Description - Arbitration Practice in Construction Contracts by Douglas A. Stephenson
Arbitration has been the accepted means of dispute resolution in the construction industry since the early development of the contract system. The first edition of the Institution of Civil Engineers' General Conditions of Contract for Civil Engineering Works , published in 1945, included provision for arbitration; and all subsequent editions, together with derivatives of those forms, and corresponding standard forms of contract in the building industry, have made similar provision. Despite the universal use of arbitration in resolving the construction industry disputes few of the engineers, architects, quantity surveyors and managers invovled in such disputes understand how they should proceed. Instead they abdicate their management functions to lawyers, who understand the law but often do not understand construction. This book seeks to promote better understanding of arbitration procedures by construction practitioners, so that they need not feel obliged to employ lawyers, especially in dealing with minor disputes. In larger disputes, where lawyers are appointed, a better understanding of arbitration procedures by managers will help them to make wise decisions
