Global Construction Disputes Report


The Arcadis global construction market in 2017 had better than expected results, with several countries seeing much-needed infrastructure project starts and investors building in markets where their dollars could stretch further. Despite these positive economic drivers, the industry still struggles with implementing proactive measures to protect their interests.

The 2018 report highlights how several regions experienced higher dispute values that take a longer amount of time to resolve. The results also reveal: the need for involved parties to understand the critical nature of contract administration; how avoidance approaches and assessing risks continue to be a best practice; the impact team relationships have on avoiding, mitigating and resolving disputes.
