To what extent are main contractors using adjudication in the infrastructure sector and why/why not?
I am carrying out the proposal phase for my dissertation; above is my current working title. Before I can commence with my research I must justify why I want to carry out this research based on the current literature or lack of available.
I work in the infrastructure sector for a tier 1 contractor and in my experience have found that there is little if any inclination to use adjudication, instead the preferences seems to be to a strategy to try and agree revised contract terms/ sums.
I would like to know the following:
Is there is any leading literature/ research around who is using adjudication and why;
Is this topic worth researching and if yes why and if no why.
Thanks very much in advance for your assistance.
