Construction Claims Defined

Construction disputes, become very costly when not resolved in a timely manner and factors such as personnel, time, finances and opportunity impact. Arcor-Inc. has developed efficient systems and methods over time to prevent construction defects and construction disputes, as well as facilitating resolution and prevention of disputes in a time effective way.

The goal of Construction Risk Profiling which is core to ARCOR-Inc.’s methodology, has as it’s pivotal objective, the PREVENTION or REMEDIATION of DISPUTES. Current practice in construction dispute resolution generally reflects one of two perspectives:
1. The “ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL” disputes
2. A BUFFET of DISCRETE, STAND-ALONE choices that one needs to pick from
