Details :

Construction adjudication as an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is coming into Hong Kong via legislation. Contractual application is not new in many parts of the world.  The benefits of adjudication can arrive as soon as today when the construction industry starts understanding it, knowing how to tap onto all its goodies, and to avoid the unnecessarily miscarriage effects out of its inherent nature, purpose, features and characteristics.  The dynamic equilibrium for the best results in adjudication as an ADR sets on the procedural efficiency vs rough justice.  What is not? 



The seminar will go through the core features of construction adjudication to induce the interests of the audience to become construction adjudicators eventually as a step to welcome the forthcoming contractual and statutory adjudication as a definite part of life in the construction practice, and a step ahead to start considering helping others resolve their construction disputes in a more satisfactory manner.
