Description

Overview

The NEC4 Design Build and Operate Contract (DBO) has been developed for the appointment of a contractor to operate a client’s asset for a period of time, and during that period undertake significant new build or refurbishment to support the operational requirements.

It combines and places responsibility for usually disparate functions (design, construction, operation or maintenance) with a single supplier.

People will be motivated to play their part in collaborative management if it is in their commercial and professional interest to do so. Uncertainty about what is to be done and the corresponding risks and liabilities can lead to disputes and confrontation.

The DBO clearly allocates risks, and the collaborative approach will reduce those risks and uncertainty for all the parties.

Why Enrol?

Delegates attending this course will gain:

  • An insight into when to use this form of contract
  • How to put it together, the contract strategy
  • How it is managed effectively.

​Duration

This one day training course starts at 09:00 and finishes at 17:00 with refreshment breaks mid-morning and afternoon, plus lunch.
