New NEC4 Practice Note - Using a Dispute Avoidance Board for contracts covered by the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996

New NEC4 Practice Note - Using a Dispute Avoidance Board for contracts covered by the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996

This practice note has been prepared due to feedback from UK based users who would like to use an independent Dispute Avoidance Board (DAB), rather than using the parties’ Senior Representatives to resolve disputes in a contract where W2 would normally be used. The DAB would be similar to that contained in Option W3 of the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC), as part of a consensual dispute resolution process.
