Dispute Resolution in Construction Management is a manual for students and those in the construction industry who need to know how to avoid disputes and how to resolve them if they arise.

Building disputes are a common problem in the construction industry. Up until the early 1990’s most attempts to resolve these disputes were made only after they had arisen. Today there is a growing emphasis on dispute prevention.

This book - the lastest in the UNSW Press Construction Management series - provides a review of building disputes in a number of areas. It:

*sets out simple steps to minimise chance of dispute;
*studies the relationship of participants in the construction dispute and how to maximise communication between them;
*reviews the role of courts and arbitration in dispute settlement;
*offers a "how to" of negotiation skills and their use in mediation; &
*reviews dispute avoidance systems, like partnering and alliancing.
