Construction Dispute - Adjudication

Brant Construction Quantum Experts

Construction Dispute - Adjudication

Brant has considerable experience in Construction Dispute – Adjudication, representing Clients as either the Referring or Responding party.

We recognise and respond to the importance for clear, concise, and well-presented Referrals.

Equally we understand and react to the urgent response needed when a Responding party is “ambushed” by an unexpected Referral.

Adjudication is often “quick and rough” justice. It is considered to be an interim position prior to Arbitration or Litigation. It is therefore important to obtain the right result and negate the need for further proceedings.

In considering whether to promote Adjudication procedures, or when faced with a Referral, it is important to establish the following:

  • Is there a written contract?
  • Is the Contract a Construction Contract as defined by the Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act 1996? And where appropriate superseded by the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009?
  • Has a dispute crystallised?
  • Does the appointed Adjudicator have jurisdiction?

Brant Associates can advise on all of the above considerations and take the necessary steps to promote, or defend a Client’s interests.

Promoting or defending an Adjudication can tie up significant Client resources, distracting personnel from their everyday duties.

Brant can deal with all aspects of an Adjudication thus keeping to a minimum the involvement of a Client’s own personnel. Alternatively, we can provide guidance to our Client’s own personnel or, work alongside a Construction Lawyer, whereby we can concentrate solely on the quantum and time issues.
