Adjudicators must meet the deadlines set by the Scheme For Construction Contracts. A spate of recent cases shows that the timetable must be strictly observed. Judge Coulson said that the whole point of adjudication is to give priority to speed of decision making rather than accuracy of decision. "What matters is a quick decision, not necessarily a correct one." Failure by the adjudicator to meet a time stipulation will only be disregarded if the parties to the dispute have sanctioned such non-compliance.
