When it was introduced 25 years ago, adjudication was intended to provide a quick-fire, low-cost mechanism for resolving construction disputes. Since that time, concerns developed that the process was becoming a prohibitively expensive option for dealing with lower value disputes. Some argue that adjudication needs to get ‘back to basics’ to continue to be relevant to such smaller disputes, and in 2020 the introduction of the Construction Industry Council (CIC) Low-Value Dispute Model Adjudication Procedure (LVD MAP) was a conscious attempt to cater to disputes below £50,000.
This webinar will examine how adjudication and ANBs can be made an attractive option for lower value disputes. Specifically, our panel of experts will explore:
How Adjudication has typically been perceived by parties to smaller disputes
How the CIC low-value dispute scheme operates and how it seeks to cater to lower value disputes
Ways in which adjudication can be further simplified to reduce costs for low-value disputes
Whether ANBs can do more to make adjudication a viable option for smaller disputes
This event is open to both CIArb members and non-members. Register to attend.
