There is increasing interest in various other ways in which these conflicts could be resolved. Such possible avenues are known collectively as alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Impulse for a change to ADR appears to have originated in the USA, where a number of factors contributed to this development, in particular: (a) The constitutionally guaranteed right to jury trial for ‘suits at common law’. (b) The absence of any general system of ‘fee shifting’ in civil litigation, so that each party must bear its own costs regardless of the outcome.

Occasionally the chairperson is appointed by the parties directly or by the first two members without the parties’ further input. Another approach sometimes utilised is where the parties choose the chairperson who then selects the two other members of the board – this is sometimes referred to as ‘Top-down’ selection.

In certain situations there may be benefit in cross-questioning by the other party, particularly if technical matters are in issue. Use of expert witnesses is unusual as the dispute board members are themselves construction professionals who bring wide experience to the project.
