The Human Element in Building and Construction

The building and construction industry is a particularly high-risk industry for all participants. For contractors, particularly those performing work in top-tier developments, when a dispute arises, the contractor must strike a balance between protecting their interests and maintaining a relationship with the developer in the hope of securing work in the future. Swaying too far to either side can result in a significant loss being suffered by the contractor. For all participants, the potential adverse consequences associated with delays, both logistical and financial, in the progress of construction work are often significant. Accordingly, it is important to address and aim to resolve any dispute as soon as reasonably practicable after it arises.
