The NEC4 Engineering and Construction Short Contract (ECSC)
has been developed for the appointment of a contractor for engineering and construction work which does not require sophisticated management techniques, comprises straightforward work and imposes only low risks on both client and contractor. 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. Uncertainty about what is to be done and the corresponding risks and liabilities can lead to disputes and confrontation.
The ECSC clearly allocates risks, and the collaborative approach will reduce those risks and uncertainty for all the parties.
Delegates will gain an insight into when to use this form of contract, how to put it together, the contract strategy, and how it is managed effectively.
