Dispute Avoidance & Resolution in Engineering and Construction Projects

What to expect:

  • Analysis of dispute avoidance measures: traditional and more recently promoted.
  • Comparison of different claim and dispute resolution procedures – between the parties only or involving one or more third persons (court experts, mediators, adjudicators, arbitrators or ordinary courts).
  • Evaluation of the powers of intervening third parties: nature, power to determine extension of time, payment, ea.
  • Legal issues with alternative dispute resolution.
  • Discussion of the impact of the dispute procedure(s) on project management (organization) and budget.

So in short: sharing experiences, tips, tricks and lessons learned.
