Dispute Resolution Appointments
Construction Adjudication is a well-used dispute resolution process in which an independent third party makes a rapid decision when the parties to a construction contract are in disagreement. The popularity of the procedure instituted by the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, together with the breadth of the definition of “construction contracts” have contributed greatly to the wide expansion of the use of the adjudication procedure. There have been a large number of TCC judgments in adjudication enforcement proceedings, which have both simplified the workings of the process in some areas and complicated it in others. TECBAR members have instigated the growth of the adjudication jurisprudence through their involvement as advocates in enforcement procedures, and many of them have developed real expertise in the field. They have also been frequently appointed as adjudicators so that TECBAR is able to provide a showcase of experienced adjudicators who are able to accept instructions and to act on very short notice. The Adjudication Scheme Clerk has developed significant experience in the appointment of adjudicators so that the process can be as swift and trouble-free as possible.
