Mediation is a voluntary, and confidential forum where an independent mediator aims to guide the parties to a settlement. The mediator does not give a decision, but instead assists the parties to an acceptable resolution of their differences. This gives them significant control over the decision-making process as well as flexibility because solutions do not have to be based on legal rights.
Our extensive knowledge of the construction industry, the field of architecture and our understanding of the legal process, coupled with our tact and sensitive approach helps to give parties the best possible opportunity to settle issues between them. The Sense Studio team have highly experienced and accredited mediators who regularly receive referrals from various nominating bodies including the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects), CIArb (Chartered Institute of Arbitrators), the CMC (Civil Mediation Council) and CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution) as well as direct from the parties in dispute themselves.
