This online module is designed to summarise the changes for existing users, enabling them to identify these where NEC4 will become their contract of choice.
To broaden your knowledge and keen to see how the contracts have developed into the new edition (NEC4) as well as the new functionality on offer – including the new contracts.
The particular emphasis of this module is comparisons between the NEC3 and the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC). Delegates attending this course should therefore have some knowledge and experience with NEC contracts in action.
NEC3 has made a significant contribution to the engineering and construction industry in particular, to do things differently and better. It is 12 years since NEC3 was published, and through a network of more than 300 companies who are regularly engaged via the NEC3 Users’ Group, and from clients generally, the NEC team has received feedback and requests for features and contract solutions to support on-going improvement.
NEC4 has taken the successful NEC3 contract suite and enhanced it, with some new features and some new forms of contract. All of the changes are a direct result of feedback from industry, to support methods and provide solutions which clients are demanding.
At the end of the course participants should be able to:
Summarise differences between NEC3 and NEC4 across key processes
Recognise where NEC4 will improve the procurement process
Describe the key features on the new NEC4 contracts
