Paul Monaghan - City of London Corporation Open QuoteThe main reason we chose NEC for the Tower Bridge refurbishment works contract was that it fitted very well with our bespoke Pre-Construction Service Agreement for early contractor involvement with planning and design. In addition, our experience is that the market reacts adversely to some of the older, traditional contracts, particularly in relation to liabilities and allocation of risk. This often leads to tenders being heavily qualified or carrying a high premium. At Tower Bridge, the project risks were fully established and quantified as the design was developed under the Pre-Construction Services Agreement. Close Quote

Peter Barclay - Midlands Highway Alliance, UK Open QuoteWorking together with our partners we developed collaborative relationships which were proactive, interdependent, flexible, adaptable, fair, open and honest. During the early contractor involvement stage, detailed project programmes and specific project outputs were agreed. The use of NEC3 contracts ensured that effective project management principles were followed to ensure that the agreed outcomes were delivered in a timely manner.Close Quote

Rachel Morris - Institute of Clerks of Works and Construction Inspectorate of GB Open QuoteWe endorse NEC3: ECC Supervisor Accreditation for our existing members as well as those who seek to become members. The programme reflects the duties carried out by our members on an ECC project and represents a fantastic opportunity for them to gain additional recognition for their skills and expertise.Close Quote

William Lees - NEC Users' Group Workshop, September 2016 Open QuoteI enjoyed the discussions which took place as part of the presentation which showed how others are using the NEC and their experiences. I did feel that the presenter encouraged this and that it was to everyone's benefit.Close Quote

Robert Meaney - P Meaney Management Ltd Open QuoteSince participating in the NEC3 ECC Project Manager Accreditation programme my knowledge of NEC has undoubtedly increased; and with respect to professional credibility I think the programme is aptly named 'the gold standard' - all those looking to manage an ECC project in future should be strongly encouraged to enrol on the programme. Everything about it was good - the venue, the content and the presentation were first class. Close Quote

Wai Chi-Sing - Hong Kong Development Bureau Open QuoteThe main benefit of NEC3 contracts over conventional contracts is that they have partnering built in, encouraging the two contracting parties to work together to solve problems...Overall it is NEC’s collaborative spirit that helps to improve contract management, increase cost-effectiveness and improve project outcomes.Close Quote

Daniel Cook - The Highways Agency Open QuoteWe use NEC Contracts across the board because they're all collaborative, and we think working with suppliers rather than against them is the best way to achieve our objectives. They also represent really good management approaches; proactive in the way they deliver.Close Quote

David Allen - Crossrail Open QuoteNEC3 helped deliver the largest civil engineering project in Europe, on budget and with value for money. NEC3 helped the project hit 45 out of its 46 targets last year, narrowly missing only one.Close Quote

David Parish - Guernsey government Open QuoteThe NEC3 Supply Contract has worked well, even with the requirement to have two currencies - euros for the crane supply as delivered from Germany and a pounds sterling for demolition of the existing cranes. Furthermore the absence of references to any UK-specific legislation within the main clauses made it easier to fit the contract into Guernsey legislation than some other families of contracts.

David Reinke - Shell Open QuoteThe flexibility, clarity and stimulus to good management at the heart of NEC3 contracts, together with the fact they can and have been used successfully across the world, means they are ideal as the basis for a consistent set of contracts to be used by a global and diverse organisation such as Shell. We will be seeking to communicate their benefits to our colleagues across the group. Close Quote
