Cleveland Bridge wins latest Wembley claim


STEEL FABRICATOR Cleveland Bridge last week won a £500,000 adjudication award in its long running payment dispute with Wembley stadium main contractor Multiplex.

The latest award brings the total won by Cleveland to £2.48M, following awards of £1.5M on 22 October and £423,000 two days earlier.

Another adjudication result was expected later this week.

The adjudication rulings came after Muliplex launched legal proceedings against Cleveland, claiming it was owed £14M.

The contractor said last week that it was also pursuing a £21M claim against Multiplex for additional payments for work on the structure's main steel arch.

The steel fabricator and erector gave initial notice of this claim in July after it was thrown off the stadium for alleged breach of contract (NCE 8 July).

'The two-part claim concerns our belief that payment was withheld for work on the stadium arch and for losses to the company caused by the termination of the contract, ' a Cleveland Bridge spokeswoman told NCE.

She said it was unlikely that the case would reach the courts until late next year or the beginning of 2006.

A counter claim by Multiplex against Cleveland has already been filed. Multiplex refused to comment.
