Under the Construction Contracts Act 2013 adjudication is available for resolving payment claims in the construction industry. This applies not just to building contracts but to sub-contracts and to professional services related to construction. It is a fast-track process of 28 days from the appointment of the adjudicator to the giving of a decision. Payment must then be made in accordance with the adjudicators decision. A party may refer the dispute to arbitration or to Court but payment cannot be withheld pending final resolution.
In anticipation of the coming into force of the Construction Contracts Act the Chartered Institute of Architect in association with the professional associations in the construction industry provided an intensive training and accreditation course for established arbitrators (Adjudication Conversion Course).. John Deaton is one of a small number of arbitrators who have successfully completed this course and is now a C.I.Arb certified adjudicator. Parties in dispute may choose an adjudicator by agreement or in default of agreement may apply to the Minister for Business and Employment to appoint an adjudicator. By exercising their option to choose an adjudicator parties can ensure that they obtain an appropriately qualified adjudicator and that the adjudicator's fees can be agreed in advance. John Deaton offers an independent adjudication service to the construction industry which includes: Adjudicator Advice to parties contemplating or taking part in adjudication.. appointment of adjudicator - read more...
