New mediation initiative to support delivery of major projects

Conflict resolution body, CEDR Solve, and specialist construction law firm, Fenwick Elliott LLP, have launched "Project Mediation". This is an initiative which aims to help industry leaders make full use of conflict management techniques to support the successful delivery of projects, especially major and long-term projects, such as the London Olympics. It will involve the use of a skilled "overseer of communications" between the whole project team. This should give the team the opportunity to meet and work through difficult issues as soon as they arise, with the aim of "maintaining communications and progress while minimising disruption to the project".
