In case of differences of opinion during construction or after completion of the construction measure, a dispute resolution may be advisable. The objective is an amicable agreement of the parties before a court of law or a court of arbitration is appealed to. The arbitrator need not be a lawyer.
Not infrequently an extra-judicial resolution is recommended or even ordered by a court of law for major projects or complex matters in dispute. Then questions on construction time, claims, invoicing or defects must be clarified through construction management.
The following types of arbitration were already implemented by LHR:
- Expert opinion on settlement of dispute (requested by both contract partners)
- Joint expert opinion on settlement of dispute (with expert of other contract partner)
- Expert opinion on identification and elimination of defects and assignment of the costs
- Expert opinion on construction time delay
