The construction industry in Australia stands as a vibrant and crucial sector driving economic growth and development across the nation. With its diverse landscape booming urban centres and a robust infrastructure demand, the industry is pivotal in shaping the country's modern landscape.
Edited by academics who teach construction contracts and arbitration at the School of International Arbitration in London, GAR's Guide to Construction Arbitration pulls together both substantive and procedural sides of the subject in one volume. Across four parts, it moves from explaining the mechanics of FIDIC contracts and particular procedural questions that arise at the disputes stage, to how to organise an effective arbitration, before ending with a section on the specifics of certain contracts and of key countries and regions. The chapters are written by leaders in the field from both the civil and common law worlds and other relevant professions.
This fifth edition is fully up to date with the new FIDIC suites and includes chapters on expert witnesses, claims resolution, dispute boards, ADR, agreements to arbitrate, investment treaty arbitration and Canada. It is a must-have for anyone seeking to improve their understanding of construction disputes or construction law.
