NEC in Australia
Use of NEC3 contracts is increasing rapidly throughout the Australasian region as they continue to make a significant impact on the construction landscape. A number of clients including local authorities and water utilities have recently or are currently undertaking projects using one or more of the NEC3 suites of contracts, as industry stake holders look towards a collaborative way of contracting and more efficient, fast-track dispute management; core values reflected by all NEC3 Contracts.
NEC3 has been drafted for international use, and thus provides an alternative to existing commonly used forms of construction contract in Australia.

NEC Australasia Users' Group
In July 2011 the new NEC Australasia Users' Group was launched covering Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and adjacent Pacific Ocean Islands to reflect growing usage of NEC3 contracts in the region. The Users' Group is chaired by Warwick Fergusson of Meridian Energy, a major long-term user of NEC contracts in the region.
The NEC Australasia Users' Group has been established to service NEC3 users in their region more effectively, allowing us to be more responsive within your market context and time-zone. Members of the group get access to local forums and are able to share information, knowledge and skills to get the very best out of the NEC3 contracts. There is also a regular series of workshops and conferences. This new regional group structure ensures that all events will be focused on issues pertaining to the local market.
Members of the Australasia Users' Group will also receive a complete set of NEC3 contracts and documents, plus a copy of all new documents when they are published.
