Dispute resolution in construction contracts is the process of resolving disputes between parties, often caused by an actual or perceived violation of an agreement or other contractual obligation. Construction disputes can be complex, costly, and time-consuming, leading to project delays/disruption or, at the very worst, personal injury or complete project failure.
Should a dispute arise during pre-construction, construction, or post-construction proceedings, it is prudent to work with an expert that can prepare an authoritative evaluation and deliver thorough dispute resolution services to facilitate a positive outcome. At Zero/Six consulting, we offer sound insight and counsel to a wide range of construction disputes.
