General Conditions
Construction Act
Please explain how GC 3.15 in SSP 100S55, in particular GC 3.15.02, concurs with the legislated right to expeditiously adjudicate disputes as they arise in accordance with the Construction Act. Under the Construction Act, a dispute arises upon delivery of Notice of Adjudication, without pre-conditions. Therefore, what is the legal basis for the contractual pre-conditions and how are GC and legally enforceable if parties cannot contract out of the Construction Act, which is what these subsections appear to be attempting.

The inclusion of GC and are inline with the Construction Act. GC There is no dispute to trigger adjudication until MTO issues a Decision on a Compensation Request. Without a Dispute there is no need for a party to request adjudication. GC A contractor can opt to use adjudication if they disagree with a Decision issued on a Compensation Request. If however, a contractor decides to use the contractual Claim Review Process then the contractor needs to see the process through. Once the Claim review process is complete, then a contractor can choose adjudication if they disagree with the Decision.
