Kenzie Dispute Resolution services division comprises of highly qualified and experienced construction claims consultants dedicated to helping you to avoid, manage and resolve any construction or engineering disputes which may arise.
Taking steps to prevent potential dispute either during the course of a project or indeed after completion is crucial to the success of any project and the commercial stability of the businesses involved. This is why the Kenzie Group from the very beginning has incorporated a team of construction claims consultants with specialist knowledge of the industries in which our clients operate.
Our claims consultants provide where appropriate, support for our contract management teams throughout all aspects of a contract.
However we also provide bespoke dispute avoidance services for external clients from the earliest stages of a project through to practical completion and beyond.
We appreciate the impact that contract delays, cost overruns and unplanned risks have on a project and the effect of the resulting disputes on our clients’ businesses. To minimise this risk we offer a wide range of specialist dispute avoidance services include document drafting, contractual reviews, risk analysis and management, together with procurement and specialist legal advice.
