Adjudication was introduced in construction contracts as a requirement of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act in 1998 to tackle the large number of disputes which dog most projects. Provisions for adjudication are now included in all standard construction forms and are implied into all construction contracts that do not expressly include them. When adjudication was first launched there were enormous uncertainties about how it would work in practice, and books published to coincide with the launch could only speculate on this. This new guide, written by a construction lawyer and experienced adjudicator, is the first to explain how adjudication is actually working in practice. It covers all the major court decisions which have clarified enforcement, adjudicator errors and problems such as definition of construction contracts, jurisdiction, insolvency, natural justice and human rights. It also deals with the complex requirements of the legislation regarding payment terms. This will provide a highly readable, but authoritative guide for all involved in adjudications, whether contracts directors, construction consultants, lawyers or adjudicators.

This book is a simple, practical guide to the effects of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, and the Scheme for Construction Contracts which is a Regulation produced under the Act. It does not go through the Scheme clause by clause, but clearly and concisely explains the actions required by the Scheme stage by stage. It is not a legal treatise, but is a simple, straightforward guide, which has been specifically written to help those people who have a dispute which is referred to adjudication, or who have difficulties understanding the payment terms. In one, handy, concise volume, this book delivers practical advice and guidance on how to present your information to the adjudicator, what to expect from the other parties involved and how to enforce a decision if the other party does not implement it. Since the first edition of this popular book was launched in 1998, adjudication has become an outstanding success and there have been over 200 court judgements, mostly on enforcement proceedings and four decisions of the Court of Appeal. The effects of these judgements have been reflected in this new edition. Experience has also shown that probably the most important feature of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 has been the payment provisions. The section on the payment provisions has therefore been expanded to take account of our better understanding of their effects.

In the United Kingdom, adjudication is available as a right for parties to a construction contract, following the enactment of the Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act 1996. In general, within a comparatively short period of time, parties in dispute will have a decision from an adjudicator, which, except in limited circumstances, the courts will enforce. Adjudication has become the number one method of dispute resolution in the construction industry. The short timescale means that a party needs to know what to do, when to do it and be able to check that the other party and the adjudicator are following the right steps. A Practical Guide to Construction Adjudication gives parties the necessary information to achieve this. It provides a straightforward overview of the process and procedure of adjudication by reference to legislation and case law, augmented with practical guidance including suggestions on what to do or not to do, drafting tips and checklists. Separate chapters for Scotland and Northern Ireland identify and explain the differences in procedure and judicial interpretation between those jurisdictions and England and Wales, and further detailed explanations of the adjudication regimes in Australia, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore are included. Each of the chapters on jurisdictions outside England and Wales has been written by senior experts in those jurisdictions to ensure the content is accurate and insightful. There are a range of helpful appendices including a bank of model form adjudication documents and tabulated detailed comparisons of the Scheme for Construction Contracts, the other major adjudication rules, the major adjudicator nominating bodies and the UK and international regimes. Readers will particularly appreciate the most comprehensive index of adjudication cases available, sorted into 260 subject headings providing immediate access to all the reported cases on any adjudication topic.

This is the first comprehensive text book to deal with the law and practice of adjudication in construction and engineering disputes. The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 introduced adjudication as a new and compulsory form of dispute resolution mechanism in construction contracts, pursuant to which all disputes will be decided in 28 days by an adjudicator, whose decision then remains binding and enforceable,unless and until it is challenged in court or arbitration. There have been tens of thousands of such adjudications in the decade since the Act came into force, and nearly 250 reported judgements, as the Technology and Construction Court and the Court of Appeal have set out guidance to the parties(and the adjudicators) on the proper approach to the running of an adjudication and the legal effect and status of the adjudicator's decision.The volume of such cases, and the constant refining of the relevant principles by the courts, has meant that it is only now possible for a detailed work on this subject to be prepared. This textbook analyses all these decisions under clear headings, and explains the scope and limits of anadjudicator's jurisdiction. It also includes a section full of practical advice to parties and to adjudicators as to how they can ensure a successful adjudication.Written by a Senior Circuit judge, who sits full time at the Technology and Construction Court, Construction Adjudication provides an authoritative and up to date text which will be of invaluable help to all those involved in the adjudication process.

Adjudication provisions are now a fundamental part of construction contracts. A clear and concise understanding of the adjudication process is therefore essential. Practical adjudication for construction professionals presents practical advice on the process of adjudication and how best to proceed to an ultimate decision. This up-to-date book is divided into three parts. Part 1 provides details of the legal requirements for construction adjudication, describes and critically reviews the Construction Act, the current Scheme for Construction Contracts and the ICE, JCT, GC/Works and CIC contractual adjudication procedures. In Part 2, the procedural conduct of adjudication - from the occurence of a dispute, through the appointment of an Adjudicator, to the production of an adjudication decision - are examined. Following on from this, more general issues, including insurance aspects, are discussed in Part 3. Several appendices and a comprehensive list of adjudication cases and summaries are provided at the end of the book. The book incorporates valuable guidance from recently decided legal cases, identifies significant differences between statutory Scheme adjudications and contractual adjudications, and highlights the increasing divergence in some areas between the decisions of the English and Scottish courts. Included within this essential resource are details of the amendments to the Scheme which the Government originally proposed, and - in the absence of any current legislative proposals - the most recent consultation document Adjudication under the Scheme - Guidance to Adjudicators produced by Construction Umbrella Bodies Adjudication Task Group.
