Adjudication has become a technical term which means the statutory method of resolving disputes in the construction and engineering industry. This method is obligatory in many circumstances pursuant to The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996. The Act in effect means that every construction contract must provide for disputes to be resolved by adjudication.
Many such disputes have an insurance aspect. The benefit in instructing an Expedite Resolution adjudicator is that he or she will, in addition to all the usual skills and experience required of an adjudicator, also have experience of dealing with insurance based claims. This means that the parties will not have to spend time and money bringing the adjudicator up to speed on these aspects. They can also have confidence that outcome will be commensurate with an adjudicator having such experience.
