A few words from Prof. Sam himself:

During an era where “conservation”, “sustainability”, “Green Buildings” etc. are the buzzwords of the construction industry, it is disturbing to see that little or no attention is paid to the waste of resources unnecessarily spent in formal dispute resolutions. Avoidance of disputes should start by having in place a perfect set of contract documents and end with administrating the contract in a perfect manner, if we are to avoid the waste of money, time and effort spent on expensive and time-consuming dispute resolution processes which also break-down business relationships.
