More than 300 young HK construction professionals attend NEC ECI webinar

More than 300 young Hong Kong construction professionals took part in a webinar in January 2022 on option X22 of the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC), which provides for early contractor involvement (ECI).

Jointly organised by the Institution of Civil Engineers Hong Kong Association’s graduates and students committee and the CIHT Hong Kong Region’s young professional committee, the event was presented by NEC Users’ Group
secretary Robert Gerrard.

He provided a detailed look at the key option X22 mechanisms of setting the budget, defining the two procurement stages, making forecasts, agreeing proposals for stage two, issuing notice to proceed to stage two, making changes to the budget and calculating incentive payments.

Option X22 sets out a two-stage process for ECC Option C (target contract with activity schedule) and Option E (cost reimbursable). The first stage provides for ECI in the design process, and the second stage provides for completing outstanding design and construction of the works.
