Sir Peter Coulson's book on Construction Adjudication was the first to deal comprehensively with the law and practice of adjudication in construction and engineering disputes and is now firmly established as the leading authority in the field.

Painstakingly revised, the new edition considers in detail over 50 new adjudications, including the first ever to be featured in the mainstream law reports (Westfields Construction Lt v Lewis [2013] 1 WLR 3377). It also includes full consideration of the impact of the coming into force of the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009.

Known for being 'learned and lucid' this work is the definitive text for both legal practitioners and construction professional looking for a clear analysis of the law and practice of adjudication

  • The leading authority in construction adjudication and practitioners' first port of call
  • Provides authoritative commentary by a High Court judge sitting in the Technology and Construction Court
  • Contains practical material on adjudication including a checklist of the most important points and cases and is written in a concise and manageable way, distilling all the principles into one comprehensive volume
New to this edition

  • Includes detailed explanation of the coming into force of the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009 and key subsequent case law
  • Contains analysis of over 50 additional cases, including cases from the Court of Appeal and the first ever adjudication decision quoted in the mainstream law reports (Westfields Construction Ltd v Lewis [2013] 1 WLR 3377)
  • Caters for professionals outside the construction field as adjudication becomes more popular as an alternative method of resolving civil and commercial cases
