- When is a structure 'part of the land' (Savoye v Spicers)
- Practical implications
- On what basis was the structure said to form 'part of the land'?
- Court details
Dispute Resolution analysis: Akenhead J enforced an adjudication decision in respect of a contract for the supply and installation of a substantial conveyor system at a factory warehouse. The defendant had challenged the adjudicator’s jurisdiction on the basis that the contract was not subject to adjudication under the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (HGCRA 1996). However, the challenge failed as Akenhead J accepted that the machinery formed ‘part of the land’ and therefore fell within the scope of HGCRA 1996. Matthew Thorne of 4 Pump Court considers the judgment and its practical implications when determining whether a structure is part of the land for the purposes of the construction operations requirement in HGCRA 1996.
