Construction mediation provides a more efficient method for settling construction disputes. Legal issues in the construction world are complex. Often, three or more parties are involved in a construction dispute and litigation is not always the most efficient method for resolving the matter. Construction mediation allows disputing parties to work with someone familiar with the industry – someone that can ensure the discussions about the dispute are productive and a satisfactory resolution is reached.
Understanding all of the issues involved in a construction dispute takes time. There are the issues of the owner, the general contractor, the numerous sub-contractors, and architectural boards, all of whom have a desired outcome. Settling a construction dispute requires a process that allows each of these parties to speak openly and without fear of tipping their hand or dealing with cross examination. Construction mediation can help.
