Sometimes it seems as if the business of business is making all aspects of life as complicated as possible. When it comes to something like construction projects which are already incredibly complex to begin with, disputes can often make them intolerably complicated and seemingly impossible to simplify.
This is in part due to the number of parties typically involved in construction disputes, and the pressure to ensure that an effort is made to settle construction matters fairly. By putting such focus on scrutinizing every aspect of the process for fairness, the complexity starts to pile up, bogging everything down and turning what should be a fast, simplified process into a slow-moving and maddening one.
Settling Construction Matters Fairly with Mediation
The best strategy for settling construction matters fairly is likely mediation. Mediation allows all parties to have a say in selecting an experienced and knowledgeable neutral to oversee negotiations – an individual who has the specific knowledge of the industry or even the specific aspect of construction causing the dispute to understand the concepts immediately and be able to quickly navigate complex and technical statements.
Because mediation is informal and confidential, all parties can express their point of view without limitation or worry over future consequences. This ease of communication, combined with a strong guiding hand from the mediator, moves the process along briskly, with everyone working together to achieve a fair and acceptable resolution to the matter.
