This one day workshop offers delegates the opportunity to learn more about the recently launched NEC4 Alliance Contract as well as Managing Risk and Liability under the NEC4 Engineering & Construction Contract.  These two sessions proved incredibly popular at the NEC Annual Seminar in June, and so we are running them again for delegates who weren’t able to attend the conference.
These intimate masterclass style workshops are a perfect environment to learn more about the practical application side of the contracts, whilst allowing delegates the chance to be part of an interactive learning group, benefit from live Q&A with NEC experts and network with other NEC users’ in your local community.
