The DRBF was incorporated in Wisconsin, United States in 1996 by a small group of visionaries who saw the need for a better way of dispute resolution on construction projects. The DRBF was born to bring an alternative method of dispute resolution through the innovative use of Dispute Boards to projects worldwide.

This process has rapidly grown across the globe and spawned various other alternative dispute resolution methods, with the emphasis on dispute avoidance.
