The ECC has been developed for the appointment of a contractor for engineering and construction project work, including any level of design responsibility. It provides a modern method for clients, designers, contractors and project managers to work collaboratively to consistently achieve their objectives.
People will be motivated to play their part in collaborative management if it is in their commercial and professional interest to do so.
