The average value of construction and engineering disputes in the UK remained at $34m during 2017. This continues to represent the highest average level since Arcadis started producing the Global Construction Disputes Report in 2010, with UK Construction now being costlier on average than the North America and Europe regions.
Globally, the 2018 Report reveals an increase in both the overall length and value of construction disputes, with the findings demonstrating that human factors are affecting these disputes. This year’s Report continues to address the importance of early dispute resolution, and ideally the avoidance of disputes altogether, though project teams around the world continue to struggle. Many of the leading causes of disputes remain the same as in previous years, begging the important question of whether construction professionals are learning from their mistakes when it comes to disputes.
The world is a complex place, Arcadis helps you navigate this complexity by understanding the bigger picture.
Arcadis is committed to providing a healthy and safe working environment for all our employees.
