Stellite Construction Ltd v Vascroft Contractors Ltd

Adjudication – Jurisdiction. The Technology and Construction court held that, applying settled law to the facts, there had been no breach of the rules of natural justice where an adjudicator had held that time had been set at large such that the claimant property developer was not entitled to liquidated damages from the defendant contractor as claimed. Accordingly no declaratory relief was granted on that issue. However, the court held that the adjudicator had acted outside his jurisdiction in holding that a reasonable time for completion was 5 March 2016 and declaratory relief was granted on that issue.
