I. INTRODUCTION

Construction dispute resolution is self-evidently centred around issues arising from construction and engineering projects. The issues which typically arise on projects are many. Money may be unpaid for work performed. Work may have been performed late, or defectively, or both. Unforeseen issues may have arisen which bring the parties into conflict over who takes responsibility.
In all of these situations, the parties to the project will be in need of something: a way of resolving their dispute. It is ideal if a dispute may be resolved amicably, but if not it will need to be the subject of a form of binding adjudication – usually an arbitral tribunal, or a court. However, should matters reach a final, adjudicative forum, there is considerable scope for further disputes to arise – not as to the underlying issues in dispute, but in relation to matters that are ancillary or adjectival, yet represent critical cogs in the dispute resolution machine.
