Dispute Resolution

 

Whilst a proactive approach to minimising and managing project and engineering risks is strongly recommended, we are able to assist clients in respect of reactive interventions and support to problems, disputes and issues that arise during the project, engineering and operational lifecycle.

We provide independent and objective forensic engineering and project forensic consulting services, as well as expert witness and expert consultant/advisor services. In addition, we offer remedial engineering support and consulting on both a technical/engineering and project management basis.

We/our team members are available for nomination as an independent, objective and impartial party as a conciliator, mediator, adjudicator or expert determinator, and on dispute adjudication boards (such as DABs and DAABs) or other dispute resolution panels.

We can also assist in the conduct and running/management of inquiries, hearings and inquests.

 

Dispute Avoidance

 

The old adage “prevention is better than cure” is particularly true in the projects and engineering environment. In this context, the avoidance of disputes and problems is generally a preferable strategy to dispute resolution.

Avoidance of project and engineering disputes and problems however requires a structured, systematic and proactive approach to be implemented, preferably from the outset. Appropriate actions, behaviour and mindsets are key to enabling this, and hence to enabling project and engineering success.

Successful project and engineering outcomes don’t just happen. They are the result, inter alia, of a well-orchestrated implementation and management plan executed in a proactive manner.

At Engenamic we can enable your project and engineering success, through applying our strategic project and engineering advisory capabilities (including systems engineering and project & engineering management), as well as our project and engineering advisory and support capabilities.
