Construction Law and Dispute Resolution

Development Contracts are renowned for high levels of dispute in relation to cost, time and quality. Good pro-active Construction Project Management can ensure that these issues are kept to a minimum.

However, if things start to get out of hand, BDC has the skills and experience to:

  • Analyse developing disputes
  • Identify potential disputes
  • Based on the provisions of the construction contract documents and actual project progress, analyse each item and offer an impartial view of the correct outcome under the circumstances
  • Facilitate workshops amongst the parties to the contract with the view of a negotiated settlement
  • If necessary, provide support to the client and / or contractor and the legal team in court hearings
  • Provide support in the preparation and / or defence of BCIPA claims (note that BCIPA claims can be avoided through proper management of the progress claim process)
