New Zealand clients start using NEC4

I am pleased to report that a public-sector client in New Zealand is planning to use NEC4 contracts.  

The Arts Centre in Christchurch, a collection of 23 heritage buildings held in public trust, is currently undergoing a seven-year, NZ$290 million (£150 million) post-earthquake restoration programme. Project manager RCP is intending to use NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contracts for the second stage, with contracts due to be let early this year. Programme completion is due in 2021.

There also seems to be greater take up of NEC3 contracts by existing users in New Zealand and a positive engagement with the market, with New Plymouth District Council leading the way. 

NEC workshops in Wellington and Christchurch last November were both well-attended – and it was good to see the power transmission sector represented at these events
