Dispute Avoidance

Consider your options...

We strongly believe that prevention is better than cure. Avoidance of disputes starts at the conception and design stage of a project and continues right through until the final release of retention after the defects period.

Every step of a construction project has the potential to cause a dispute and it is not possible to eliminate the risk of disputes completely. However, it is possible to minimise the risk.

Despite highly publicised cases in the courts, the vast majority of disputes are settled by negotiation alone. Try to deal with disagreements as they arise, afterall, you're going to have to resolve them at some point.

To facilitate a negotiated settlement CDRS Ltd can:

  • provide advice on dispute avoidance at any point in the project life cycle.
  • assist in negotiations or negotiate on your behalf.
  • provide an early evaluation of a claim or defence, (or both).
  • prepare independant and impartial expert reports.
  • act as mediator to facilitate a settlement.

The best way to avoid a dispute is to seek advice, evaluate your options and then negotiate a settlement.
