CIOB Contract Looking Good!

I'm working my way through the CIOB Contract authored by the Chartered Institute of Building out of the UK and really liking what I see.  The instrument is a substantive advance in built industry contacting, containing truly innovative provisions and adding teeth to for enforcement.

The alternative dispute resolution mechanisms are particularly strong.  Found in paragraphs 65 and 66 of the Conditions and the protocol laid out in Appendix B the ADR provisions distinguish between Issues and Disputes and requires the parties to identify and utilize "Principal Experts" a role very similar to the Dispute Reviewers found in the instruments authored by Collaborative Construction.

In coming weeks I will delve into the CIOB Contract for Complex Project in more detail.  Meanwhile, feel free to download free copies of the documents at the link above.

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!
