Construction claims disputes often involve complex issues due to the nature of construction works as well as the involvement of many different stakeholders in a construction project. Whilst parties’ primary priority is to complete the project on time, there is almost no perfect execution of a project in accordance with the intent and objective of what the parties contracted for. Invariably the parties will encounter some form of disputes, be it in relation to delays in the work progress, breach of contractual terms and duties leading to termination, claims for variation works and/or loss and expense.
