7. Practice Direction 6.1: Construction and Arbitration List
Parties in construction cases are encouraged to attempt mediation as a possible cost-effective means of resolving disputes.
Like PD 31, when a party was engaged in mediation up to the minimum level of expected participation agreed by the parties or as determined by the court, and has reasonable explanation for non-participation, he should not suffer any adverse court order. （Practice Direction 6.1）
