New guide for ECC project managers
ICE Publishing has just launched a new guide for project managers on NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contracts (ECC). It is ideal background reading for anyone seeking to become an accredited NEC3 ECC project manager.
Published in September 2016, NEC3: The Role of the Project Manager is written by NEC consultant and trainer Barry Trebes and NEC expert Bronwyn Mitchell. The 120-page book explains the role, responsibilities and working relationships of an ECC project manager and how this is integrated
into completion of a works programme.
It also describes technical and behavioural traits that will be of use to ECC project managers. It is divided into a chronological set of learning outcomes that mirror the order in which an ECC construction project is established and implemented.
Practical guidance includes navigating potential pitfalls which may arise during the life of an ECC project, with examples of notifications, instructions, agenda and progress checks.
