What is Adjudication?

Adjudication is a simple and efficient method of settling general and specialised construction disputes.

The advantage to adjudication is:

  • speed, as a decision must be reached within 28 days
  • can be commenced during the course of works to resolve interim disputes quickly, assist cash flow and ensure progress of works continue
  • the adjudicators decision is binding (unless set aside by arbitration or the courts)
  • adjudicators can be chosen from all backgrounds and disciplines and for their technical expertise.

How does it work?

The process involves an adjudicator who uses their own knowledge and investigations, while weighing the evidence presented by the parties, in order to reach a decision.
