Dispute resolution for construction professionals


Even with the careful drafting of contracts and the best will in the world, costly disputes can still arise on construction projects large or small

Adjudication is designed to safeguard the cash flow of businesses in these situations, but it is not the end of the story.

Dispute resolution in the construction industry

In this ebook, Gateley Vinden expert Neil Boothroyd offers a range of insights focused on dispute resolution in the construction industry.

First, Neil looks at the options for keeping costs down during a dispute, reflecting on His Honour Judge Stephen Davis’ suggestions set out in the case of The Sky’s the Limit Transformation Lrd v Dr Mohammed Mirza earlier this year.

How can mandatory and affordable access to justice be provided quickly?

Neil then examines the case of Bexheat Limited v Essex Services Group Limited, which raised a key issue relating to whether a “true value” adjudication can be binding on a subsequent interim valuation.

Next, he considers a recent reminder of the importance of calculating the period of days, excluding bank holidays, in adjudications.

Neil Boothroyd is an adjudicator, arbitrator and mediator who specialises in construction conflict avoidance with more than 25 years’ contracting experience in the industry.
