensive and accurate information, lucid evaluations, and an indication of future developments. They not only acquaint, but also ground the reader in the field.

The Expert Witness In Construction Disputes

The role of the expert witness has long been important in construction litigation and arbitration and most other types of dispute resolution. Today there is a heavier burden on experts because of the diversity of the appropriate dispute process and the added responsibility this brings. The Woolf reforms and the introduction of the Civil Procedure Rules are having a major impact on the role of the expert witnesses. No longer is the expert accountable just to the client but directly owes a duty to the court. In the smaller value claim a new opportunity of acting as single joint expert arises where the parties can save time and money. There is greater flexibility in arbitration under the Arbitration Act 1996 and a need for expert evidence in the statutory process of adjudication. This book takes account of all these changes, taking the expert stage by stage through his or her duties, from the investigation, preparation and exchange of expert reports, disclosure of documents, the importance of different types of evidence, to preparation for the hearing itself and the giving of oral evidence. The appendices feature appropriate references to the Civil Procedure Rules, guidelines for experts, protocols and other materials of practical interest. Throughout, reference is made to relevant case law.
