Albert Cheng - Construction Industry Council, Hong Kong Open QuoteThe promotion of NEC do provide a platform to have a collaborative working relationship rather than adversarial relationship between the partners and contractors resulting in a more productive industry.Close Quote

Andrew Emery - Resort Development and Strategy Planning Manager Open QuoteWe regularly use NEC contracts to manage our various capital works schemes and framework contractors. The flexibility of NEC enabled payment applications to be agreed up front as part of the contract, along with regular visits to the off-site factory to monitor progress. As a result our relationship with the contractor was strong and maintained throughout the project.Close Quote

David Abdy - Sunderland City Council Open QuoteWe chose NEC primarily to encourage a collaborative and cooperative approach within the project team but with clear lines of responsibility and governance. The NEC suite’s widespread use throughout the UK construction market was also a key consideration over other forms of contract, ensuring familiarity throughout the supply chain.Close Quote

David Ferroussat - Heathrow Airport Limited Open QuoteNEC4 is that step change innovation from NEC which builds on the learning from previous versions and pakcs up the key attributes we should be engendering into a collaborative environment.Close Quote

David Hunter - Chartered Institute of Building Open QuoteHaving completed the ECC Project Manager Accreditation, I have a lot more confidence in my own knowledge and understanding and have been able to integrate it into my practices, delivering as both project manager and commercial manager on projects...whatever part of the supply chain you are in...it's an accreditation well worth having.Close Quote

Jaco Uys - Mott MacDonald Africa (Pty) Ltd Open QuoteThe majority of packages were contracted using the NEC3 suite of contracts due to their unique characteristics. They stimulate good management of the relationship between two parties to the contract; they can be used in a wide variety of commercial situations, for a wide variety of types of work in any location; and they are clear, simple and written in plain English using language and a structure which is straightforward and easily understood.Close Quote

John Roberts - Jacobs, UK Open QuoteNEC provided a basis for control and responsibility for all parties, removing grey areas of aspects like responsibility and ownership when works had the potential to overlap from the three contractors. In addition, the NEC discipline of valuing the works monthly and dealing with changes as they occurred rather than storing them up for a large claim on the final account was a major benefit that was largely achieved in practice.Close Quote

Marc Palmer - Marc Palmer Project Management Open QuoteNEC was a great fit with the client's aspirations for this community project. It combined a project management system for transparency and good decision making with an ethos that encouraged everyone to contribute. NEC helped us in doing things right and doing the right thing.

Matt McBrien - AECOM UK Open QuoteThe NEC early warning process to notify the other party of emerging risks or issues proved to be particularly useful. It enabled the parties to discuss issues openly and to determine the most practical solutions at the earliest opportunity. Close Quote

Nick Abbey - Mace Group Open QuoteIt was only down to the collaborative approach engendered by NEC that we were able to exceed the client’s expectations. Working on such a confined site with numerous party walls, the design and construction teams had to work extremely closely with each other to develop solutions that not only produced inspiring architecture but did this in a way that ensured buildability and safety.Close Quote
