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.

So this webinar examines:

  • How Adjudication has been perceived by parties in smaller disputes
  • How the CIC Low Value Dispute Model operates
  • Ways to further simplify Adjudication to reduce costs for low value disputes
  • If further improvement by ANBs can be made to improve Adjudication for smaller disputes
