NEC4 ECC - Managing Time and the Programme
The NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) has been developed for the appointment of a contractor for engineering and construction project work, including any level of design responsibility. It provides a modern method for clients, designers, contractors and project managers to work collaboratively to consistently achieve their objectives.
NEC4 contracts have clarity and transparency in terms of importance, quality and level of detail of communication and programming compared to other forms of contract. To secure successful outcomes, Project Managers need to be in command of time and the programme, and be able to critically analyse and communicate the impact of delays.
Through examples and case studies, delegates enrolled on this course will gain an insight into planning and how to manage time and key programming aspects under an NEC4 ECC contract.
