Siteman Painting and Decorating Services Ltd v Simply Construct (UK) Ltd

Construction contract – Adjudication – Enforcement of award – Adjudicator's jurisdiction. Sheriff Court: Granting decree against the defender in an action in which the pursuer sought to enforce an adjudicator's decision and the defender challenged the adjudicator's jurisdiction, the court rejected contentions that the adjudicator lacked jurisdiction because a claim of sufficient clarity and precision was not referred to adjudication, and that the pursuer had referred multiple disputes to adjudication without the defender's consent: it therefore held that the adjudicator did not fall into jurisdictional error and his decision was not unenforceable on that account.
