Construction and engineering: look forward to 2022
As one year ends and another begins, now is the perfect time to reflect on some of the key changes in the construction sector over the last 12 months and the challenges to be faced in the year ahead. In this short series of new year inspired video blogs, the construction and engineering team aim to bring you quickly up to speed with these developments and provide you with practical, effective advice that you can look to incorporate into your projects going forward. Covering a range of topics from building regulations and standard-form contracts to adjudication and alternative dispute resolution, these will be relevant to all parties involved in the construction industry.
In episode 5, Lauren Melnyk looks at alternative dispute resolution processes and the UK Ministry of Justice’s call for evidence on how dispute resolution processes can be more fully integrated in the justice system. Lauren discusses the potential move in the direction of mandatory ADR and what this may look like for construction disputes going forward.
