David Hatem to Speak at the 2022 North American Tunneling Conference
David Hatem will be a panelist at the Underground Construction Association’s 2022 North American Tunneling Conference to be held June 19 – 22, 2022 in Philadelphia, PA.
David’s topic, “The State of DRBs in the Tunnel Industry” will take place on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 and explore Dispute Review Boards. In a joint effort between the UCA of SME and the Dispute Resolution Board Foundation (DRBF), the authors embarked on an informal assessment of the state of the DRB practice in the tunnel industry from the point of view of the Contractor, Owner, DRB Practitioner, Attorney and Consultant. The results of this assessment were presented in a panel discussion at the Rapid Excavation and Tunneling Conference (RETC) in June of 2021. This paper presents the results of that session with recommendations for further industry discussion and implementation.
