With construction forming part of the bedrock of industry in England and Wales it is inevitable that disputes will arise from time to time. Parties can typically fall out over non-payment, failure to complete or even the standard of workmanship.

High profile cases in recent times has shown that even the largest construction companies are vulnerable in the modern climate and how any delay in payment can have a knock-on effect all the way down to the individual contractor. It is vitally important therefore that parties understand how to try and resolve disputes quickly and efficiently.

Things can also move a little bit too fast if you are not prepared, with the adjudication process being designed to be a swiftly moving, interim remedy to a dispute arising out of a construction contract.
