This should be considered within the context of any previous communications between the parties. In this case it was held that although the adjudicator had jurisdiction to decide whether sums were payable to the referring party, he correctly decided that he did not have jurisdiction to award sums to the responding party as a net sum, as this was not part of the dispute in question. Furthermore, the Court could not decide summarily that a specific amount was due to the responding party on the basis of the Adjudicator’s award as the Adjudicator did not...

For more information visit http://www.cms-cmck.com/Construction/Construction-Disputes Judgment date: 8 April 2014 (1) Provided that it makes its position clear, a party to an adjudication can still rely on a general reservation of jurisdiction after publication of an adjudicator’s decision so that it can apply under the slip rule or make a payment without losing its right to challenge the adjudicator’s decision;  (2) the word “site” in section 105(2)(c) of the Housing, Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (as amended) (“the Construction Act”) was given  a broad meaning so that it applied not only to the immediate area where the works were to be carried out but also to a much larger area owned and occupied by the same party who was to derive benefit from the works.  The works...

For more information visit http://www.cms-cmck.com/Construction/Construction-Disputes  Judgement date: 4 April 2014 Summary In this case, the Court decided that, for the purposes of a conclusive evidence clause in the contract between the parties, adjudication proceedings were ‘commenced’ when the notice of adjudication was given, rather than when a referral notice was given to an adjudicator.  The Court also held that as the Notice of Adjudication in question gave substantive and effective notice of the dispute being raised, incorrect identification of the body nominating the adjudicator and identification of and service at an address not specified in the Contract, were not sufficient to invalidate the Notice. Nor was the Notice invalidated by the fact that an adjudicator was subsequently appointed by an incorrect...
