PP Construction Ltd v Geoffrey Osborne Ltd

Contract – Construction. The parties had referred a contractual dispute to adjudication which had led to an award being made against the defendant. The claimant requested rectification of the award on the basis of a clerical mistake. The defendant did not pay the full amount of the revised award, but paid the lesser sum awarded under the first adjudicator's decision. The Technology and Construction Court allowed the claimant's application for summary judgment as the claimant had correctly initiated an operative request for amendment of the award, which had been actioned within the specified time, in accordance with the relevant contractual provision.
