Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom, Foxton, New Zealand
Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom was a project realised after 10 years of sustained effort in the partnership of Horowhenua District Council, Te Taitoa Māori o Te Awahou and the Dutch Connection Museum Trust. It provided a place for the people of Foxton and beyond to gather, enjoy and learn. In April 2016 a report was prepared that considered five criteria for selection of a contract. One of these criteria was collaboration – motivating the parties to work together. Another was transparency – achieving open book assurance of fair value. A weighted scoring of potential contract forms showed that NEC3 ECC Option C was the most suitable for this project.

Development Bureau and Works Departments, Hong Kong SAR Government
Sharing-Session-for-Promotion-of-Collaborative-Partnership-in-Hong-Kong.JPG While NEC PSC consultancies in Hong Kong would normally adopt Option A or C  for design and construction consultancy services, consultants would be reimbursed for actual payment of salaries and fringe benefits of Resident Site Staff and other related expenses under the Resident Site Staff Scheme to promote equitable risk sharing between the clients and consultants for site supervision costs to ensure the quality construction supervision and management. This reimbursement operation would be similar to NEC PSC Option E. To take forward the Resident Site Staff Scheme, additional conditions of contract clauses bridging the hybrid approaches have been introduced to NEC PSC consultancies in Hong Kong.
