Mediation in Construction Disputes: Reality and Perspectives

Construction Disputes was the thematic focus of the May Breakfast Seminar. Dr. Ahmed Fathi Waly, Assistant Professor – Department of Construction and Architectural Engineering at the American University in Cairo, delivered a lecture on “Mediation in Construction Disputes: Reality and Perspectives”. The speech highlighted the features and importance of mediation in construction disputes. The disputes settlement mechanism in FIDIC Contracts was tackled with particular focus on mediation. Moreover, the presentation handled the role of mediators in construction disputes, as well as the difference between mediation and negotiation. Following discussion of case studies, Dr. Waly suggested two recommendations; the first to raise the awareness of all construction stakeholders, owners, consultants and contractors alike, as to the privileges of mediation and the second to consider adding a mediation provision in construction contracts. The presentation triggered an interesting questions and answers session. Attendees were representatives of private law firms, construction companies, schools of law and public sector general authorities directly involved in the construction industry.
