The NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract is now the most commonly used standard form of contract for engineering and infrastructure projects. It is the contract of choice for UK projects such as High Speed 1 (and is expected to be used on High Speed 2), London 2012 Olympic Games, Crossrail and programmes of work such as Highways England’s Collaborative Delivery Framework. It is also increasingly being used to procure international projects, particularly government works contracts.
The NEC3 ECC form is very different from the other standard forms such as ICE/ICC, JCT, GC/Works and FIDIC in a range of ways including in relation to the various procedures which must be followed in order to administer the contract and secure entitlements. Successfully administering the NEC3 form is important to ensure the parties receive their entitlements under the contract. Moreover, if operated properly, the NEC3 form can serve as an effective project management tool and help to reduce disputes through its collaborative philosophy.
In this webinar Tom Pemberton (Partner) and James Vernon (Partner) speak about the NEC3 ECC and the key issues to be aware of when using with this form of contract. The webinar also provides practical tips which can help improve your current procedures.
