The Society are delighted to announce the launch of an Adjudication Panel of experienced dispute resolvers to deal with construction contract payment disputes.  The launch event took place on Tuesday, 25th October with a wine reception prior to presentations on the new panel. It’s the first time Statutory Adjudication will be available under construction contracts in Ireland.

The move follows the passing of the Construction Contracts Act 2013 which brings statutory adjudication as a means to settle payment disputes into Irish construction contracts for the first time. The new process applies to all construction contracts entered into after 25th July 2016.

The SCSI panel of adjudicators is available in the Dispute Resolution Section of the Society’s website, located here.
