Assessing the risks and disadvantages of construction disputes

There are always those mysterious construction projects in California that appear to be moving along consistently and then one day it seems as though all progress has been stopped. Overtime materials sit untouched and the environment begins to wreak its havoc on the partially-completed project turning into an eyesore. Often, these types of failed projects happen because of ineffective planning, inadequate financing or poor implementation of critical contractual agreements. 

According to Linkedin, there are a few reasons why project delays or abandonment may happen. These include the following reasons: 

  • Partway through a project's completion, the scope of the project is altered so significantly that there are inadequate finances, resources or even interest from investors to continue its completion. 
  • There were critical errors made in the design process that were not discovered until construction was underway. Removal or modification of the errors can set a project back significantly or even derail it for good. 
  • Inadequate time was taken in analyzing a project's complexity and preparing to have the appropriate commitment of time, manpower and financial support.

Often, in any of the aforementioned circumstances, construction disputes accompany what is happening because there are critical disagreements over how to proceed. In cases where financial support is an issue, there may be tense debates about how everyone will be paid including subcontracted workers. 

The Constructor warns that construction disputes have other risks including the abandonment of projects, costly expenditures to correct disputes and time-consuming negotiations or litigation. In cases where a project can be saved despite a dispute, overtime may be required by contracted workers to be able to finish the project without going over timelines.
