Weighing Your Options: What Specifiers and Contractors Should Know about Alternate Dispute Resolution Clauses in Contracts

by George MacDonald, QC, McInnes Cooper

The author discusses the importance of establishing a dispute-resolution clause in a contract to avoid arbitration or court. He outlines a recent dispute concerning surface preparation of structural steel and the coating applied to the prepared surface.


Top Contractors Focus on Quality and Innovation

by Joe Maty, JPCL

For the first time, JPCL has given a face to its Industrial Contractor Directory, with this profile of top contractors, as measured by revenues. These top contractors are listed and described; and in most cases, their leaders' views about their success are reported. The picture created by these profiles shows that successful industrial painting contractors have sophisticated management skills, strong technical knowledge, and the energy and desire to create innovations in their services.
