RMP Construction Services Ltd v Chalcroft Ltd

Building contract – Adjudication. The Technology and Construction Court granted the claimant's application for summary judgment to enforce an adjudicator's award in its favour for works it had carried out works, under a construction contract, for the defendant. When considering whether to enforce adjudicators' decisions, a distinction had to be drawn between jurisdictional challenges to enforcement and challenges alleging substantive error. The adjudicator in the present case had had jurisdiction because, however, the contractual arrangements between the parties were correctly to be described, they mandated the use of the Scheme for Construction Contracts (England and Wales) Regulations 1998 and the adjudicator had been properly appointed by the scheme's procedure.
