Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

This special edition of International Journal of Law in the Built Environment is both timely and apt, building upon the work already carried out by Agapiou and Clark (2015) in the Scottish context, and as a direct response to the expansion and development and expansion of court-shadowed/connected construction mediation provisions across a number of jurisdictions in addition to the growing body of research (Brooker and Wilkinson, 2010), which has examined the influences of the connection with formal civil justice systems, court-connected mediators’ practices and that ways that key players approach mediation processes within a number of construction industry contexts.
