The industry has seen the introduction and rapid rise of so called “smash and grab” adjudications in the past few years but what does the term mean? Are such adjudications seen as an abuse of the system, or simply a party to a construction contract applying the rules to their specific mechanisms? Case law is constantly and swiftly evolving to address this issue and parties are advised to be acutely aware of their obligations and liabilities when it comes to the payment terms within their construction contract.
This lecture will address the key elements of the Construction Act with regard to payment arrangements, how these elements are transposed into the contracts in use in the industry and the common pitfalls and how the parties to a contract can protect themselves. It will reflect upon actual examples, some of which have been successful and some not, and will review some of the current case law on the matter. This talk will be beneficial to engineers, project managers, contract administrators and students alike.
