The parties must first choose the best adjudicator, or rely on the adjudicator nominating authority to make that choice, from a panel of qualified, highly-trained and experienced adjudicators with knowledge of the subject matter in dispute.  Then, with a one-month time limit from start to finish, the parties must present their best case, submitting clear, concise documents to support their position, and then follow through the procedure until the adjudicator makes a determination.  Time is extremely tight.

Public infrastructure construction is a major component of Federal, Provincial and Municipal expenditures.  Construction Adjudication is fast becoming the mechanism of choice for resolving costly and time-consuming disputes between all the parties in the construction chain.

Four adjudicators will present their perspectives of the construction adjudication process, each with a different point of view:
 
Matt Molloy, from the UK where construction adjudication began 25 years ago;
Rosanna Eugeni, from Quebec where a pilot project  for public infrastructure projects has been operating for almost three years;
Jim Paul, from the Federal government where he was responsible for over a thousand projects a year as CEO at Defence Construction Canada; and
Robert Bales, from Ontario, where its statutory adjudication regime has been underway for just 18 months, and a very similar contractual process for provincial highways and bridges has been in place for over five years.

The parties must first choose the best adjudicator, or rely on the adjudicator nominating authority to make that choice, from a panel of qualified, highly-trained and experienced adjudicators with knowledge of the subject matter in dispute.  Then, with a one-month time limit from start to finish, the parties must present their best case, submitting clear, concise documents to support their position, and then follow through the procedure until the adjudicator makes a determination.  Time is extremely tight.

This presentation will address the adjudication process in each of the jurisdictions and illustrate what each party can do to present their best case to the adjudicator.  We will have time for questions, and will speak to the risks, pitfalls and strategic errors sometimes made in construction adjudications.
