Adjudication is a simple and efficient method of settling general and specialised construction disputes. Unless revised by arbitration or litigation there is no right of appeal. This is a time-sensitive process, with adjudicators making a decision within 28 days.
Parties are afforded more control over proceedings as a request for adjudication can be commenced during the course of works, therefore resolving interim disputes quickly to assist cash flow and ensuring the progress of works is not disrupted. Parties can select the background and discipline of the adjudicator based on the technical expertise required. Unless set aside by arbitration or the courts, the decision is binding.
