Adjudication

ABOUT CONSTRUCTION ADJUDICATION

Adjudication is form of dispute resolution and a statutory process under the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (the “Act”), which entitles parties to a construction contract to refer a disputed matter to Adjudication whereby an independent third party Adjudicator will make his temporary, non-binding decision, normally within a period of 28-days. Matters that may be referred to Adjudication include disputes over interim or final payments, delay and disruption matters, extensions of time, defective works, professional negligence, breach of contract and termination. Adjudication is a private process. Even where the Act may not apply in respect of the particular dispute, Adjudication can be available under the terms of the construction contract.
