Services: On-Site Solutions – Construction Projects
In construction more than most places, time is money. Your company’s profit was calculated on everything you knew before you even started, and assumed the job would go as planned. When it doesn’t, what do you do? Finish the job at a higher cost and hope it all works out? Walk off the job and risk a lawsuit? Fire your contractor and, again, risk a lawsuit, and incur additional costs to finish the job? Those options are never satisfactory; the time, costs and trouble to litigate, even if you prevail, almost never match the overall disruption to the job itself.
Mediation services designed to reach immediate agreements to keep the project moving include:
- meeting on site to examine the plans, contracts, scope of work, and the conditions;
- finding a solution to the immediate problem;
- reserving any issues which need to be addressed later; and
- preserving existing relationships between the contractors and owners, helping to assure future projects to be done together.
Please call Brian Purtill directly to discuss the details of any of these services.
