Our Top Panel of Building Arbitrators
Why Arbitration Works?
Arbitration is a method of settling disputes privately. So, unlike having to go to the court where the general public are allowed admission to the hearing, arbitration is private. None of the documents shared, or minutes of the meetings are public, which means no reporting by the media on the outcome.
The service is offered at two different levels, which depends mainly on the complexity and value of the dispute. The first level is fast-tracked, usually for disputes that need to be solved quickly, and the other is the regular dispute arbitration service which moves through at normal pace.
Some disputes need to be settled sooner than later, and as professionals, we understand its urgency. Our arbitration service works swiftly and is the perfect alternative to the County Court or having adjudication for the resolution of these types of disputes.
That’s why arbitration is the tool of choice in disputes which involves high-tech companies and contracts that are of the sensitive nature. Furthermore, arbitration ensures that a company’s reputation isn’t tarnished in public debate for making what may be viewed at unpopular decisions.
Arbitration is a formal process, and we as the arbitrators will assign an impartial third party that has a background, and knowledge of the building, construction or engineering industry. Having knowledge and experience allows the arbitrator to work more efficiently in helping resolve the dispute. Plus the decision by the arbitrator is binding for all parties involved.
Arbitration is often seen as the best alternative to dispute resolution because it is a consensual process, where all parties involved have given an arbitrator the authority to resolve their differences. The result is that all parties, in most cases, will be happy with the outcome because it is unbiased and free from third-party interference.
Our Experience & Expertise
Now unlike some other services, our arbitrators have building industry experience, but we also have professionals with additional experience of other industries.
For instance, some of our arbitrators are surveyors; others are architects and engineers. That said every member of the panel is strictly assessed and is closely monitored to ensure that our processes are followed strictly, and conclusions are reached in a timely manner.
The service is designed to allow for disputes in the construction industry to be referred to the top decision-makers, each one of whom are some of the most seasoned veterans. Our team has a lot of experience dealing with a myriad of construction and engineering related disputes. The panel of building arbitrators are qualified and have a great deal of knowledge about the building industry.
We appoint arbitrators after having discussed matters with both parties. When two or more parties are not able to agree on who the arbitrator should be, we assure everyone that the ones we appoint will have the required skills, experience and knowledge to ensure a viable settlement for both parties.

The validity of the Arbitration Agreement
When a claimant starts by kicking off proceedings in the UK, and then the defendant goes ahead and applies for a stay for arbitration, there could be occasions when there are issues which arise between all parties involved. That’s where a valid arbitration agreement comes into play. Now there are two varying types of jurisdiction.
The first of the jurisdictions decide any claims on the merits of those claims. The second is the jurisdiction to conclude if the tribunal or a court has the required jurisdiction. According to English law, an arbitral tribunal can rule upon its jurisdiction.

Need a formal, quick cost effective solution to your on going dispute?
Mediation 4 builders has dynamics, timetable, structure that “ordinary” negotiations do not have. The process is confidential, private and enforced by law.
Fast Tracking Arbitration
All parties involved may agree to use the service even if the contracts don’t specify a clause for arbitration. An ad-hoc arbitration agreement can be used for times when arbitration isn’t specified in the contract.
The contract allows for a detailed examination of the problem and then strives to ensure a more viable outcome along with a binding decision as compared to many County Court judgements.
Many businesses find that arbitration is the best alternative to litigation, especially for resolving building and construction-related disputes. Our arbitration process is streamlined, easy to follow, and all parties will agree is a fair one.
Arbitration requires that all parties agree on hiring a dispute resolution service like ours. Our arbitration process has a panel of arbitrators or in some cases a single arbitrator who will adjudicate the dispute and negotiations, instead of having judges in the public court system pass a judgement. That said, using the public court system does have its perks. Verdicts by public courts can be enforced, and the winning party can use the full force of the law to compel the other side.
However, court proceedings are rarely private, so businesses that want confidentiality may probably hesitate to use the public court system. Plus going through the public court system has become more expensive over the years, especially if the case is being heard in a city like London.
However, arbitration isn’t just the only alternative to formal court proceedings. A few others include evaluation, mediation and adjudication. Though unlike arbitration, these aren’t binding methods and could lead to court proceedings if one party does not like the outcome or later changes their minds.
