Adair were appointed as an independent expert witness to provide a part 35 compliant expert witness report responding to the claimant and opposing expert report in an adjudication. We assisted with defending an adjudication with regard to the alleged negligence of the defendant that was appointed as the contract administrator. Alleged that the negligence of the contract administrator resulted in the increase in the contract value from £1.5mil to £3.5mil. Our role involved preparing an expert witness report defending the claim brought against the defendant for the increased cost within the adjudication. The adjudicator agreed with our report and awarded the claimant none of the costs being claimed.
