Sypro's Technical Director, Dr. Stuart Kings has recently released a practical guide for construction professionals called 'NEC3 Practical Solutions'.
Using real and relevant case studies, NEC3 Practical Solutions explores common issues that are faced by project teams when using NEC3® contracts. The authors answer 245 of the most common questions asked, and also advice on prevantative measures.
All construction projects come with an element of risk. Spotting the warning signs early and dealing with them collaboratively can help to avoid cost or time penalties and minimise the negative effects they could have on the project. Find out how to manage early warnings collaboratively.
It is essential to have a Programme to chart the critical path of any project and also to record a timeline of the parties involved, who does what and when. This improve understand by all parties and will be fundamental to the successful delivery of the project. Find out how to ensure the programme is accepted.
Even the best planned projects are subject to change and this applies just as much to the construction industry as any other. To avoid disputes and to manage the project more effectively, its important to manage change in a structured and collaborative way. Read our top tips on successfully managing compensation events.
There is a lot of confusion in practice about the purpose, use and significance of Activity Schedules. Put simply, the activity schedule is a list of items of work which, either directly (under Option A of the ECC) or indirectly (under Option C of the ECC) effect the amount paid to the Contractor.
Projects can be incredibly difficult to plan for due to the large number of considerations there will be throughout the course of a contract.
To help you plan more effectively, we have produced an interactive and downloadable ECC checklist, which is to be used prior to the start of the project to ensure you are fully prepared for the impending works.
