Previous posts on this blog have talked about how construction firms working on federal projects can submit what is called a request for an equitable adjustment.
A previous post on this blog talked about how many disputes about Massachusetts construction contracts wind up in arbitration. As that post explained, arbitration is a relatively informal process by which those involved in the construction industry can resolve their disputes efficiently.
In many construction contracts, the parties involved, including the property owner, the general contractor and subcontractors, will agree to submit any legal disputes they have to arbitration.
Many subcontractors in Massachusetts do work on construction projects for property owned by a state or local government or agency. These public works projects can be lucrative for a number of reasons.
