Resolving Construction Disputes in the Caribbean

The BVI Arbitration Group and the BVI International Arbitration Centre are pleased to propose a free webinar on Construction Disputes in the Caribbean.

Date: 30th June 2021

Time: 11am (BVI Time)


The management of construction projects is by no means an easy task, particularly given its susceptibility to a variety of factors, many of which are outside of the control of the parties. For this reason, there is a higher probability of disputes in the industry which often lead to project delay and additional expense. Recognizing the impact of disputes, most construction standard forms of contract make provision for dispute resolution using a variety of dispute processes in escalation clauses.  These clauses require the parties to try more conciliatory forms of dispute resolution before proceeding to more binding forms like adjudication or arbitration. 

In this webinar, we will look at the non-binding and binding forms of dispute resolution frequently adopted in construction contracts and consider how parties can use them effectively to manage the types of disputes frequently arising in the Caribbean.  Using practical examples, we will look at specific disputes relating to payment and delay to determine the practical steps parties can take to protect their interests as they move through the various dispute resolution processes.
