Variations and their valuations are a primary cause of delays and disputes, and can transform a relatively straightforward project into one of unmanageable complexity.

This report details the poll survey results and discussion held during a webinar hosted by Payapps in partnership with FIS.

Read this report to discover the expert views of Iain Mcilwee (CEO, FIS), Bill Bordill (Expert QS, Decipher) and Kevin P'ng (Commercial Director, BW Interiors) as they discuss these fundamental questions:

  • How are variations affecting the industry and are variations one of the biggest risks faced?
  • How can you ensure correct valuation and payment for construction variations and what are your rights?
  • What are the alternative methods of resolving variation-related disputes and how can disputes be avoided?
  • How can variations be minimised and is it the client's role to assist with this?
  • What does a good variation process look - how can it be managed more efficiently upstream and downstream, and what part can technology play?
