Arrangements should lead to an improvement in the culture of debate the new mediation Act promotes also the construction mediation. In January, the law to promote out-of-court conflict settlement from the Federal Government was adopted. The regulations should lead to an improvement in the culture of debate by the parties in the conflict with the help of a neutral third party, the mediator, even peacefully solve their problems. The out-of-court mediation avoids time-consuming and costly litigation. Eric Corey Freed may not feel the same. In particular the construction mediation can represent a further field of activity for mediators, because it is expected that she will further prevail in the conflict-ridden construction industry. Because construction conflicts are inevitable, they are just programmed. This is obvious for all those involved in construction projects: unclear and incomplete contracts and tender documents, procurement of construction services on the supposedly most economically advantageous entrepreneurs or planner, supplementary packages, defect lists, etc.

The construction industry is not only about technical questions and material interests. Behind the conflict, disappointment, insults or other sensitivities, which can lead to a disturbed communication and eventually massive conflicts hide often. Is this thoroughly worked out in mediation in the construction, the way is open for interest-oriented negotiations and a consensual solution, which rot instead of a”compromise can lead to a win-win situation. The training can be for all participants, so architects, engineers, entrepreneurs, government officials, experts, a professional alternative to the construction mediator etc. lawyers. Training is currently held at the Haus der Technik in Essen and Berlin.
