The construction industry in the United Arab Emirates is considered the largest single industry, yet, it is also very complex and the most fragmented industry as it involves multidisciplinary participants. In this multidisciplinary environment, claims appear to hinder the completion of construction and cause delays in delivering projects. This research presents the results of a study of the types, causes, and frequency of construction claims in the emirates of Dubai and Abu Dhabi in UAE using a data from 124 claims for a variety of projects in the two emirates. The data were analyzed and the results of this analysis along with recommendations on how to reduce/prevent claims in construction are then presented.
