The easiest way to avoid construction disputes is to get advice early. It’s the key to successful projects. Often businesses will go ahead with contracts that are not fine-tuned for the project in hand only to come unstuck later. Our goal is to help your business whether you are the Contractor, Sub-contractor or Client. It is important to ensure the contract is correct from the outset and you know exactly what you are signing up to.
Let us work with you to provide early stage procurement and contract advice that will reduce risks. We are able to provide project specific procurement, contract drafting and negotiation advice. For the greatest chance of success, do this before the contract is executed and works commence on- site.
Good Procedures are Crucial
Once the project is on-site, a robust contract administration procedure needs to be in place. Standard form building and engineering contracts have their own specific requirements that the parties to a contract have to comply with. We are able to help by providing clarity to the contract. It is also often the case that businesses do not have correct records to support claims. With the correct processes and procedures in place, this can easily be avoided. We help take this burden away from you and ensure that systematic and logical project records are maintained.
What happens if a dispute arises and it’s half way through the project? Our goal is to maintain relationships between the parties whilst putting you in the optimum position in order to settle the dispute early. Acting on your behalf, we can also help with dispute resolution.
So whether you need advice pre-contract or post-contract, we’re here to help. Just call us on 01727 861 510 or email [email protected]
