Alternative Dispute Resolutions (ADR)


As you may or may not know, CQS & PM alongside being a Chartered Building Consultancy & Corporate Member of the Association of Project Management, we also hold membership to the Chartered Institute of Arbitration.

A significant proportion of Construction Projects experience some sort of Cost Loss, Time Loss, Contractual Disagreements or a combination of these which leaves parties feeling frustrated and in a lot of cases not really knowing where to go next except to go ‘Legal’but without having a clear understanding of what that entails and also not understanding that there are various approaches to deal with disputes in a timely, economical and most the time in a non-adversarial fashion.

Throughout the next 10 weeks or so, CQS & PM will be issuing a weekly slide detailing the various paths for Dispute Resolution which may help you or your team make informed decisions should the need the arise in the future. These slides are not intended to give you a full picture of each method but give you an overview into each pathway.

We hope you find them informative and we are always here to discuss and assist in any way possible.
