Commercial & Industrial Construction Group Pty Ltd v King Construction Group Pty Ltd [2015] VSC 426

The above judgment from the State of Victoria, Australia addresses issues surrounding the validity of payment claims solely for work previously performed but not claimed in an earlier payment claim in respect of an earlier reference date under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2002 (vis Victoria’s version of the Construction Contracts Act, 2013).

With Dr. Nael Bunni busy getting the adjudication house in order in preparation for the imminent (albeit somewhat long awaited) commencement of the Construction Contracts Act, 2013, the conduct of adjudication hearings and their aftermath (the enforcement and resistance / challenge of Adjudication decisions and the conduct of arbitration / court proceedings in the lee of such decisions) shall soon form a quotidian part of our Members’ practices.

In that context, the Website of Minter Ellisson might be noted by Members as an accessible research start point for the search of Australian authority on adjudication.
