Resolve construction disputes through arbitration.
When you picture the dispute resolution process, you may envision a formal court trial with a jury, judge, and lawyers present. But there are many forms of dispute resolution used in the construction industry today, one of which is arbitration.
Construction arbitration involves settling a dispute but without the involvement of the court system. Either in a contract before any dispute arises or in an agreement formed after a dispute occurs, two parties agree to solve their dispute through arbitration rather than bringing their lawsuit to court. By consenting to arbitration, those involved give the arbitrator the power to make a decision regarding the obligations and rights of both parties. In most cases, the decision made by the arbitrator is legally binding.
Today, most standardized construction contracts include a clause requiring the use of arbitration in the event of a dispute. The main advantage of this format is that for most cases, the process is quick and relatively straightforward. A decision on the case can be issued quickly, and the process itself is generally informal.
