Construction Mediation services

Mediation is a dispute resolution process in which parties voluntarily agree to meet with a third party, who will assist them to settle the matter amicably.

Disputes in the residential construction sector are unfortunately quite common and usually quite complex.  Many disputes involve the matters of date of completion, workmanship, materials and/ or design issues.  Grievances generally result in contractual breach and payment issues.

Mediation of construction disputes is a advantageous route for all parties as it:

  • Faster and less expensive
  • Process is easier and involves less preparation
  • Parties have an option to choose the process and manner in which the mediation is conducted
  • The process and outcome of the mediation is private
