The construction industry utilizes a number of different methods to resolve disputes:

  • Arbitration through legal counsel argues before a third party who renders a verdict

What is arbitration?

Arbitration is a method used for resolving disputes and is often included in a construction contract. Many courts will also order that cases be subjected to arbitration before they can come to court as a dispute. While similar to a trial, arbitration is less formal and can often be less time consuming and expensive. One or more neutral arbitrators are selected to hear the dispute. Arbitrators can act like a judge, as they hear the case and make a final decision.

Utilizing Mediation Methods

Mediation is another means of resolution and can sometimes be court-ordered before a case is brought to trial. As opposed to arbitration, mediation is nothing like a trial but is merely an effort to have both parties reach a mutually acceptable settlement. A mediator is a neutral third party. While they cannot render a decision in the conflict, they offer guidance for out of court dispute resolution.
