Modern construction inevitably involves risk and ConsultCross uses its specialist knowledge to assist all parties involved in construction to manage that risk.
The last 18 months have shown that managing risk and dealing with unforeseen events in construction contracts is more important than ever.
The best time to manage risk is at the outset and we can provide advice on the key areas of risk in a construction contract or consultant appointment so that you can enter into the project with eyes wide open.
As a project progresses there will invariably be unforeseen events and changes which require resolution. ConsultCross can advise on how these should be dealt with under the contract to offer maximum protection and recovery. We can prepare extension of time claims, loss and expense claims and assist with the resolution of variations and final accounts. A well-presented claim can often avoid the need to invoke the dispute resolution procedures in the contract.
Disputes are however unavoidable in construction as the parties to a contract can have a differing view on who bears the risk. Sometimes the only option is to seek a third party resolution of the matter and ConsultCross can support you and your legal team through that process whether it be adjudication, mediation or litigation.
