Webinar: Construction Law – practical completion and adjudication replay | WGCD Framework – Lot 8

As part of our WGCD Lot 8 – Major IT & Commercial Contracts webinar series, Matthew Stevens and Jade Zelko explain practical completion and adjudication.

Matthew discusses the practical and legal meaning of the commonly used, but often misunderstood, phrase “practical completion” in construction contracts.

Jade Zelko provides an introduction to construction adjudication by considering the “5 W’s”:

  • Why was adjudication introduced?
  • What is adjudication?
  • Where can you find the adjudication process?
  • Who is the adjudicator?
  • When should parties use adjudication?

In doing so, Jade also touches upon the types of disputes that are commonly referred to adjudication and provides practical suggestions on what is needed to bring an adjudication.
