Introduction to EVALUATIVE MEDIATION for Construction Dispute
The Covid-Act placed ‘Mediation’ as the preferred ADR-method. PAM-Advisory has promoted Architects as ‘Negotiator’. Question is what is Negotiation? Simply a ‘Table-Talk’? Failing which, parties use whatever means to arm-twist one-another? Are Architects competent in negotiation? Are Architects stepping into legal-landmines while discharging as negotiators? This is to highlight the unfamiliar-ground of venturing into ADR-abyss, with guided Mediation-framework where Negotiation is integral in Civil-Commercial Mediation-Procedure. NOW, is the time Architects must undertake responsibility beyond just ‘contract-administration’, to be competent-Mediators.
