Dispute resolution

It is an unfortunate fact that in a small number of construction contracts, disputes arise


In order to help to avoid litigation (as promoted by government and by the courts), the RIBA offers a number of alternative dispute resolution processes to the disputing parties. 

The document below outlines some of the options that may be available to parties indispute, whether that be architects and their clients, or parties to a construction contract. 

Please see the links on the left-hand side of the page for more detailed information on the processes.
