The complex nature of construction and engineering projects make them prone to disputes. The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act of 1998 introduced adjudication, which provides a faster and significantly cheaper method of resolving them than arbitration or litigation. A group of distinguished industry players from a variety of backgrounds held a conference in November 2001 to take stock of all the key court decisions on adjudication to date and examine their impact upon the process. The chapters of this book, written by Rudi Klein, Neil Jones, Guy Cottam, Marion Rich, Peter McCartney, Tony Bingham, Issaka Ndekugri and Victoria Russell, present a combined view of the issues from the perspectives of referring parties, respondents, adjudicators and legal or expert advisors to disputing parties. Students and practitioners of construction law should find this an invaluable guide to the fastest emerging procedure for dispute resolution.
