Description

Overview

Early contractor involvement (ECI) allows the Contractor to be appointed under a two-stage ECC contract before details of what is to be constructed have been fully developed and priced. This enables the Contractor to take part in the design development and construction planning stage of a project. This approach supports improved team working, innovation and planning and is now widely recognised as beneficial.

NEC has developed an additional clause to be used with the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) Options C and E where an ECI approach is required. This additional clause is aimed at promoting collaboration through the whole project, and sharing the benefits gained through collaboration.

 
This course is intended for clients and their supply chains to understand the provisions of the additional ECI clauses to enhance their relationships and benefit their businesses. 

Why enrol?

  • Know when to use ECI
  • Be able to prepare the additional parts of tender documents for ECI and appraise tenders
  • Understand important ECI clauses and processes
  • Understand the roles and responsibilities of the key parties
