A cost overrun could make a construction project in Kansas less profitable. Therefore, it is essential that the involved parties take steps to control costs.

How BIM can help with dispute resolution

If a construction dispute took place in Kansas or anywhere else in North America in 2016, it took about 14 months to resolve. Furthermore, average disputes had a value of $21 million, according to Arcadis.

The many ways to resolve business disputes

Construction disputes can occur in Kansas or any other state in the country. When they do occur, it isn't necessarily because a party has breached the terms of the contract.

Contractors should take steps prior to executing a contract to ensure that the terms are as clear as possible.
