How Do We Resolve Construction Project Disputes?

March 2021 / Singapore



A typical construction project usually comprises transactions with high complexity. Also, a diversity of interests of many parties are in- volved including the developer, main contractor, sub-contractors and professionals e.g. architects, quantity surveyors, engineers, LCDWs and LEWs, etc. Inevitably, over time, disputes due to conflicts and disagreements about the construction work and progress payments can arise. It is therefore important that the disputes can be resolved as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary work stop- page, time lost and cost-overrun, just to name a few.
