Are your emotions setting you up for a construction dispute?
from The Jobsite
Construction disputes in North America are taking longer to settle, but costing less, according to an ARCADIS report. The biggest cause of disputes is errors and omissions in contracts, but human emotion, and the drive to be “right” is behind a disturbing trend that’s interfering with early resolution. Even though the North American construction industry has come around to using better contracts, is better at risk allocation and has better-educated participants, human emotion is still sending disputes all the way to the courtroom. It’s the drive to be right that’s getting in the way of quick resolutions even though being right often ends costing way more than settling.
