Perception of the UK Adjudication Process

Peter Clyde

Peter Clyde (Addleshaw Goddard LLP) discusses the findings of the survey undertaken by Ian Trushell (Engineering and Built Environment, Glasgow Caledonian University) and himself.

Since 1998, a substantial literature has developed on the subject of Construction Adjudication in the United Kingdom. Over 620 legal cases have been reported in England, Wales and Scotland alone. In addition, the Adjudication Reporting Centre at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has published 12 reports and a compendium on important metrics relating to adjudication. The Adjudication Society has published many articles on various aspects of adjudication. What is missing, however, is a large, UK-wide survey of how practitioners actually perceive the adjudication process. This paper describes new research conducted by the Adjudication Reporting Centre at GCU, in conjunction with a leading firm of solicitors, based on over 200 construction and legal respondents.
