Carillion Construction Ltd v Devonport Royal Dockyard Ltd

Citation: BLR 79 TCC

Nature of case:
Applying RJT Consulting v DM Engineering, the alleged agreement that the contract would become cost reimbursable was part of an oral agreement not evidenced in writing for the purposes of the HGCR Act.

The main contractor was in any event asking for clarification and so no dispute had arisen at the date of the Notice of Adjudication.  Accordingly, the adjudicator had no jurisdiction.
