ADRIC is launching new Construction Adjudication Model Framework, Training and Designations!
ADRIC and its partner, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), have developed a new Model Framework for Construction Adjudication across Canada to set the standard for the management and administration of this new field of ADR. You can access the Model Framework document by clicking here.
And plan to join our introductory webinar on April 28th – scroll down for more information!
Based on years of public consultation in Ontario and at the Federal level, legislation and regulations for statutory interim adjudication are now in effect or soon to be in many provinces. The ADRIC-RICS Model Framework provides comprehensive guidance for all jurisdictions in Canada to achieve an ADR system that will be consistent across the country, based on the 95% success achieved since the first introduction of interim adjudication in the UK 25 years ago.
ADRIC members with appropriate construction experience may soon apply to become ADRIC Qualified Adjudicators (Q.Adj) and members of the RICS Global Panel of Dispute Resolvers and Expert Witnesses upon their completion of the ADRIC-RICS Canada Adjudicator Training Program, soon to be offered online, and their acceptance following an extensive assessment and interview process.
Industry organizations, their advisors and the public will be offered a similar program focused on the use of this ADR process to provide a balanced and fair application of construction adjudication as we seek to achieve 95% success across Canada.
ADRIC will announce when training and applications are available.
