Mediator FCIOB scoops innovation prize
A practical guide to using mediation to avoid costly and lengthy construction disputes has won the prestigious Innovation Award at the 2018 South West Built Environment Awards.
The free guide was created as a result of bringing together a number of the UK’s leading law firms specialising in construction disputes, including BPL, Trowers & Hamlins, Michelmores and Ashfords.
Christopher Reeves FCIOB, the founder of Mediation4Construction, holds the award, flanked by guide authors Alan Tate, partner at Michelmores, and Stephen Homer, partner at Ashfords
“This mediation guide is a fantastic piece of innovation and could help save construction clients contractors and their supply chain a significant amount of time and money by avoding litigation and adjudication when it comes to disputes over projects,” said Christoper Reeves FCIOB, founder of Mediation4Construction and one of the guide’s authors.
