The Construction Clients' Board

The Construction Clients' Board (formerly Public Sector Construction Clients' Forum) recommends that public sector organisations use the NEC3 contracts when procuring construction. Standardising use of this comprehensive suite of contracts should help to deliver efficiencies across the public sector and promote behaviours in line with the principles of Achieving Excellence in Construction.

In addition to this endorsement, NEC is recommended by the South African Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) for use in that country. NEC3 was praised in the recent UK Parliamentary 'Construction Matters' report, which calls for transparent and non-adversarial forms of contract to support integrated supply chains. The report states that NEC3 is 'setting the benchmark' in this area.

What our Customers Say

Open Quote The use of NEC3 terms for both main contract and subcontract provided a common platform for the project manager, contractor and subcontractor, especially in dealing with compensation events and risk management. With uniform use of the NEC3 risk management mechanism, all contracting parties could work collaboratively and have site problems resolved rapidly to ensure timely completion of the works.
