Committee Room 17, Palace of WestminsterOur founder, Chris Reeves is looking forward to speaking about the use of mediation in the construction sector on 30 January at Westminster with All-Party Parliamentary Group on ADR https://lnkd.in/dZ34fwi This final session will provide members of the Group with an overview of the ways in which ADR methods are being used within the public sector.
Speakers will provide a 10-minute burst before immediate questions followed by a full question and answer period at the end of the bursts.
The session includes contributions from John Pugh-Smith of 39 Essex Chambers on ADR in Local Government, Planning & CPO as well as Graham Massie of CEDR on ADR in NHS disputes.
Chris commented “I am thrilled with the prospect of engaging with the APPG on the use of mediation in the construction sector. The focus is on public sector issues and a number of very interesting and valuable points have been made to me from colleagues in the industry in the run up to Monday’s meeting. M4C is committed to raising awareness of the benefits mediation brings to the construction industry.
I am bound to report to the APPG that with the Government’s apparent direction of travel towards offsite construction there is the need for an integrated supply chain and a collaborative culture - what M4C are doing fits in perfectly. We won’t deliver all these additional houses without it! The Lean Guide http://constructingexcellence.org.uk/resources/lean-construction/ sums it up perfectly in terms that I hope will be understood.”
We will have to wait and see what comes of the APPG on ADR but with the efforts of M4C and its group members in raising awareness of the benefits of mediation in the sector the work continues.
Constructing Excellence South West, in collaboration with Mediation for Construction (M4C), has identified the need to highlight how mediation can and should be used to resolve disputes and Constructing Excellence South West has given its support and encouragement of the use of mediation as a process of resolving disputes.
To promote the greater use of mediation, a CESW Construction Mediation Guide and Protocol has been prepared by a drafting committee: Alan Tate (Trowers and Hamlins LLP), Chris Hoar (Michelmores LLP), Stephen Homer (Ashfords LLP) and our founder Chris Reeves. The Guide will be launched at the summit on 9 June 2017, details o which can be found here
