Introduction to the Engineering and Construction Contract

December 5 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Why you should attend this workshop?

(This workshop is recommended for everyone currently involved with or about to be working under an ECC contract including project managers, contract managers, quantity surveyors, clients, consultants, planners, contractors and their supply chain. This session will be suitable for those who are relatively new to these forms of contract as well as those who are already more experienced in the contract and looking to enhance their level of knowledge and understanding)

This one-day workshop introduces you to the common philosophies of the NEC family of contracts and focuses in more detail upon the key mechanics and provisions of the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) highlighting changes from NEC3. You will gain an understanding of the key aspects of ECC from all parties’ perspectives.

You will learn about:
• the philosophy and commonality amongst all the contracts within the suite of NEC4 contracts and fundamental changes from NEC3
• the use and appropriate contract strategy to adopt when choosing both primary options (A-F) and secondary options (X1-X22)
• appreciating the use of Contract Data, Scope and Site Information
• considering factors involved when preparing tender documents and assessing tender submissions
• considering common amendments that are often made in the form of “Z clauses” and their potential to alter the dynamics or risk profile of an un-amended contract
• roles and responsibilities of the key Parties
• the important ECC clauses and processes, in particular early warning, the programme, Early Warning Register, communications and compensation events
• Understand how to apply ECC in practice and achieve satisfactory solutions to problems

Whilst each workshop does have handout notes issued in advance, it is beneficial for attendees to have access to an NEC contract so that they can check wording of the actual clauses in line with the presentations and case studies. Ideally this would be the NEC4 version of the Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) or Engineering and Construction Subcontract (ECS) but access to an NEC3 version would alternatively still be useful.”
