Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) is a non-traditional procurement route, where a contractor’s skills are introduced early in a project to bring design and cost efficiencies to the pre-construction phase. ECI is a two-stage process where the first provides for contractor involvement in the design process, and the second provides for completing outstanding design and construction of the works.

This workshop goes through the details of optional clause X22 in the NEC4 ECC. We explain when ECI could be used and how best to utilize it. The workshop will highlight the key areas in the clause including:
  • Setting the Budget
  • Defining the Stages
  • Proposals for Stage Two
  • Notice to proceed to Stage Two
  • Changes to the Budget
  • Incentive payments

Subcontracting is provided for in clause 26 of the NEC4 ECC. Subcontracting is a defined term and we will consider the process of appointment by Contractor and acceptance by Project Manager including subcontract documents and pricing information in certain of the Options. We will also look at procurement, establishing open market rates, procurement procedures and how Disallowed Cost may arise.
