Dispute Resolution

We offer an accredited mediation service to the property, construction and engineering sectors. Our expertise in this field is assured, with our executive director being part of the prestigious RICS President’s Panel of Mediators.

Mediation holds a number of advantages for parties to a dispute, especially where the mediator is a subject-matter expert:

  • It is a private process which avoids the public airing of any personal matters and the terms of the settlement are usually confidential.
  • Mediation does not require legal representation, which makes it a much cheaper method of dispute resolution.
  • Mediation is a more creative process as it is not bound by legalities and can accommodate the needs of each party in reaching a settlement.

Project Monitoring

We are able to review technical reports, agreements, cash-flow projections and payments on behalf of project funders in order to ensure that their interests are protected.

Project Audit

Part of our offering is an audit report, advising clients on the adequacy of procedures employed during a project’s lifetime in comparison to best practice.

Condition Surveys

In collaboration with other built-environment professionals, we are able to prepare detailed reports based on the survey of a building’s structure, fabric and services, which assists property owners with maintenance planning and budgeting.

Reinstatement Valuations for Insurance

We offer our clients reinstatement valuations of fixed improvements for insurance purposes. Ideally, this should be carried out on an annual basis so that escalation in construction costs is taken into account.
