The topic of this paper is: is arbitration making appropriate use of
the benefits of the Construction Act? The objective is to lay before prospective
disputants a range of measures which are now available and explore the
ways in which the Act opens up possibilities for the more effective and
efficient use of arbitration. Inter alia, the author looks at the differences
between adjudication and arbitration, the makeup of arbitral tribunals
and questions arising from parallel adjudication and arbitration proceedings.
