Deliver construction and infrastructure projects on time and in budget. A fresh new approach to the better management and avoidance of disputes, CAP encourages parties to act collaboratively and resolve disagreements before they escalate.
CAP is a government-endorsed procedure that can be written into contracts to help parties involved in construction or engineering projects to resolve disagreements out of court. It encourages parties to resolve problems at the time of the event, to nip them in the bud before they escalate to drawn-out, damaging disputes. CAP can be written into contracts, or it can be utilised on an ad hoc basis by agreement between the parties.
For a detailed explanation and a step-by-step walk-through of the process, see the CAP Webinar and CAP User Guide below.
The UK Government’s Construction Playbook is compulsory guidance for contracting authorities involved in public construction projects. It mandates the inclusion of a Model Clause for Conflict Avoidance for all public works projects and programmes on a ‘comply-or-explain’ basis.
