TEAM can resolve your Building Contract Dispute at minimal cost
Building Contract Disputes can occur for many reasons and the business impact on the parties involved can be devastating Ė a huge amount of time and energy is spent stressing about how to reach a fair resolution.
TEAM will take ownership of the Building Dispute Resolution case and engage with all parties taking a direct and focussed hands-on approach to understand the perspectives of both the client or property owner (Customer) and the building contractor (Supplier).
Often one party has a misconception of the strength of their case and this will be exposed so that informed business decisions can be made by all parties to quickly resolve the dispute.
TEAM will start with the aim of achieving a Reconciliation Agreement between the relevant parties and will explore all options to minimise cost to their client.
TEAM always encourages a Reconciliation Agreement
Litigation will be positioned as a last resort and not in the interest of any of the parties involved in the dispute due to the consequential high cost of legal fees and protracted legal proceedings.
In the unlikely event that a reconciliation agreement that is acceptable to all parties canít be reached a legal briefing document will be prepared to minimise legal costs and to expedite the court case. TEAM will still continue to encourage a reconciliation agreement between the parties to minimise legal costs and the financial risk of damages being payable to the appropriate party by a court ruling.
TEAM will declare their costs upfront and keep their client fully informed at every stage of the dispute resolution process and give advice on what action to take that is in their best interest.
TEAM provide flexible Building Contract Management Support
Paul is also helping small-medium sized building companies to correctly implement their contract management processes so that they can successfully deliver on larger projects and improve their profitability and cash flow as their business grows.
On the client side of a building project, Paul is also supporting Property Developers and the clients of Architects by checking that tender documents submitted by the builder are correctly specified, the requirements fully understood and high or low cost rate sensitivities are explored prior to sign-off. This Building Contract Quality Review service, reduces the likelihood of unforeseen surprises in cost for the client or loss for the builder.
Paul has over 35 yearsí experience in the Building and Construction Industry, which delivers huge value to his clients as it ensures contracts are efficiently administered and if any issues arise they are brought to closure quickly.
