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 has undertaken 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 contractor.
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 contract clearly allocates risks, and the collaborative approach will reduce those risks and uncertainty for all the parties.
The course is only for candidates who have undertaken either the NEC4 ECC (Project Manager) or the NEC4 TSC (Service Manager) Accreditation and who are looking for a top-up course focusing on the DBO contract.
At the end of the course participants should be able to:
- Be aware of the critical differences between ECC or TSC (whichever accreditation route taken).
- Describe the philosophy of NEC and the behaviours needed to ensure success
- Understand when and how to use DBO over ECC and TSC
- Recognise the differences and provide advice on appropriate contract strategies
- Know how to prepare and use the Contract Data and Scope
- Define the roles and responsibilities of key parties
- Apply important DBO clauses such as early warning, plan, communications and compensation events
- Recognise the significance of the Performance Table and the Operational Requirements
- Manage a DBO contract effectively.
This training course starts at 09:00 and finishes at 17:00 plus a lunch break.
All timings, except the start time, are approximate and may be adjusted to suit natural breaks in the lesson.
Upon successful completion of the programme, you will receive accreditation as an NEC4 DBO Service Manager and can request to be added onto the ICE Register for Accredited NEC Professionals held by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
