Hardies partner becomes RICS-accredited evaluative mediator

Murray Warner

HARDIES Property & Construction Consultants says it has ‘enhanced’ its dispute resolution offering after partner Murray Warner became a RICS-accredited evaluative mediator.

Mr Warner said, “As a business we are keen to promote formal evaluative mediation, which can provide a quick resolution to disputes, thereby avoiding more costly, time consuming and uncertain alternatives. With meditation, disputing parties remain in control of the process, working relationships are more likely to be preserved and positive solutions and outcomes are encouraged.

“We anticipate a growth in the requirement of such mediation over the coming years and consequently intend to train more of our construction professionals in formal mediation to further strengthen our dispute resolution teams across Scotland.”
