Construction industry often deals with claims and disputes. It’s a normal practice, which is usually resolved in a timely way. However there are more complicated, unresolved situations, and their consequences could lead to litigation. It provides a disastrous impact to the project and to the entire business. We offer some tips to avoid construction litigation and keep successful practice.
Pay attention to the contract
Frequently construction dispute starts with the construction contract. Make sure that contract is drawn up in a proper way, both sides agree to all points and the project team fully understanding it. The failure to understand the contract is the main source of arguments and litigation in the construction field.
Keep constant communication
Communication is key for successful construction project. Poor communication can result in mistakes, inconsistencies and botched project results. Moreover poor communication can lead to the injuries and incidents, which then turn into lawsuits from the team members (unfortunately, such cases are common in the construction litigation practice). Constant line of communication makes less opportunity for errors and helps keep all the workflow under strong control.
Optimize document management
All construction companies should think about their current document management system. Documentation is an important part of the project. When it’s crunch time, any necessary data should be easily accessible. If you can’t confirm something in time with the appropriate document, your claim is a lost cause. Organized data and document management system is a way to nip the litigation at the initial stage.
