Abstract: One of the greatest challenge facing the construction industry during the last couple of decades has been how to resolve disputes arising in construction contracts’ in a timely and efficient manner with minimal financial costs, without hindering the pre-planned end results on a construction project. Wide scale adoption of Dispute Review Boards (DRBs), sometimes also called Dispute Adjudication Boards (DABs), in large size engineering projects construction contracts is just more than a decade old in the advanced world. During this period, DRBs have been found ideally suited to dispute resolution process in large size projects involving sophisticated technology and Intricate construction techniques such as in tunnels & underground construction, heavy industrial & process buildings, hydro engineering power projects, bridges & highways and marine works.
