Modern building construction is more than hammers and nails. Much more! From design, through completion all but the smallest projects involve lenders, architects, engineers, construction managers or general contractors, sub-contractors, material suppliers and labourers.
The construction team at EKB assists clients in all of these areas. To minimize the likelihood of disputes, we draft and review construction contracts as necessary for all of the players, but particularly for developers and contractors.
Unfortunately, even with the best contracts, disputes can, and do, arise. EKB’s construction team has experience in successfully handling builders lien claims, product liability claims, workers’ compensation claims, delay claims and deficiency claims. When any of these arise, our construction and litigation team steps in to protect our client’s interest. We represent building owners, developers, architects, engineers, general contractors, subcontractors, and labor and material suppliers. EKB is experienced in all forms of dispute resolution, from mediation through arbitration to litigation, at all levels of court in British Columbia. We provide our clients with practical advice to achieve the best result possible, efficiently and in a cost effective manner. We are accessible and responsive to our clients’ needs.
