Arbitration remains the primary method of resolving disputes in the construction sector, especially for complicated and large-scale projects. However, parties often find the procedure daunting and even harder as time goes on. This book is intended for construction industry professionals who must decide whether to submit a matter for arbitration, including employers, contractors, and their advisors.
From the perspective of the parties, the preparation, presentation, and process management of each party's arbitration case are the main points of emphasis. The book looks at the variables that increase the expense and duration of arbitration proceedings; many of these variables are controllable to a large degree by the parties. These considerations include the practical aspects of choosing an arbitrator, counsel, and managing the copious amounts of paperwork and materials that have come to define construction arbitrations.

Among the 16 chapters are chapters discussing –
  • Development of the case theory and arbitrator selection are covered in Commencement Matters (Chapter 3).
  • Management of procedural matters and documentation is covered in Conduct of Proceedings (Chapter 4).
  • Chapter 5, "Management of Costs in Arbitration," discusses cost management and cost-saving strategies.
  • Documents and Evidence (Chapter 6): assembling and classifying evidence, production requests, and bundles of hearings.
  • Statements and Pleadings (Chapter 7): crafting the memorials approach, pleadings, and cause papers.
  • Chapter 8 covers Factual Witnesses, including witness selection, witness statement preparation, and examination procedures.
  • Expert Evidence (Chapter 9): expert selection, expert instruction, and expert evidence presentation.
  • Chapter 11 covers payments and variations, Chapter 12 covers delays and time extensions, and Chapter 13 deals with termination.
Additional chapters include topics such as Written Submissions (Chapter 10), The Award (Chapter 14), Arbitration Agreement and Construction Standard Forms (Chapter 2), Interim Measures (Chapter 15), and Other Modes of Dispute Resolution (Chapter 16).
