THE CAASA PANEL OF ADJUDICATORS
Adjudication was developed to allow for construction contract disputes to be resolved on an interim basis more quickly and cost effectively than resolution through arbitration or litigation. In usual circumstances, adjudicators have to render their decision within 28 days from appointment.
The adjudicator’s decision is binding unless or until the dispute is finally determined by court proceedings, arbitration or by agreement of the parties via negotiation or mediation. Its objective is to provide a fast working solution to an issue (pending the outcome of, or without the need for, a more formal dispute resolution procedure) so that parties can quickly resume or continue work under the contract.
