About the event

Differences will always occur on construction projects and parties require solutions. Dispute avoidance methods and early intervention in construction disputes  can allow works to proceed without delay or extra costs. With increased investment in construction and infrastructure and the resurgence of the Irish construction industry, the need for practical guidance on dispute avoidance and non – litigious dispute resolution methods cannot be underestimated. This a rapidly developing area, internationally with FIDIC, ICC, CIArb and others promoting Dispute Avoidance Boards, and at home in Ireland with the introduction of Project Boards, Standing Conciliator in Public Works Contracts, and the increased use of mediation for construction disputes. Conference which is a collaboration between Engineers Ireland and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators – Irish Branch will give delegates information on developments in this area, in the Irish context and what is international best practice.
