CPD Hours

The construction industry lives on a complex mix of one off projects, bringing together a large pool of different resources using many differing forms of contract. Disputes will inevitably arise from time to time – ostensibly about money but frequently with a background of egos, emotions and fear of exposure of mistakes.

John will explain how disputes commonly arise and how to avert them. He will show the ways the construction industry uses to resolve those that are unavoidable. He will demonstrate by example that inexpensive, proactive approaches can often produce much better results than formal legal disputes.


John- is a chartered civil engineer with over 45 years’ experience on major buildings and infrastructure as a client, consultant, contractor and subcontractor across seven countries. Since 2008 he has operated his own practice in Perth specialising in project recovery and dispute resolution in WA and NT.

A Senior Sessional Member of the WA State Administrative Tribunal, John is an arbitrator and an adjudicator in WA and NT. He has trained adjudicators on behalf of Resolution Institute, where he served as a director. He has acted as an expert witness, expert determiner and conciliator. NMAS accredited, he mediates multi-million construction disputes as well as commercial disputes on behalf of the Small Business Development Corporation and Office of the Franchising Mediation Advisor. He also mediates family disputes at the Citizens Advice Bureau of WA.
