The Applicant applied to set aside two decisions made by an adjudicator, under the Building Industry Fairness (Security of Payment) Act 2017 (Qld), for want of jurisdiction. The Applicant successfully set aside one adjudication decision on the basis that two payment claims had been made for the same reference date. The First Respondent successfully defended the second adjudication decision, although there were issues agitated in relation to whether the adjudication application had been properly served, whether the payment claim had been identified, and whether the adjudicator properly considered whether he had jurisdiction.
Florence Chen appeared on behalf of the first respondent, instructed by Colin, Biggers & Paisley.
