Number of Complex construction disputes involving infrastructure projects is rising. Responsibility of the employer and the bidder and successful tenderer in conducting a pre-bid feasibility study of the project site is often confusing as the tender document often does not clearly address the issue. If a major flaw is found at later stages on the selection of site etc, both employer and contractor tend to blame each other. Parties or their legal representatives are required to meticulously read the terms and conditions of the tender document and identify their duties and obligations. Any vagueness is required to be resolved at the initial stages.

Our honorable company bench, in a recent decision involving an infrastructure project, set aside the arbitral award of an international arbitration on the ground that the arbitral tribunal reached the award based on perverse fact, which is contrary to our law. The honorable court also confirmed that a majority award is binding so long as the award provides a reason why the third arbitrator failed to consent. This will speed up the delivery of arbitral awards, as in practice the tribunal tends to wait for a consensus award and often cause unnecessary delay. On the other hand, parties are also required to pay attention to the selection of arbitrators as a local arbitrators for international arbitration, often preferable as they are more aware of local customs and practices, this often helps in the fact-finding exercise.
