Rob Purton trading as Richwood Interiors v Kilker Projects Ltd

Building contract – Adjudication. The Technology and Construction Court held that the claimant was entitled to summary judgment on his application to enforce an adjudication decision. It held that, both for reasons of principle and pragmatism, at least in a case where there could be no doubt that the adjudicator, if properly informed, should and would have concluded that he had had jurisdiction and the proper basis of jurisdiction did not make a difference to the substantive outcome, the court should not shut out a claimant who came to the court to enforce the adjudicator's decision.
