Engineering and Construction Contract

 

The NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) is the main construction contract within the NEC3 family, from which the options A-F are extracted. The Engineering and Construction Contract has been used on some of the highest profile projects in the world, including the London 2012 Olympics, as well as every day projects like the construction of buildings, highways and process plants. 
 
This contract should be used for the appointment of a contractor for engineering and construction work, including any level of design responsibility.

A short version of the contract is also available for less sophisticated projects, alongside the subcontract, how to guides, guidance notes and flow charts to help users get the most out of the contract.
