YOUR FACILITATOR

Andy Hewitt

Freelance construction contracts and claims consultant,


Hewitt Construction Consultancy, United Arab Emirates

I have almost 40-years experience in the construction industry, which has been gained in the United
Kingdom, West Africa and latterly in the Middle East, where I have been based for the past 15-years. I have
worked on projects in the UK, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Nigeria
and Sudan. I am a fellow of Quantity Surveyors International, a member of the Chartered Institution of
Civil Engineering Surveyors, an associate of the Chartered Institute of Building. I am also a member of the
Dispute Resolution Board Foundation and a Corporate Panel Member of the Dispute Board Federation, both
of which are international organisations that actively promote the avoidance and resolution of construction
disputes. I have held senior contracts, commercial and project management positions with contractors,
sub-contractors and consultants, including several years operating my own practice in the UK which
offered quantity surveying, estimating and project management services to contractors, subcontractors
consultants and private clients. I have been involved in a wide variety of construction projects including
super high-rise, large low-rise housing developments, hotels, shopping malls, airports, hospitals, heavy civil
engineering, process plants, highways, marine works, water treatment and reclamation plants, pipelines,
marine works, desalination plants and royal palaces. My project and company management skills together
with experience gained in a variety of disciplines and projects within the construction industry have
led me to specialise in the field of construction contractual issues, claims and dispute management.
Whilst the avoidance of contractual disputes is a priority, if disputes do occur I favour a structured and
proactive approach to their management in order to protect the contractual entitlements of my clients. My
personal background and experience, which includes involvement at many levels and disciplines within
the construction industry, provides a direct benefit to clients in that I can relate to the needs of clients
from both the employer and contractor sides and the individual project personnel through my own past
personal hands-on experience.
Publications: Construction Claims & Responses: effective writing and presentation.
The book discusses the different types of claims common to construction contracts and presents a stepby-step guide, which demonstrates the process of building up the submission of a claim or response. It
includes guidelines as to how to set out the claim section by section in a logical manner, to ensure that
the essentials of a successful claim are included. Worked examples of claims for variations, extensions of
time and additional payment are included together with sample wording to demonstrate precisely how
the claim should be presented in order to contain a persuasive argument to support the claim or response.
