It has become common internationally, and in some countries by legislation, for disputes to be resolved provisionally by adjudication. In Macob Civil Engineering Ltd v Morrison Construction Ltd  (B.L.R. 93 at 97), cited in Keating on Building Contracts (9th Ed. para 18-018), adjudication was described as:
"A speedy mechanism for settling disputes under construction contracts on a provisional interim basis, and requiring the decision of adjudicators to be enforced pending the final determination of disputes by arbitration, litigation or agreement. ... But Parliament has not abolished arbitration and litigation of construction disputes. It has merely introduced an intervening provisional stage in the dispute resolution process."
