Event description


The Construction Industry Payment and Adjudication Act 2012 (CIPAA 2012) has taken the industry by storm. Recent statistics produced by AIAC show that there have been close to 1000 adjudication applications since the inception of CIPAA 2012. This trend will continue as parties in the industry are making use of the adjudication process provided under CIPAA 2012 to resolve payment disputes swiftly and cost effectively. In this one day workshop, we focus on the adjudication process under CIPAA 2012, particularly on how to prepare effective adjudication claims, responses and replies.
