Professor Dr Mair Coombes Davies, Barrister, Architect, Chartered Arbitrator
The book is an easy to read, simple and straightforward guide to what can be daunting and unfamiliar territory to architects.
It distils the essence of very different dispute resolution procedures ranging, for example, from mediation through adjudication to arbitration and litigation.
Even for those who are familiar with the various dispute resolution techniques, it is still a useful book to have by your elbow as an aide memoir.
Dr Cyril Chern, Crown Office Chambers, London
Bart Kavanagh's new book "Avoiding and Resolving Disputes - A Short Guide for Architects" is superb and should prove very helpful to not only Architects but to others in the construction field including owners, contractors and Quantity Surveyors. The book is well put together, easily read, and contains vital information which clearly sets out ways to avoid disputes in the first place and also how to deal with them should they become inevitable. The author has a good writing style and comprehensively covers the topic in a short and succinct manner. I would highly recommend this book to all.
Stephen Brookhouse, Professor of Professional Practice in Architecture, University of Westminster
An excellent overview for both Architects and Part 3 students on the Architect's duty of care, the many risks we face and what to do when a problem escalates to a dispute. Clearly laid out with good references and checklists.
