Carillion Construction v Devonport Royal Dockyard

Citation: BLR 15 CA

Nature of case:
This is part of extensive litigation arising from the dockyard redevelopment project, being an appeal on the adjudicator’s powers to award interest.  The Court of Appeal dismissed the client’s appeal against the TCC decision.  There is no free-standing power to award interest under cl.20(c) of the Scheme.  However, in the circumstances, the client had not disputed the power of the adjudicator to award interest on  moneys outstanding.  The parties had therefore agreed that interest should come within the scope of the adjudication, conferring on him a jurisdiction he would not otherwise have had.
