Barry Trebes explains the NEC3 Autumn workshops

NEC is running another set of Users’ Group events. The theme of these autumn workshops are "Z clauses" and "NEC3 active leadership".

Morning session: Z Clauses
Z clauses can be inserted into NEC contracts to enable parties to agree additional conditions of contracts, in order to provide for specific needs relating to the project and the terms of its delivery. When incorrectly used, the Z clauses can change the risk profile of a contract or make the it ambiguous. As a result, good project management can be hampered and the project is likely to cost more, or take longer to complete.

The aim of the workshop on Z clauses is to provide guidance, advice and support on how Z clauses can be used to support successful management of the contract and will look at both good and pitfalls to avoid in their use. A useful workshop for anyone involved in drafting Z clauses.

Afternoon session: Active leadership
The ability to lead is fundamental when you’re taking over an NEC project. This will be an interactive session to allow the delegates to share knowledge and experiences of NEC in use.

The afternoon workshop will consider the question of what do we need to do to realise the benefits of NEC3 contracts throughout a projects lifecycle. The workshop will encourage group debate and discussion on how we realise the benefits of NEC3. The workshop will benefit all those involved in the running, management and leadership of NEC3 contracts.
