2015香港建築業爭端解決研討會

Conference On 
Construction Dispute Resolution
 in Hong Kong 2015
 
 
A Macro View : the Market Perspective
 

  

Besides in earlier days of Hong Kong when arbitration was the major dispute resolution process before the establishment of court service, Alternative Dispute Resolution in Hong Kong started with construction disputes.  From arbitration to mediation, adjudication and other processes are flowering from different development trends such as the use of NEC 3 contracts, the Security of Payment Legislation, the Construction Industry Council’s Reference Materials on Dispute Resolution Mechanisms on Construction Contracts, and so on.  On the other hand, the judicial demand for construction expert witness in court and arbitration is flourishing with the Practice Direction 6.1 Arbitration and Construction List.  How do all these multi-threaded developments impact on the construction industry mandatorily and by contract?  What are the views of the user-market in response?  More importantly, how would all these come together harmoniously in an effective and efficient manner as being expected on speed and costs as ADR should be offering?
