A brief conspectus of the facilities offered by the Centre.

Purpose Built ... designed by professionals for professionals

Unlike many mediation and arbitration spaces, the TDC operates from a purpose built, sound-proofed, high technology, dedicated centre in the Sydney CBD, at 155 King Street. This is on the corner of King and Castlereagh Streets.

Using a talented and award-winning design team, we fitted out the space in October 2008. We spent time speaking with experienced mediators and arbitrators before we finalised the design.

Heritage Building

The Centre is located in a heritage building offering a unique combination of ambiance and superior levels of service and technological support for your mediation and arbitration requirements. We feature artwork by emerging Australian artists.

Comfortable and Convenient

The Centre's mediation facility with adjoining breakout rooms and high quality furnishings and fittings make the TDC a very comfortable and convenient choice. Espresso Coffee machine included. Barrista on call.

Every dispute is different. Our staff are willing to assist with your special requirements.
