The construction industry is unique. It is normal for a construction project to be a prototype and for various technical disciplines and construction specialists to be brought together to achieve the desired result. The participants come from numerous commercial organisations bringing with them a variety of skills, work cultures, practices, demands and ethics. These relationships are sometimes the catalyst for conflict.

In the world of construction, events occur during the design and build process that impact on quality, cost and time causing the various participants up and down the supply chain to have different opinions about liability and risk. These issues, if not resolved by negotiation and compromise, may escalate into the protagonists taking formal positions and the need for specialists to resolve the matter.

Commercial enterprises are then faced with selecting which dispute resolution technique is the most appropriate for their particular circumstances to expediently and cost effectively resolve the matters falling to be determined.


Nigel is a specialist in UK and international dispute avoidance and resolution techniques bringing together a unique set of qualifications and experience acting as

a construction professional and tribunal.
