Get the advanced skills necessary to be able to successfully manage a project using the NEC Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC), and become part of a unique group of accredited NEC professionals.
We are an employer preparing the contract data for an ECC contract. We wanted the contractor to commence work on the site as soon as possible, so can we have the access date before the starting date?
We are using the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) option A (priced contract with activity schedule) on a develop-and-construct project. If an instruction for additional works is given after the completion date, and the instruction changes the works information and is a compensation event, what effect does this have on the defects date?
In a project using ECC option B (priced contract with bill of quantities) the bill of quantities was issued to tenderers to price. The successful contractor returned the priced bill of quantities but in a different format so that it aligned with its subcontract packages. In rearranging the bill of quantities items the contractor missed off some measurable works, according to the method of measurement. The works information has not changed but is it correct to assume this becomes a compensation event under clause 60.6, even though it is an error originally made by the contractor?
