The PAM Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee is organising the ADR Hybrid Seminar on Saturday, 17 December 2022 at 9.00 am - 1.00 pm at Dewan Presiden, Level 2, PAM Centre and via Zoom Webinar. 

Synopsis of the Seminar:

Disputes are the norm in many construction projects due to the work nature involving complexities, uncertain environments, and human factors. Typical construction disputes are problems/issues relating to the design, contract documents, quality, completion, liquidated and ascertained damages, variations, loss or expense, disruption or defects. Besides litigation/common law, there are demands of jurisdiction driven by their professional background or expertise.

This seminar is introductory to alternative dispute resolution available in the construction industry concerning the PAM Contract, such as Arbitration, Adjudication, Mediation and Expert Determination - the role of the contract administrator and what suitable dispute resolution shall be expected when the dispute happens. Nevertheless, the contract administrator shall be a quasi-arbitrator to resolve the dispute before it gets more intense. As such, the construction project can be completed accordingly.

  • Ar. Heng See Imm, Architect
  • Ar. Menaha Ramanath, MENAHA ARCHITECT, Solutions Consultant
