The Construction Contracts Act 2013 introduces adjudication for the construction industry in Ireland for the first time. The essence of adjudication is in providing a means whereby disputes as to payment under a construction contract are resolved quickly and cheaply.

The key feature distinguishing adjudication from other processes is that the money found due by the adjudicator must be paid pending the outcome of arbitration or litigation. Its primary function therefore is to ensure cash flow for contractors and sub-contractors.

Leading construction lawyer Anthony Hussey’s new book is the first to provide a section by section analysis of the Act itself, an analysis of the Code of Practice which will be implemented by statutory instrument at the same time as the Act itself is brought into force, and a discussion of the likely constitutional issues to which the legislation will give rise.

This practical legal reference is aimed at all those involved in construction contract disputes be they lawyers, architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, contractors and sub-contractors.
