A Two Day Seminar
The construction industry has, in recent years, seen a number of important developments. Key among these is the development of adjudication as a form of dispute resolution. Adjudication rose to prominence through the NEC contracts and was later introduced through an addendum to the FIDIC contracts and, more recently, in the latest edition of FIDIC. Adjudication will be introduced into the local building contract through an amendment to the JBCC, to be introduced early in 2003. Adjudication has had marked success in other jurisdictions and clearly indicates the future of dispute resolution in the construction industry. Many contracts currently underway in South Africa and beyond contain adjudication provisions, yet most members of the construction industry are unclear as to what adjudication is, how it is applied, and how it differs from other forms of dispute resolution. Lawyers and construction personnel alike do not fully understand this form of dispute resolution and there are few people who understand the process sufficiently well to act as adjudicators.
