Mediation Centre of Choice for Construction Disputes

Why mediate? Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process through which disputants seek a practical solution to their dispute. The disputants are guided in their decision-making process by a neutral third party- the mediator, who assists them in finding a solution to which both assent with regard to their different concerns.

In the construction industry, potential disputants could be employers (usually the developer of the development), main contractors, sub-contractors, various tiers of sub-contractors and suppliers. Read mediation via link here
