Andrew Fowerdew

I hold a Master of Engineering Degree in Civil Engineering along with a Master of Science Degree in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution from Kings College, London.

I am a Chartered Engineer (IEI) and a CEDR accredited Mediator.

In 2022 I decided to rebalance my life and now take on less commissions than before, but previously I was a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, Member of the Adjudication Society, the Dispute Board Federation and the Society of Construction Law.

I have extensive experience within the civil engineering and building industry at a senior level and have worked on a wide range of major projects under a variety of forms of contract. Before commencing consultancy work, I gained extensive hands on experience over many years working for Main Contractors in all aspects of project management from design to final completion including the tender process, project planning/programming and final account settlement.

Examples of my involvement in project management, claims, dispute avoidance or dispute resolution include;

  • Energy
    • gas power generation
    • hydro electric power generation
    • offshore marine works
    • natural gas refining
    • oil refining

  • Rail
    • bridge replacement & track reinstatement
    • mainline station refurbishment
    • underground station construction

  • Roads
    • major highway construction
    • motorway reconstruction
    • utility infrastructure

  • Building
    • commercial/industrial
    • mixed use

  • Treatment
    • water
    • sewage

  • Misc
    • landfill engineering
    • land remediation
    • recycling plants
    • river works
    • airport

    My experience of assisting in the preparation, management and resolution of claims and disputes, for both contractors and employers, ranges from the small to the very large and complex multi billion dollar international projects.

    I have prepared expert reports for litigation, arbitration, adjudication and have given evidence including being cross examined, on civil engineering and building projects before domestic and international tribunals on behalf of Employers, Main Contractors and Sub Contractors.

    My 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.
