Disputes are common on construction projects and can have significant financial and commercial impacts when not promptly resolved. For over a decade, CCDC’s standard construction contracts have included provisions on the use and rules of arbitration and mediation. Arbitration and mediation processes are intended to encourage speedy, cost-effective, and private resolution of disputes, without having to deal with overburdened courts and an adversarial system.
CCDC’s speakers will explain the sequence and potential outcomes of arbitration and mediation processes, as well as the roles and responsibilities of all parties, including consultants, involved in construction disputes. If you’ve ever wondered how to navigate construction disputes, you won’t want to miss this!
Who should attend? Owners, contractors, architects, engineers, lawyers, and allied professionals in the construction industry.
