NEC4: A Guide for Better Delivery of Projects in the Building Sector
NEC4: A Guide for Better Delivery of Projects in the Building Sector is a practical guide to the effective use of the NEC suite of contracts on building projects. Written for an international readership, the book gives an overview of the NEC4 Suite of Contracts, showing how they can be used to deliver better outcomes on building projects. It also compares the contracts with other standard forms, including JCT 2016, FIDIC and PPC2000 contracts, providing an overview of their structure, applicability, strengths and weaknesses.
Topics covered in the book include the NEC4 procurement options, approaches to risk management, programme, payment and change management, and NEC4 dispute resolution processes. Written in an accessible style, the book clearly explains the benefits of using the NEC contract and will help to dispel a common misperception of the NEC as being solely for civil engineering projects.
NEC4: A Guide for Better Delivery of Projects in the Building Sector is suitable for both experienced professionals and also early career practitioners working on building projects, including contractors, architects, and engineers; consultants and quantity surveyors, and project managers.
