The TCC decision in Bovis Lend Lease Ltd v Cofely Engineering Services [2009] EWHC 1120 provides a reminder that, where the contract stipulates how an adjudicator is to be nominated, strict compliance is required. Here, the court held that, as a matter of construction of a subcontract between a main building contractor and an engineering contractor, the parties had agreed that the RICS would be the nominating body. The claimant was not therefore entitled to the declaration that it sought by way of CPR Part 8 that its chosen adjudicator was the agreed adjudicator. The court noted that, if that decision was wrong, the express terms of the sub-contract were so confused that the Scheme for Construction Contracts would apply instead.
