NEC is a suite of standard contracts which is flexible in the contracting options and allocation of risk to deliver specific project objectives. It encourages collaborative working between the client, the contractor and the project management team. The suite of contracts has gained momentum in Hong Kong and the Development Bureau, HKSAR Government, recommends the progressive transition from NEC3 to NEC4 in public works projects. 

This seminar introduces the NEC4 Engineering Construction Contract (ECC) covering the development and key principles of the form of contract, its distinctive features, contract strategy and its structure.
