Two arbitrators' viewpoints of construction claims development are provided in the hope that the information will be useful to those needing to resolve construction claims by arbitration. It also may help to reduce the volume of costly and unnecessary documentation. Because of arbitration's relative formality, attorneys representing construction contractors and owners tend to prepare their cases in the same way as they would for litigation. This leads to potential information overkill, which threatens the arbitration panel's ability to easily sort through and understand the issues in its quest for a fair and equitable decision.
