Peter Walkden - Magnox Open QuoteThe NEC3 contract suite has become a cornerstone of the Magnox programme and has been used to great effect; from the adoption of better contract management techniques to driving a cultural change based around learning and continuous improvement. The contract management processes and collaborative approach to working have helped us deliver improved value for money in meeting the challenges faced. Close Quote

Steve Rowsell - Crossrail Open QuoteFollowing a review of available contracts and lessons learnt from recent major projects, we decided to use the NEC3 suite because it supports the desired culture and way of working, provides robust contract management processes, achieves a fair and sensible allocation of risk and can be used for all project requirements to give consistency in approach.

Christina Mittenshaw-Hodge - The Coal Authority Open QuoteWithin each contract, the pain / gain is linked to the achievement of key performance indicators and the share is adjusted depending on whether these are achieved. The use of NEC3 contracts on the Saltburn project has minimised the impact of change on the scheme to date compensation events have only raised the target by 1.6%. Close Quote

Jeremy Dixon - Isaac Construction Company Open QuoteNEC3 is based on a simple philosophy of partnering, collaboration and a best-for-everyone approach, and not a master-servant style of traditional contracts used. The contract went very well and the incentive to share possible time, financial and safety issues promoted a non-adversarial approach to contracting. We are very keen to work under this type of contract on future projects. Close Quote

Neil Earnshaw - Constructing Solutions Open QuoteFollowing a presentation to the Trust about the NEC3 TSC, its selection to underpin the new contract was an obvious decision. This was given added weight with the endorsement of the NEC3 by the Office of Government Commerce, which confirmed alignment with Government procurement policy. Close Quote

Adam Green - Carillion Infrastructure Open QuoteCarillion is one of the founder members of the NEC Users’ Group and has seen it flourish out of all expectation from its early inception. We must applaud the Users’ Group Helpline which has always provided very clear and rapid responses.Close Quote

Luk Wai-hung - Drainage Services Department Open QuoteThe 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.

Martin Pratt - Amey Open QuoteAmey have been Platinum Users’ Group member for three years now. This has been of significant benefit in many ways. In particular the access it gives me to expert panel members for views and advice in live contractual situations. We have had in-house NEC training on a Project and it was professionally arranged and delivered, giving a good insight in to the mechanics of the NEC Suite of Contracts to the attendees who can then put this to practical use.Close Quote

Michael Cox - Development Director Open QuoteWe believe the NEC will attract world-class vendors required for the efficient and timely delivery of the Al Raha Beach development. Close Quote

National Construction Contracts and Law Survey 2015 - NBS Open QuoteWhen we look at which contracts people do use, we can see a shift in contract use, with NEC contracts becoming more often used (…) The shift is not small. Since 2011, there has been an increase of 14 percentage points in the number of people telling us they use NEC contracts most often.Close Quote
