Construction Adjudication & Payments Handbook

1st Aug 2013

Two members of Chambers – Dominique Rawley QC and Peter Land – have co-authored the Construction Adjudication and Payments Handbook, the first edition of which was published by Oxford University Press on 8th August 2013.

The book covers both the adjudication and payment provisions of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and subsequent legislation. It explains each of the major sections of the Act, identifies the changes introduced for contracts entered from 01 October 2011 onwards and addresses how the courts approach challenges to enforcement of adjudication decisions. Uniquely, after the discussion of each key topic by reference to the leading cases, the book sets out a chronological table of all cases relevant to that topic complete with a brief summary of the points of interest in each case. That structure allows the cases most pertinent to any particular circumstance to be rapidly identified with the result that the book should prove to be invaluable to the construction industry, adjudicators, legal practitioners and students alike.

“Given the thorough and accessible style adopted by the authors, it seems likely that this book will become indispensable for anyone in the construction industry who deals with contracts to which the Act applies.” – Chantal-Aimée Doerries QC, TECBAR Review.

“Written and compiled by four acknowledged experts whose experience and technical knowledge spans virtually all aspects of this field (including defence, energy and IT), the book also functions as a handy research resource. There are almost thirty pages of tables of cases and legislation, plus four appendices and a detailed index. Those involved in any aspect of adjudication within the construction industry, whether practitioners, adjudicators or students will find this book invaluable.” – Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers.
