Adjudication and 
Enforcement Plans

Adjudication is a way of resolving construction disputes without resorting to lengthy and expensive court procedure. It enables a company to secure an enforceable judgment within a matter of weeks.


It is a quick and cost efficient method of resolving disputes with the adjudicator’s decision being and binding and enforceable on the parties.


Commercial mediation can help to resolve differences quickly and cost-effectively.  Mediation is one method of Alternative Dispute Resolution in which a neutral third party, the mediator, assists two or more parties in order to help them achieve an agreement on a matter in which they are in dispute. 


If used properly and at the right time in the life of a dispute it is an effective dispute resolution method.



Arbitration is another method of Alternative Dispute Resolution whereby the parties enter into an agreement under which they appoint a suitably qualified person (an “arbitrator”) to adjudicate a dispute and make an award.   Many commercial and construction contracts provide for dispute resolution in this way.  


Arbitration is often viewed as a more streamlined and less expensive method of resolving a dispute between two parties.
