    Abstract

    Then construction industry is well known for creating disputes as, Gould, King, & Britton (Mediating Construction Disputes: An Evaluation of Existing Practice, 2010, p. 2) point out: “Construction as an economic activity appears to generate a disproportionate number of disputes; and so appropriate ways of dealing with these need to be found.” Some of the main reasons disputes are often created in the costruction industry is number of people involved in any given project. Also, the complexity of construction projects and the lengthy duration make it inevitable that disputes will occur. As this is the case this dissertation will analyse effective methods in which to manage these disputes and minimise the disruption caused to the conflicting parties.
    The topic of mediation to settle disputes was chosen as those involved in construction diputes are becoming increasingly frustrated with the conventional methods of solving disputes through litigation which is costly and time consuming. Therefore the focus will be on mediation in the UK construction industry and how effective the process is at settling disputes.
