CONFLICTS BETWEEN OWNER AND CONTRACTORS: PROPOSED INTERVENTION PROCESS

The parties of a construction contract, the owner and contractor, are a society with a complex set of interrelated relationships requiring cooperation and collaboration to coordinate time, resources, and communication. The main aim of the involved parties in a project's construction is to have a successful project constructed in accordance with plans and specifications, within the time and cost originally anticipated. The success of a project depends on a number of variables, not the least of which is how the organizations approach problems and conflicts. However, the adversarial atmosphere that pervades the industry can prevent the parties from reaching their goal. An intervention process is proposed--a combination of partnership and mediation, to prevent and resolve dispute prior to contract close-out.
