    4th edition

Adjudication in the Building Industry should be compulsory reading for students of architecture, engineering, building and construction management, and accountants whose clients carry out or commission building or engineering work. Prompt payment has always been a problem in the building and construction industry. To address the problem, starting with NSW in 2000 and ending with Western Australia in 2021 every State and the ACT have enacted a Security of Payment Act. Radical legislative changes, particularly in NSW and Queensland, and recent High Court decisions have made previous texts on Security of Payment and Adjudication, including the 3rd edition of this book, outdated.

Construction Claims is for parties to building or construction contracts, their consultants and lawyers and all who are interested in or studying construction law. It covers statutory compulsory rapid adjudication, which has now spread to all States, the Northern Territory and the ACT.
