Mediation of Construction Claims and Disputes

Two business woman in a serious contradiction

Construction projects can be extremely complex. Even under the best circumstances, there are a lot of things that can go wrong. And unfortunately, this puts people involved at risk for losing a lot of money and projects taking far more time than they should.

There are measures you can take to reduce the risk of problems but even with proper planning, disputes are still possible. If and when you find yourself dealing with a construction claim or involved in a construction dispute, mediation can help.

Mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution make it possible to resolve construction disputes efficiently and affordably.

Why is mediation so effective in the construction industry?

Avoiding litigation by using mediation saves time, money, and frustration. It also makes it possible for everyone involved to walk away happy with the outcome. Mediation is flexible and allows for resolutions that would not be an option in the courtroom. Using mediation also allows you to keep the details of the dispute private.

And perhaps most importantly, mediation protects mutually beneficial relationships. Sometimes in business, this is the most important factor and the primary reason for choosing mediation over litigation.

How can you use mediation to resolve a construction claim or end a dispute?

The first thing you need to do is find a skilled mediator. Mediators lack the power to make a ruling or dictate the outcome of a dispute, but they are an essential part of the process. They keep the discussion on track and help parties understand the benefits of staying out of the courtroom. Their goal is to facilitate productive, respectful communication that keeps parties moving toward a mutually beneficial resolution.

There are several ways to resolve a construction claim or dispute, but if you are looking for the most efficient and effective tool, mediation can help. Please feel free to contact Robertson Mediation to schedule a virtual consultation with you.
