The NEC4 Engineering and Construction Short Contract (ECSC) and associated NEC4 Engineering and Construction Short Subcontract (ECSS) are simpler alternatives to the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) and NEC4 Engineering and Construction Subcontract (ECS).

The ECSC and ECSS are for projects which are relatively easy to manage, comprise straightforward work and impose only low risks on the client, contractor and subcontractors. They use a price list, with payments simply made for completion of priced items, or for quantities provided at the agreed rates, or for a combination of both.

Both the main contract and subcontract can include any level of design. They also contain the same definitions and procedures, providing back-to-back protection for the main contractor and consistency of approach throughout the supply chain.

The bundle contains everything you need to prepare, tender and manage an NEC4 ECSC main contract and its associated NEC4 ECSS subcontracts. Each contract document includes forms for the contract data, price list, scope and site information.

The bundle also includes the four-part set of user guides for the ECSC and ECSS: Establishing a Procurement and Contract Strategy, Preparing an Engineering and Construction Short Contract, Selecting a Supplier and Managing an Engineering and Construction Short Contract.

Background

The NEC4 ECSC and ECSS are part of the NEC4 suite of collaborative, flexible and clearly written contracts for built environment procurement. The suite has a global track record for delivering all kinds and sizes of building and infrastructure projects on time, on budget and to the highest environmental and quality standards.

As with all NEC4 contracts, the parties to an ECSC and ECSS are required to act in a ‘spirit of mutual trust and co-operation’ and give early warnings of anything that could affect time, cost or quality so it can be mitigated without delay. Change is dealt with by a fast and fair compensation event process which ensures there are no surprises at completion.
