Concurrency in the Modern Construction Environment
Andrew Farrer provides some thoughts and examples on the practical application of concurrency within a construction environment.
Fairway Director Paul Cacchioli and Stephen Blakey of Network Rail have written an article entitled, Signposts to Claims-free Project Delivery, which has been published on Practical Law's construction blog.
Disputes within the construction industry are commonly viewed as an inevitable part of doing business with mitigation focussed on remedies and contractual defences. The article explores how enhanced collaboration can improve the effectiveness of capital programmes and challenge the inevitability of disputes. The authors consider how a number of initiatives including the Commerical Director's Forum (CDF) and dispute avoidance panels (DAP) can significantly impact team effectiveness and produce positive project outcomes.
