Original price was: RM420.00.Current price is: RM378.00.

Construction Adjudication in Malaysia examines legal principles which govern the application of the CIPA Act 2012. It examines and analyses most of the important judicial decisions on construction adjudication made by the courts in Malaysia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore. Since the publication of the second edition, there have been more than 200 reported judicial decisions from the courts in Malaysia, including the Federal Court decisions in Jack-In-Pile (M) Sdn Bhd v Bauer (M) Sdn Bhd and Ireka Engineering & Construction Sdn Bhd v PWC Corp Sdn Bhd.

Organised in 22 systematically-structured chapters, the book provides in-depth and practical guidance on all stages of the adjudication process, from the filing of a payment claim, to the commencement of adjudication proceedings, the management of the adjudication proceedings up to the delivery of the adjudication decision, as well as enforcement, stay and challenge of adjudication decisions. This is topped off with an easy-to-understand and comprehensive Practice Guide which provides a step-by-step framework to successfully navigate the entire adjudication process.

The present work is a new and revamped edition of the highly regarded first and second editions, which have been described as a ‘seminal’ book on adjudication in Malaysia, and often referred to in Malaysian court judgments. This edition will continue to serve as a useful reference for judges, legal practitioners, adjudicators and students, as well as other stakeholders in the construction industry including employers, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and consultants.
