Litigation, Arbitration, and/or Adjudication
Construction Dispute Resolution Mechanisms for Western Canada
Construction projects experience numerous challenges, which can result in disputes between any of the involved parties: owners, consultants, contractors, and subcontractors. In some cases, these disputes threaten the timing and/or economics of project completion. As a result, the availability of cost-effective, efficient, timely, and fair dispute resolution mechanisms is important. Recently, some jurisdictions have adopted the adjudication model to better achieve these results.
This panel will discuss currently available dispute resolution mechanisms (litigation, arbitration, mediation); potential complications that could arise from adding another mechanism; and other questions relating to construction dispute resolution mechanisms.
BRG, Burnet, Duckworth & Palmer LLP, Driver Trett, and the Society of Construction Law North America (SCL NA) will co-host this panel. Anamaria Popescu is chair of SCL NA.
