This paper presents a preliminary literature review on the prospects of reforms of adjudication and arbitration to aid construction dispute resolution in South Africa. At the moment, the prevailing method of resolving construction disputes in South Africa are Adjudication and arbitration. This paper seeks to propose effective legal framework for dispute resolution processes for the construction industry in South Africa. While relying on some recent advances recorded in Malaysia and Singapore. While the method adopted is purely doctrinal legal research, the study identifies the relevance of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes in the construction industry in South Africa as utilised elsewhere.
