Expert determination of construction dispute should have been allowed to proceed

Supreme Court dismisses appeal from Court of Appeal, and affirms order striking out proceedings on appeal from the High Court - where the original application had been for a stay on a reference to an independent architect for resolution of a construction dispute - on the grounds that: (a) reference to an independent expert was not the same as arbitration; (b) the reference to an independent expert was governed by the terms of the relevant contract; (c) the independent expert was entitled to determine matters of law if that was contemplated by the contractual terms; (d) the courts could only intervene if the independent expert stepped outside the terms of his remit; and (e) in the instant case, the independent expert should have been allowed to proceed with his determination.
