This programme forms the standard agenda for our NEC3 training courses or it can be tailored specifically for your organisation on an in-company basis - using your own contract scenarios.

This is a detailed one day course which gives an overview of the different types of contracts available within the NEC3 suite of contracts. It explores in detail the Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) which is the most commonly used form within the suite for managing a construction contract, which includes many of the core clauses which are common to the whole suite. The course reviews the various options available in terms of being a lump sum contract, target cost or a cost reimbursable type contract as well as looking in detail at the intricacies of understanding and administering the contract for the benefit of all involved in running a project. Whilst the contract is written such that it should be easy to use and understand, it is different culturally from other forms of contract and parties can get into difficulties if they do not understand or administer the contract.
