NEC has launched a new online platform designed to connect NEC users worldwide, plus a new monthly podcast series on how the contracts are being used to deliver high quality projects.
NEC Contracts Community App
The NEC Contracts Community App provides an online space which brings NEC users, communities and content together in a private interactive platform. It offers online themed discussion forums for members to join and connect with each other to share expertise and best practice in their particular sector or market. There are also resource hubs which offers a diverse range of content, including papers, videos and podcasts relating to a particular NEC theme or topic. NEC Users’ Group members will have exclusive access to content such as podcast episodes and recorded event presentations and slide decks.
The app is free to download onto mobile devices from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. The desktop version can be reached at community.neccontract.com
NEC Spotlight podcast
NEC has also launched a new monthly podcast series exclusively for NEC Users’ Group Members. The NEC Spotlight Podcasts will feature interviews with senior project team members and NEC practitioners to show how collaborative-style NEC contracts are helping deliver high quality built-environment projects around the world: quickly, cost-effectively and fairly. The first episode, released in June, features an interview with Mark Thurston and Keith Lomas from HS2, which is currently the world’s biggest NEC-procured project. They discuss why NEC was chosen for the £73 billion railway, how it is benefitting delivery and lessons learned to date.
