Short film series

CIOB’s Short film series.

AG Midgley worked with, and received a commendation from the CIOB to coordinate a section of a short film series on disputes in the construction industry.

The movie features questions from David Woolven of The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management, discussions by Professor David Mosey of King’s College London, as well as Matt Molloy of MCMC.

The movie addresses the following key questions:

  • Are disputes an unavoidable consequence of the nature of the construction process and the contracts used or can they be avoided?
  • Which situations create the most disputes on projects ?
  • How effective are Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms for resolving disputes?
  • Have the principles of trust and ethics have been fully embraced by all parts of the construction industry?
  • Have the collaborative ways of working (such as frameworks, partnership & alliances) been effective at reducing conflicts and disputes?
  • Are the standard forms of contract (drafted to be fair to all parties) too often modified by clients’ legal advisers?

In addressing these questions, it touches on key topics including, Adjudication, ADR, Arbitration, Construction Law, Dispute avoidance and Mediation.

The Management of Time

Guide to Good Practice in the Management of Time in Complex Projects

In 2010, Alan Chaired the CIOB’s Guide to the Management of Time;

Delayed completion affects IT, process plant, oil and gas, civil engineering, shipbuilding and marine work contracts. In fact it affects all industries in all countries and the bigger the project, the more damage delayed completion causes to costs, to reputation and sometimes, even to the survival of the contracting parties themselves.

In simple projects, time can be managed intuitively by any reasonably competent person, but complex projects cannot and a more analytical approach is necessary if the project is to succeed.

Project Management

Code of practice for Project Management

Alan Midgley was delighted to have been part of the CIOB’s working group for the 5th Edition;

The first edition of the Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development , published in 1992, was groundbreaking in many ways. Now in its fifth edition, prepared by a multi–institute task force coordinated by the CIOB and including representatives from RICS, RIBA, ICE, APM and CIC, it continues to be the authoritative guide and reference to the principles and practice of project management in construction and development.
