Construction claims often occur due to failure of communication during the planning, building and change of plan events. Both the builder and the owner accuse each other for being at fault, when the fault is often failure of communication. A mediator can help identify the areas of miscommunication, the timing of the miscommunication and then resolve the issue to the benefit of both parties and restore the business relationship.
Other construction claims can be based on faulty workmanship, poor quality material, poor planning and execution. These claims can demand an excessive expenditure of time, staff and labor and the hiring of experts. A mediator well versed in construction work can help the parties focus on the construction issues, and the cost to remedy the alleged failure.
