The Building Disputes Tribunal maintains a number of panels in relation to the various Dispute Resolution procedures available through the Tribunal.

All Building Disputes Tribunal panellists have been appointed to the Tribunal’s panels because of their extensive knowledge and expertise in construction law coupled with their extensive knowledge, skill and experience.
Some adjudicators come from legal backgrounds, some have an engineering, architectural and/or quantity surveying background and others have been builders, project managers and/or building consultants – all have extensive knowledge of building and construction practice and building and construction law in New Zealand.
The Building Disputes Tribunal provides a continuing professional development programme for its adjudicators to ensure consistency and excellence in the delivery of its services. All adjudicators on the Tribunal’s panels are required to maintain appropriate levels of continuing professional development.

Please contact us to arrange dispute resolution services by any of our panel members (whether or not the parties agree or require an appointment to be made).
