Welcome

Construction Claims & Disputes

Welcome to the website of Construction Dispute Resolution Service formerly Construction Dispute Resolution Service Ltd.

Formed in 2003 by Andrew Flowerdew (see details), he decided to 'retire' in March 2020 and now specialises in providing an expert witness service for cases involving delay and or disruption. However, he may also take on other types of work and is always available for advice, so please contact him if you believe he may be of help.

Disputes are a stressful time for everyone involved and his philosophy has always been to practice dispute avoidance before dispute resolution. Some advice on avoiding disputes is on this website.

Sadly, not every dispute can be avoided and for those of you that need to know more about the available processes to resolve a construction dispute, please use the links on this page to find out more.

Clients have included Private Developers, Government Authorities, Joint Ventures, Law Firms, Main Contractors and Sub Contractors on projects in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Far East, Caribbean and North America. Project involvement varies from the small to the very large and complex billion dollar plus international projects.
