The dispute resolution process called Construction Adjudication was first established following the passing of the Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act 1996.
It applies to all normal “construction work”, not only to housing but need not apply to work carried out for owner-occupiers. It was originally intended to provide a rapid, rough-and-ready, but only temporarily-binding means of keeps cash flowing in the construction industry. Over the years since then, the process has become more complicated, with extensive case law applying to all aspects of the procedure.
