Construction

Construction Dispute MediationThe mediation of construction disputes invariably involves the coming together of a unique set of circumstances where the rewards for the contracting parties are modest compared with the risks that the participants have taken.

Expedite’s panel Mediators recognise that parties involved in construction disputes are usually looking for robust Mediators who are willing to adopt an evaluative approach to the mediation if it looks like a facilitative style is likely to result in failure.

A number of our Mediators have detailed knowledge of construction disputes and hold relevant professional qualifications. Some of them have even been trained in hostage negotiation and are therefore comfortable with “pressure cooker” disputes, which are quite often a feature of construction mediations, where a failure to achieve settlement can have far reaching and long lasting implications for all stakeholders.
