Mediation & Disputes

We’re aware that things can get difficult at any stage of a construction project. Mediation provides an opportunity for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) with the aim of avoiding costly litigation or arbitration. We offer a qualified RICS accredited mediator to bring parties together to resolve disputes.

We use facilitative mediation to help prioritise issues, clarify needs and provide reality checks. We manage the negotiation process, help all sides to overcome deadlocks and encourage everyone to think creatively about solutions, with the aim of working towards a mutually acceptable settlement.

Get in touch to discuss the nature of your dispute, and we will advise if mediation could help. Common areas of dispute that we encounter include:

  • Relationship breakdown between the parties
  • Financial disputes
  • Interim or final accounts
  • Construction defects
  • Contract disagreements under standard form contracts
  • Variations/change/compensation events
  • Loss and expense or prolongation claims
  • Performance issues
  • Neighbour / boundary disputes
  • Architectural issues
  • Programming, scheduling and timing
  • New-build/renovation/refurbishment
  • Subcontracts / main contracts
  • Home-owner contracts

Mediation FAQS

What Is Mediation?

Mediation is defined as a voluntary non-binding and private dispute resolution process in which a neutral person (the mediator) helps the parties to reach a negotiated settlement. It uses an intermediary to improve dialogue or re-start communication where parties have reached an impasse in their own negotiations. Mediation provides a process which allows the parties that are in conflict, to reach an agreed settlement on their own terms, and not those which are forced upon them by a court or tribunal.
