The demand for cutting-edge healthcare facilities, while varied by community, tends to rise or remain consistent despite changes in the economy and the availability of the significant capital necessitated by such projects. This creates a unique challenge in both the medical and construction industries.
Many construction contracts designate arbitration as the means to adjudicate disputes which are not resolved through executive negotiation, mediation or some alternate method. Occasionally, a question arises whether the claim falls within the scope of the arbitration clause.
